Wimp Retardant Hot Sauce Review
Wimp Retardant Hot Sauce – Actually, the full name of this sauce is Professor Payne Indeass’s Butt Blazin’ Recipe #3 Wimp Retardant Hot Sauce, but that seemed like an awfully long title for a review. The old-timey label features a man, presumably Professor Payne Indeass (get it?) himself, arms outstretched with a bottle in his hand, a top hat on his head, and his mouth open wide. I can just imagine him saying “Step right up…” A crowd gathers around the edges of what appears to be a picture frame. I like that the label leaves about an inch and a half of the back of the bottle uncovered so that you can easily see the pepper seeds floating around inside. I rate the old-fashioned packaging 5/5. It creates the feel they seem to be going for.
Habanero peppers are the first ingredient. Other noteworthy ingredients include apple cider vinegar, mustard, bay leaf, ginger, allspice, clove, paprika, cardamom, and cinnamon. I rate the ingredient list 5/5. It sounds hot, herby, and delicious! I pour a little onto my plate. The paprika-reddish-orange colored sauce has a thin to medium consistency and a pleasing homemade look to it with hot pepper seeds, black pepper flakes, and plenty of other clearly visible herbs and spices throughout. I rate the excellent consistency 5/5. The scent is a pleasant vinegary mustard and habanero aroma with a kick. Focusing a little more, I can smell the assortment of delicious herbs lingering in the background. The scent has the same homemade feel to it that the consistency does, and I rate it 5/5.
I try a few drops of Wimp Retardant Hot Sauce on my grilled chicken sandwich. My first thought is that there is very little heat, but it sneaks up on you. Although it still doesn’t quite have the in-your-face heat you would expect from a sauce that has habanero peppers as the first ingredient. I consider the heat medium. The outstanding flavors are habanero and vinegar, and the apple cider vinegar gives it a pleasant sweetness. I rate the flavor 4/5, only because it leaves me craving a little more heat. I think this would be good on steak, in salsa, as chicken basting, or on pork roast. It would work very well with almost anything that you want sweet and medium hot with that lovely homemade feel. So while I can’t say whether this will be hot enough to keep wimps away, I can say that this nostalgic sauce is a delicious addition to my hot sauce collection.
