Blair’s MegaDeath Hot Sauce Review
Even though the name implies otherwise, you will definitely feel alive after even just the smallest amount of Blair’s Mega Death Hot Sauce. This is one of the hottest sauces on the market but not the spiciest for Blair’s which claims their Ultra Death is even hotter.
The bottle comes in a box and contains Blair’s signature skull keychain, which is proof positive that you survived death. The warning label proclaims, “Be warned: this sauce contains ingredients 500 times hotter than a jalapeno chile. Use sparingly. Not recommended for use without dilution.”
I am sure there are some daring chile lovers out there but this is one forceful sauce not to be reckoned with. There is yet another warning label that states the product contains the hottest known ingredients on the planet so I knew this sauce was not for the feint of heart.
The Mega Death sauce is made with red habanero pods, cayenne chiles, white vinegar, natural pepper flavor, ancho chile, chipotle chiles, molasses, guava nectar, ginger, salt and spices. I decided to try the smallest amount on a chicken taco. The blazing heat was felt almost immediately and I could almost instantaneously feel the sweat forming on my brow. The heat lingered for a long time and I wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to continue eating my meal.
After a while, the heat seemed to wear off and it was only then I started to taste some of the ingredients. The overwhelming red habanero pods are what give the sauce so much heat but when the pain wears off, you can taste not only a hint of chipotle but also the sweet molasses and ginger.
One simple drop in a batch of chili might even be too overpowering but could certainly be diluted with some tomato sauce. The heat from this sauce is definitely overwhelming, which was exactly what I expected, but I have to admit I did not anticipate the flavorful ending, which was a nice surprise. I am not sure how often I will actually use this but when I feel the need to kick things up a notch, I will certainly reach for Blair’s Mega Death Hot Sauce.
The addition of “liquid rage” is guaranteed to make you “feel alive!”
