Gator Hammock Lethal Gator Hot Sauce

June 27, 2019

   Gator Hammock is a company from Felda, Florida and since 1989, founder Buddy Taylor has been making delicious, high-quality products. These products are hand-made with all-natural ingredients in order to keep the freshest taste possible! Nearly all his products have earned awards and Buddy has even been featured on the Food Network’s "Food Finds of the Everglades!” His company not only makes hot sauce, but spice rubs, barbecue sauce, and mustard!

   With its fresh blend of a variety of different peppers, along with other classic Louisiana ingredients, the taste of Gator Hammock Lethal Gator is complex. It’s tangy, savoury, and spiced. This makes for a delicious flavour profile that I’m sure almost all of you would enjoy! Louisiana style hot sauce, which is comprised of aged cayenne peppers, distilled vinegar, salt, and xanthan gum works as the base to which all the other ingredients are added. As you can tell from what’s in it, it’s the classic mix! Distilled vinegar also preserves the sauce, adding a rather distinguishable tang. Red habanero peppers, red scotch bonnet peppers, jalapeno peppers, cayenne peppers, as well as crushed red pepper are all in the sauce. Talk about a big variety! This makes for a rather complex pepper flavour which I would best describe as a bit fruity, citrusy, and floral. Water balances out the acidity, saltiness, and consistency of the sauce while the granulated garlic and fresh garlic give this sauce a great zingy flavour. The mildly prominent garlic taste, for me, completes this sauce. Key lime juice also adds a bit of citrusy tang to complement the vinegar and peppers while the salt, along with black pepper and celery seed make this a perfectly seasoned product. The onion powder also adds a lightly sweet savouriness.

   Though I wouldn’t call it a lethal hot sauce, it’s got a pretty decent heat level that one would hope to get from one made with habaneros and scotch bonnets. I would therefore give this one a 5 out of 10 in terms of spiciness. I would recommend it to all of you who enjoy the tangy flavour of Louisiana-style hot sauces with an extra jolt of heat. So, if you can at least kind of handle the heat of the peppers in the sauce, this one should be enjoyable for you as well as your chile head friends and family!

   Enjoy Lethal Gator with Southern U.S., Mexican, and Tex-Mex dishes! It’s got the kind of flavour that can complement so many different cuisines and meals. Add some to your fried chicken, tacos, tofu, rice and beans, slow-cooked meats, seafood boils, fried fish, fajitas, sautéed shrimp or scallops, ham and cheese sandwiches, grilled chicken, slow-cooked black-eyed peas, hummus, veggies, and more!

   Come by one of our store locations and give Gator Hammock Lethal Gator Hot Sauce a try! Don’t worry, it’s not actually lethal!

As always, Keep it spicy!

CaJohns Hydra Hot Sauce

February 11, 2020

CaJohns Hydra Hot Sauce is definitely a force to be reckoned with! Made with 7-Pot Primo chilies, it’s got a fresh heat that you’d expect to get from this brand. Hydra is in fact a very pepper-forward sauce, meaning that much of the flavour comes from the main pepper itself.

Dawson Original Hot Sauce

Smells good. Tastes good. Hot as hell. But manageable.

The toe was damn hot!!!

The toe of satan is friggin so hot. It's one thing to eat something hot and swallow it. The toe is 9 million scolville but you are sucking on it. Need I say more!!! Picture was for fun but that was about 20 mins after!!

Perfect if you like strong vinegar-y sauces.

So my partner loves this sauce, but she loves kimchi and all things vinegar/acid-y. So I'm giving this 4 stars based on her opinion.

The normal Hellfire Detroit is one of my favorite sauces of all time for reference; however Bourbon Habanero Ghost is too tart/acidy for my taste, its also considerably hotter (which is welcome for some but a difference to note), I'd say 40% hotter than normal hellfire.

Good flavour with lingering heat

This is a pretty darn hot sauce, but the underlying flavour is still noticeable. This is a good one to have in your collection for those liking a strong kick now and then.

So good!

Bought this set as a gift for my brother who collects hot sauce and he liked it a lot. The Chicago one works well with guacamole! While the Adobo loco packs a punch. 10/10 would purchase and try other stuff again! Also the packaging is great and it arrived in perfect condition.
