The opinions expressed in these reviews are soley those of their author.
Rather basic labeling, the bottle is colored according to the alcohol they use but otherwise there is not visual depiction of the character of the hot sauce.
Classic red hot sauce color, texture and consistency is very fine and homogeneous. A little on the lighter side but not too runny or oily.
Chili peppers with a hint of cheap agave tequila.
This hot sauce has no vinegar so there is nothing in the way of a traditional pickled pepper taste. The first note I picked up was watered down cheap tequila, the kind you get when you order the house margarita at a Mexican restaurant. The peppers come in later and are rather non-descript. It wouldn't be too much of a stretch to say I got some phenolic clove flavors as well.
If you've had red hot, the intensity and duration is pretty much identical.
Overall this is an easy to use hot sauce that won't offend anyone. The tequila flavor is present but somewhat subdued. This hot sauce is vegetarian friendly, gluten free, 100% natural, and vinegar free so it should go well with a variety of dishes and people.
