Spicy Addict Review
Chone Ghost Pepper and Habanero Hot Sauce is a vinegar forward sauce similar those Louisiana-style sauces like Tabasco and Crystal. The first flavors are a mix of strong tanginess with a faint sweetness. The tanginess comes exclusively from vinegar while I suspect the mild sweetness is derived from the natural sugars found in the onion and garlic. As the lingering effects of the vinegar begin to fade, flavors of onion and garlic are a bit more noticeable followed by the flavor and heat of the habanero, ghost, and even black pepper. Around this point a saltiness is noticed that gently fades to nothing more than an aftertaste.
This sauce has a thin consistency though no water is added. The generous amount of liquid is a reflection of the amount of vinegar used. It works well for any dish where tanginess and acidity are needed. The habanero and ghost peppers make this a spicier and more peppery alternative to other Louisiana-style sauces. This sauce has slightly more robust amount of heat that we rank around a 2.5 on a 5-point heat scale.
