The creators of the TABASCO® brand, the McIlhenny Company, are well known for adding fire to peoples live since way-back-when (1868 to be exact). Today we are diving into their Habanero sauce, which weighs in at a spicy 7,000 SHU, the hottest made by the brand.
HABANERO TABASCO® SAUCE REVIEW
This is the only off-the-shelf hot sauce that delivers a burn whilst having a decent flavour profile to match. With added mango, banana & papaya this spicy sauce is perfect for tacos, chicken and barbecued meats.
A gradient twist on the classic McIlhenny Company label. With yellow fading into the tabasco-red. The 59ml bottle size makes the perfect travel companion.
I wasn’t expecting much from a hot sauce available at most major supermarkets but at 7,000 (SHU) this hottie is packing heat. The initial intensity doesn’t linger, leaving you to get on with your feed.
The initial smell is dominated by vinegar, as is the taste. However, this breed of hot sauce also offers distinct Caribbean flavours with the added mango, banana & papaya really adding some depth to the sauce.
