Fatalli – Brighton Hot Stuff

Fatalli – Brighton Hot Stuff

Fatalli by @brightonhotstuff. A fantastic fresh smelling sauce; lots of Scotch Bonnet citrus aroma coming from the bottle. A runny, vinegar style sauce that has a beautiful glowing red/orange colour to it. Nice tangy acidity, lots of lemon and citrus peel coming through, rounded off by honey like sweetness. The heat is punchy yet mellow, and catches up with you after the sweetness passes. A wonderfully balanced sauce, this is one I found I was adding to almost everything I ate, including Hobnob biscuits! (try it). Really one of the best tasting sauces I’ve had in a long time. 8.5/10. from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2n9htJY

Buffalo Sauce – Meatlust

Buffalo Sauce – Meatlust

Buffalo Sauce by @meatlust. A thick, sticky, glossy sauce that has a fantastic bright neon-orange colour. A nice acidic heat from the cayenne, followed by a very sweet, caramel buttery flavour. It’s certainly something different, but I’m just not liking the combination of the butter flavour (comes from added butter powder) and the high sweetness. Sorry guys, I really don’t like this one, it’s far too sickly for me, and I’ve not found a use for it that I like. If the butter flavour was toned down I think it would be much nicer, it just tastes a bit artificial to me. However I think some people may really like this sauce, so I would say it’s worth a try if you like something sweeter. 4/10.

Trinidad Scorpion Chilli Peanuts – Hot-Headz

Trinidad Scorpion Chilli Peanuts – Hot-Headz

Trinidad Scorpion Chilli Peanuts by Hot-Headz. Labeled as “The hottest peanuts in the world”, these nuts seriously pack some punch. The heat comes after a few seconds, and BOOM hits like a tank. Serious intense heat on the tongue that stays isolated at first, and then shortly after spreads around the mouth and throat. The heat is raw tasting due to it being powder, and the nuts don’t offer a lot of overall flavour beyond the chilli. Not something I’d go back as a snack unless I felt a little sadistic. 5/10. from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2m2Vz6B

RedHot Xtra Hot – Franks

RedHot Xtra Hot – Franks

RedHot Xtra Hot by @franksredhot. An aged-cayenne and vinegar sauce that is famous for being the world’s most popular Buffalo Wing hot sauce. Sweet red pepper and mildly acidic flavour dominates, there is a hint of butteryness even though the sauce contains no fat. An itchy, peppery heat hits the throat, and a warm glow stays for a while in the mouth. This sauce is super versatile and goes so well on eggs, chicken, rice, pasta, sandwiches etc thanks to its simple flavour & heat. My ‘go to’ cheap and cheerful sauce, if you’ve not had this then get to your supermarket and give it a go! 7.5/10. #hotsaucereview #chillisaucereview #hotsauceuk #hotsauce #chillisauce #franksredhot #franks #iputthatshitoneverything #hotsauceoneverything from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2mAp6bE

Waha Wera – Kaitaia Fire

Waha Wera – Kaitaia Fire

Waha Wera Kiwifruit & Habanero sauce by @kaitaiafire, all the way from New Zealand. A lovely sauce containing organic chillies and Manuka honey, and a load of kiwi! The strong honey flavour balances the tart of the kiwi, which does come through well. A huge fresh hit of Habanero heat follows the sweetness, and makes for a super tasty sauce. This is nice enough to eat by itself, but I struggled a little to match this with foods since it’s pretty sweet compared to other sauces. It makes for a great dip when stirred into a little natural yoghurt. Delicious. 7/10. #hotsaucereview #chillisaucereview #hotsauceuk #hotsauce #chillisauce #kiwi #newzealand #newzealandchillisauce #kaitaia from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2m25i0I

Manda Chilli Sauce – Medium Hot

Manda Chilli Sauce – Medium Hot

A Zambian sauce from @manda_chilli. A very unique tasting sauce… Tastes herbal, citrusy, earthy/rooty, and spicy all at the same time. I wish I knew what spices are in there, but I think I can taste fennel and caraway. Decent heat from the Habanero, doesn’t overstay its welcome. It’s quite thick, and goes really well with white fish and chicken. Nothing wrong with this sauce, the flavour is great but it needs to be paired with the right food. 6.5/10. #hotsaucereview #chillisauce #hotsauce #chillisaucereview #mandachilli #hotsauceuk #zambia #africanchillisauce #africa from Instagram: http://ift.tt/2msp5nG

Mr. Singh’s BBQ Chilli Sauce

"Seems like a successful experiment between a chilli-barbecue sauce, and a HP style brown sauce."

Mr. Singh’s BBQ Chilli Sauce

Mr. Singh's is a family success story, one that started in a garden shed and now has it's products in stores such as Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, and Ocado. It seems now that Mr. Singh's is going from strength to strength and is planning to release more sauces and products later in the year.

Mr. Singh’s is a family success story, one that started in a garden shed and now has it’s products in stores such as Selfridges, Harvey Nichols, and Ocado.  It seems now that Mr. Singh’s is going from strength to strength and is planning to release more sauces and products later in the year.

First of all, I was struck back by the fantastic packaging and bottle design of Mr. Singh’s BBQ Chilli Sauce, a real gem on the shelf this one.   Twisting the lid off for the first time, a big, rich aroma hits me – dark soy and sour fruit notes makes my mouth water.

