Review: Acid Rain Hot Sauce

Posted by Rick M on Nov 6th 2011

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.
