HEAT LEVEL: 5 / 10
I was so excited to get into this sauce because it is produced locally (Ontario). This hot sauce lists its contributing peppers as "Red Peppers" which doesn't really specify the individual peppers used. I suppose we will leave it to our imagination!
What I LOVED about this sauce is the viscosity. It was perfect; not too runny and not too thick. This is important because a runny sauce is so unappealing and it will pool at the base of your dish. The flavour of this sauce is the real star of everything. When it comes to hot sauce, it generally relies on either heat or flavour. When you find one that has equally enjoyable amounts of both, you have a winner! This sauce has a nice sweetness and overall flavour that finishes with an extremely mild, enjoyable heat.
As a lover of all things spicy, this was a bit mild for my taste but it is a great sauce to have on hand with guests whose tolerance levels you are unsure of. It's excellent for cooking with also as it contributes flavour to the overall dish without the extreme heat. If you spot it, grab a bottle.
Great for first timers and really flavourful!
