Hellfire Gourmet Red Hot Sauce

December 29, 2017 1 Comment

  Hellfire Gourmet Red Hot Sauce Hellfire Gourmet Red Hot Sauce is one of the strongest-flavoured sauces I’ve had in recent years. It’s a complex sauce with many ingredients that fit so well together. Given the quality ingredients and the flavours that they bring out, this sauce is most definitely gourmet! This product is a total explosion of flavour that I highly recommend to anyone who wants to try a unique hot sauce that you can add to pretty much anything. The rich and savoury flavours will amaze almost anyone who tries it!

   The peppers used in this sauce are red jalapeños, which add a nice fragrance, cayenne peppers, which add a warmer heat, and Anaheim peppers, which are bright and sharp in flavour. The combination of apple cider vinegar, balsamic vinegar, Burgundy Cooking Wine, lemon and lime juice makes for a more complex pungency and tang. The citrusy flavour present is combined with the robustness of the cooking wine, which makes for quite a unique taste! The strong heated taste of the garlic mixed with the intense sweet-tart flavour of the sundried tomatoes adds a good amount of strength to the overall flavour profile of the sauce. The spices of chili powder, cumin, and curry powder add a strong, spiced flavour to the sauce, complimenting the peppers in the sauce. These spices help to add an extra layer of flavour, which helps to make it so suitable with various types of cuisine. The tomatillos add a tart, herbal flavour which works well with the refreshing earthiness of the cilantro. There is also a very slight sweetness to this sauce from the brown sugar. It’s non-invasive to the other flavours in the sauce. This is not a sweet sauce however; the brown sugar simply adds a nice sweet finishing touch!

   Heat-wise, this is a medium-heat level sauce. I give it a 4 out of 10. The average person will find this sauce has a noticeable kick. For an experienced chili head, this sauce should be quite mild! Given this fact, you can use it quite generously on all your favourite meals without having to worry about a scorching burn! This sauce pairs amazingly with Mexican and Southwestern dishes. Enjoy it on tacos, burritos, enchiladas, burgers, nachos, rice, grilled cheese, and in soups, chilis, and stuffed peppers too. I’ve also mixed this sauce in with sour cream, mayo, hummus, and even added it into salsa for an extra jolt of flavour and heat!

   I highly recommend you check out the whole Hellfire lineup of sauces. They offer such a delicious variety of gourmet sauces and are all worth looking into. Come by one of our store locations and give Hellfire Gourmet Red Hot Sauce a try!

As always, keep it spicy!

February 19, 2020

When you think of a bee sting, you probably think of excruciating pain and the need for medical attention. Well get that thought out of your mind for this sauce as it will definitely not sting you much at all! It will, however, provide you with some fresh tropical flavours.

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.

Heartbreaking Dawns Cauterizer

February 04, 2020

The flavour profile of Cauterizer is fruity, tangy, sweet, and savoury. Trinidad Scorpion peppers bring a solid, blazing heat and fruity flavour, with the cider vinegar preserving the sauce while adding some sour notes. Apricot preserves, blueberries, and honey...

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.

Great first purchase!

Grabbed a four bottles to try out the service. Excellent service. Everything arrived, safely packed and in time for Christmas (Truff was pre-owned). Will definitely buy again.

Delicious

Definitely not over hyped. One of the best sauces I've had yet.
