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