Mr. Singh’s BBQ Chilli Sauce has a lovely smooth, thick consistency; it appears to the eye as sticky but actually it’s just got a glossy shine to it – a real good looking sauce that is great for pouring or dipping.

On my first try of Mr. Singh’s BBQ Chilli Sauce I immediately get a dark, sour, soy taste, a strong tamarind flavour is present.  A sharp yet warming heat makes it’s presence, followed by a long after burn.  The sauce is finished with subtle sweetness, which compliments the sourness perfectly. Really big flavours going on here.

The heat lasts but is not unpleasant; it’s a complex chilli profile and clearly comes from fresh chilies rather than an extract, lots of layers to the heat.

This BBQ Chilli Sauce is so far proving to be a versatile sauce; amazing with rice, noodles, and roasted meats, and also goes well with eggs, vegetables, and in sandwiches.

Mr. Singh’s BBQ Chilli Sauce is not a standard tasting American style barbecue sauce – it’s more soy flavoured than ketchup & sugar, and has much more sourness than sweetness.  In fact, I’d be happy to say this seems like a successful experiment between a chilli-barbecue sauce, and a HP style brown sauce.

A huge, dark monster of a sauce, Mr. Singh has torn-up the Barbecue sauce rule book and delivered a unique and standout sauce.  I’m really enjoying the sauce and look forward to using it each time.

Sainsbury’s Smokey Chipotle Chilli Ketchup

"Sainsbury's Smokey Chipotle Chilli Ketchup is a nice ketchup, the chipotle chilli adds an interesting smokey savoury note to an otherwise sweet ketchup. "

Sainsbury’s Smokey Chipotle Chilli Ketchup

Chipotle chillis are smoked jalapenos, usually dried or preserved in sauce which add a wonderful warm and rich smokiness to foods. Sainsbury's have brought out a tomato ketchup that has the trendy ingredient added to it - Sainsbury's Smokey Chipotle Chilli Ketchup.

Chipotle chillis are smoked jalapenos, usually dried or preserved in sauce, which add a wonderful warm and rich smokiness to foods.  Sainsbury’s have brought out a tomato ketchup that has the trendy ingredient added to it – Sainsbury’s Smokey Chipotle Chilli Ketchup.

The ketchup is slightly darker than a standard ketchup, and the consistency is perhaps slightly thicker too.

Sainsbury’s Smokey Chipotle Chilli Ketchup initially tastes very familiar – the super sweet tomato ketchup flavour is here, balanced with a slight vinegar tang, but the sauce soon develops into a rich, savoury, unami flavour in the mouth, a subtle smokiness making it’s way through at the end of the tasting.  The smokiness is not harsh or dominating, it adds a bit of ‘bonfire’ to the sauce.

I can’t get any chilli heat from the ketchup which is a shame, but I’d be interested to know if anyone else does.  I’m not going mark it down for this since it’s not labelled as a ketchup with lots of chilli heat.  I suppose you could always add some chilli flakes to the ketchup, something I’ll be doing.

Sainsbury’s Smokey Chipotle Chilli Ketchup is a nice ketchup, the chipotle chilli adds an interesting smokey savoury note to an otherwise sweet ketchup.    It goes brilliantly with food as ketchup tends to, but thanks to the chipotle this is more interesting to add to foods than other ketchups.

The sauce is priced at £1.00 for 310g, while Sainsbury’s standard ketchup is priced at £1.20 for 680g. If you’re talking value for money, I don’t believe that Sainsbury’s Smokey Chipotle Chilli Ketchup is interesting or different enough to purchase over Sainsbury’s standard ketchup.  If Sainsbury’s added some chilli heat to this ketchup then it would make it much more attractive to buy at that price.

Cottage Delight Very Hot Cajun Sauce

"The Cajun flavour comes from a slight hint of mustard, coupled with the fruity and zingy pepper taste – delicious!"

Cottage Delight Very Hot Cajun Sauce

The sauce is a bright orange colour with flecks of red, a really attractive and natural looking sauce which has come from blending up the Habanero and Scotch Bonnet peppers.

This is the second sauce I’ve tried from the Hot & Spicy Assortment of Cottage Delight sauces and chutneys I was sent recently.  See my review of the Cottage Delight Mexican Hot & Sweet Jalapeño Sauce from the same pack.

Cottage Delight Very Hot Cajun Sauce is a bright orange colour with flecks of red, a really attractive and natural looking sauce which has come from blending up the Habanero and Scotch Bonnet peppers.

On tasting, the sauce has a rich, citrusy chilli pepper taste with a high vinegar kick.  The Habanero pepper really stands out here, and is matched perfectly with the fruity Scotch Bonnet pepper.  The Cajun flavour comes from a slight hint of mustard, coupled with the fruity and zingy pepper taste – delicious!

I much prefer the runnier, vinegar based consistency of the Cajun sauce to the jammy Mexican Hot, I find that a sauce of this consistency is much more versatile and easier to eat in larger amounts.

Cottage Delight Very Hot Cajun Sauce is a really tasty sauce and I would recommend this as a store-cupboard staple since it’s a sauce that has a pure Habanero and Scotch Bonnet flavour, but with a good amount of depth thanks to the Cajun finish.
