I am enjoying this set of hot sauces. The Jalapeno is tasty with a little heat - maybe the best tasting simple Jalapeno hot sauce I've tried to date (& I'm 71 & have enjoyed Jalapenos since I was 3 yrs old. The Garlic Habanero is tasty & leaves a nice after burn. The Mango Scotch Bonnet has a great Caribbean flavor with a heat similar to the Habanero above. The last 2, Scorpion & Ghost Pepper are both flavorful & both leave an awesome afterburn yet not intolerable.
ok so right off, i gave the jalapeno sauce to my gf who doesnt like hot things and she loved it. especially on tacos.
i was a little dissapointed with the heat of the mango scotch bonnet, as it was more mango than anything.
the garlic habanero is great..better than habanero tabasco.
now onto the real stars of this show.. the ghost pepper is exactly what I want in a hot sauce.. hot and slightly smokey tasting. the heat really shows and the flavor is amazing.
the best is for last.. the scorpion pepper sauce is BEYOND AMAZING! the heat is ridiculoius but it is amazing..i plowed through that bottle in 3 days.. i added the last 8th to the half bottle of the mango scotch bonnet and ended up with an amazing flavor. just ordered 4 bottles of the scorpion sauce again and will continue to do so. its my new addiction.
summary: this gift set delivers the heat, in a good way. there is something for everyone, and the scoville warriors will appreciate the heat. im from new mexico and we like the burn. of note to PEPPERJOES please put the dabber tops in all your sauce bottles. dumping half a bottle on food can ruin the experience, as good as the sauce is. i would buy this set over and over again if i didnt like the scorpion sauce so much. great job!
Pepper Joe’s has master the hot sauce game. Every one is better than the next. All 5 of these have their own distinct flavor and even the jalapeño has a good kick to it. Nothing is over the top, just a well balanced mixture. And the free seeds with every purchase is a nice added touch. By the time I’m done, I’ll have 500 Genghis Khan and Rusalka’s Revenge plants.
First of all, even during a national pandemic (covid-19), this company gets their product shipped very quickly! Within an hour of placing the order, I received a tracking number. Upon opening my box, I discovered that they also gave me a few seeds! I received Genghis Khan Brain, Rusalka’s Revenge and Big Delicious Tomato (Thanks!!!) As far as the sauces go, I taste tested all of the sauces and they all are exceptional & of course pretty hot, but if used in correct ratios, you can really taste the flavor of the sauces and they’re all amazing. Jalapeño, Garlic Habanero, and Mango Scotch Bonnet are my favorite. The other two are just as good as well. I’ll most likely order again, I’m hoping they drop some Carolina Reaper sauce in the near future. Thanks for the awesome products !!
