    Small hip-flask shaped bottle, with bright red plastic neck collar suggestive of danger. Picture of grim reaper, with snarling skull face and usual black, hooded cloak - wielding huge and fearsome curved/ serrated scythe, all within a roman-numeralled clock face, hovering aloft on eagle wings within a ball of red flame. Creates the desired atmosphere and confirmation of the meaning of "hot sauce" wording.


    Medium red-brown; smooth, quite gloopy: prevents it pouring too fast.. sensibly.


    Rich, warm, enticing. Predominantly tomato and caramelised onion smell


    A delight - warming, complex, powerful, balanced, great carrier for inevitable fire. Long-lasting on palate. Really terrific concoction - great in any meaty / tomatoey meal like kebabs, chilli dish, pizza diablo etc. Hey who knows, a tiny amount in a cheese toastie or baked potato with beans could tickle your ivories on a winter night - or make a warming soup from... almost anything. Didn't try alone.


    If you have had hotter, it probably had less good flavour. Burn maxes within a few tens of seconds, nice slow drop-off gives palate a buzz for several minutes. Never totally masked taste of food, unless you use a brain-removal approach. Like a level teaspoonful by itself, instead of trying to appreciate taste....


    Agree with others elsewhere (eg you tube) who enjoyed the heat yet with rounded flavour delivery. A top sauce I couldn't realistically hope to beat for enjoyment in cooking. Note (Carolina) reaper pepper is not in main list .. yet.. is not that uncommon and while mellow tasting, is one of the strongest heatwise (typically reported between 100 000 000 -220 000 000 on Scoville scale).
