For Serious Chileheads Only: Dave's Gourmet Scorpion Pepper Hot Sauce

Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Peppers
Trinidad Scorpion Peppers
The Trinidad Moruga scorpion pepper recently dethroned the jolokia or ghost pepper as the NEW world's hottest chili pepper. Consistently measured at over 1.2 million Scoville Heat Units (SHU) and often surpassing 2 million SHU, this frighteningly fiery hot pepper from the Moruga district of Trinidad & Tobago is sweeping through the hot sauce world like an uncontrollable wildfire.

Described as beginning with a innocently sweet, fruitlike flavor that quickly evolves into a blazing burn that continues to mount in intensity until it engulfs your mouth with flames, the scorpion pepper is easily five or six times hotter than the hottest variety of habanero pepper. In other words, it's not to be trifled with.

But if you are an experienced, hard-core chilehead and fiery-foods fanatic who's always in search for the next hottest hot pepper or sizzling ultra-hot sauce, you'll be glad to know that the Carolina Sauces online store now carries Dave's Gourmet Scorpion Pepper Hot Sauce.

Dave's Gourmet Scorpion Pepper Hot SauceThis newest member of the Dave's Gourmet sauce family is the hottest non-extract hot sauce to hit the market from this beloved (and infamous) hot sauce brand. Unlike other scorpion pepper hot sauces, this one delivers unadulterated, straightforward scorpion pepper flavor and fire. There are no other peppers in Dave's Scorpion Pepper Sauce, nor are there any flavor-imparting seasonings or ingredients like onion, garlic or even carrot. No, ladies and gentlemen, this one is nothing but crazy-hot, deceptively fruit-like Trinidad scorpion pepper, blended with the bare minimum base ingredients to turn the chilies into a sauce (in this case, it's acetic acid and water, with salt and xanthan gum playing minor but necessary roles).

One good thing about Dave's Gourmet Scorpion Sauce -- in addition to the fact that it's made using only natural ingredients -- is that it doesn't rely on capsaicin extract or oleoresin to unnecessarily prolong or magnify the already-extreme heat of the scorpion chili. Thus, it's not as painfully hot as other extract-enhanced ultra-hot sauces. This makes it an excellent choice for those of us who appreciate intensely hot hot sauces and the unique flavor of each type of hot pepper, but don't want to experience any unpleasant aftertastes or bitter notes from extracts. Unlike other extreme hot sauces, this one can be enjoyed as an all-purpose table sauce or cooking ingredient when you're really craving a big wallop of peppery heat.
