When I first opened Mad Cat Hot Sauce it reminded me of hot Italian dressing. The red wine vinegar dominated the smell and the taste. It left the heat of the habaneros and flavors of cilantro, garlic and salt to dance in the background. The red wine vinegar was so dominant that it overpowered the lime juice, and the flavor of onion was also no where to be found.
The Mad Cat Hot Sauce dwelled in my refrigerator, but I decided to give it a second chance. The vinegar had mellowed out, which allowed the spices and the habaneros to ride in the driver’s seat. The lime juice and onion could now be tasted too.
