Producer: Marie Sharp’s Fine Foods
Price: 5oz: $3.95, 10oz: $4.99
Ingredients: Green Mangoes, Tamarind, Raisins, Ginger, Sugar, Vinegar, Onions, Garlic, Habanero Peppers and Spices
Appearance: Thick, deep brown sauce with smooth consistency
Aroma: The mix of tamarind and sweetness of fruit give a very complex aroma
Taste: A sweet mix of mangoes, tamarind, and spice, with a hint of vinegar, this sauce shows no noticeable heat and is very similar to many steak sauces. I would not consider this a ‘hot sauce‘. This sauce would go very well on grilled chicken, as a glaze for beef roast, or as a dipping sauce for steak.
Heat: Mild (1).
Conclusion/General Comments: Marie Sharp’s Exotic Sauce has a complex flavor and very pleasant aroma, but would be improved by moving the habanero peppers up in the ingredient list to give the sauce some heat.
Heat: 1 Flavor: 6
Our continued growth has left us literally tripping over stock in our current location. For more than a year we have been searching for a larger warehouse to suit our needs, and that search has finally come to an end! Our new 7000 square foot warehouse opens up the room to operate more efficiently, gives us the ability to add more lines of hot sauce, and allows for some future expansion. Over the next several weeks we will be preparing the new warehouse for our official move. We will add photos as our new warehouse starts to come together.
Producer: Hatari Bros.
Price: 5oz: $4.95
Ingredients: Habanero, piquin, ring of fire, peri-peri, tepin and jalapeno peppers, garlic, ginger, spices, salt, lemon, lime and orange juices and vinegar
Appearance: Red sauce with medium to thin consistency
Aroma: Peppery, with a hint of garlic and only a slight background of vinegar
Taste: The pepper in this sauce hit right away, so you need to be prepared. The heat jumps almost instantly, but remains at a very livable level, allowing you to enjoy the intense flavor of the sauce. Unlike many sauces, vinegar is very much in the background on this sauce, which focuses heavily on the mixture of peppers. It would go well on virtually anything, from eggs to chicken or pork, and because of the low vinegar contribution it would be especially well suited to cooking.
Heat: Hot (8).
Conclusion/General Comments: Acid Rain Hot Sauce has a great flavor and solid heat, but remains well within reason to make it an excellent everyday sauce.
Heat: 8 Flavor: 8
Producer: Southwest Specialty Foods
Price: 5oz: $4.29
Ingredients: Water, Habanero Peppers, Jalapeno Peppers, Tomato Paste, Vinegar, Salt, Fresh Garlic, Black Pepper, White Pepper, Onion Powder, Xanthan Gum, and Spices
Appearance: Reddish brown, medium consistency sauce
Aroma: Tomato with Habanero peppers
Taste: The tomato jumps out right away, but is quickly followed by the habanero peppers. The garlic stays in the background, but does add some extra character to the sauce. Given the weight of the tomato / habanero character in this sauce I do not feel that it really qualifies as a Cajun style, although it does have a good flavor. The heat is a bit over the top for a Cajun style, as well.
Heat: Hot (8).
Conclusion/General Comments: Ass Kickin Cajun Hot Sauce has a good flavor, but is not really a Cajun style, and the heat level of this sauce, although not overpowering, is a bit high for a Cajun style sauce.
Heat: 8 Flavor: 6
Price: 5oz: ~$3.95
Ingredients: Water, Roasted Habanero, Ground Habanero Pepper, Roasted Garlic, Salt, Apple Vinegar, Passion Fruit Juice, Lemon Juice, Xanthan Gum, Acetic Acid
Appearance: Thick, brown, pulpy sauce
Aroma: Complex character with roasted, slightly smoky garlic
Taste: At the front is roasted peppers, with a nice backup of roasted garlic. This is a very pulpy sauce, with little noticeable vinegar character. The heat start out very mild but builds quickly to a nice, smooth level that will not overpower your food. The full roasting makes this sauce too bold for lighter fare, but would be excellent paired with red meets or other hearty foods.
Heat: Hot (6).
Conclusion/General Comments: Irazu Fire Roasted Pepper Sauce is an excellent, complex sauce with tons of character, but is limited in its use due to its depth and bold flavor.
Heat: 6 Flavor: 8
Price: 5oz: ~$4.50
Ingredients: Peppers, water, vinegar, salt, sugar, onion, garlic, thyme, bay leaf, white pepper, oregano, spices, and xanthan gum
Appearance: Brown with ground pepper evident
Aroma: Herbal smell with vinegar following
Taste: The herbs are very much at the forefront of this sauce, followed by the white pepper. The vinegar is kept much more in the background than expected, but the power of the herbs and pepper makes the spices almost unnoticeable. While this sauce is quite pleasant and full-flavored, we have to deduct points for the fact that it is not really a cajun character.
Heat: Hot (7).
Conclusion/General Comments: Sucklebusters Cajun Hot Sauce does not really fit into the cajun category, but is abundant in flavor and packs a more than reasonable heat level for the type of sauce. It would go well with a wide variety of foods.
Heat: 7 Flavor: 7
Producer: Southwest Specialty Foods
Price: 5oz: ~$7.95
Ingredients: Cayenne Pepper, Salt and Vinegar
Appearance: Thick, deep orange-red color
Aroma: Strong cayenne pepper smell with slight hint of vinegar in the back
Taste: Despite the ingredient list and aroma, the vinegar and salt are the first to jump out, followed by a very nice punch of cayenne. Obviously, being strictly a cayenne sauce the heat is quite tame, but for a change from habanero sauces, this would be an excellent choice. It would go extremely well on eggs or fish! Pure Cayenne hot sauce would also go very well in a cooking application where a mild bump in heat is desired, as the flavor should flow through quite nicely.
Heat: Medium (6).
Conclusion/General Comments: Pure Cayenne Hot Sauce is a great entry into hot sauces, as it is mild compared to most habanero based sauces, and has a wide range of applications due to being unadulterated. This should be a staple in every cupboard.
Heat: 6 Flavor: 8
