Hello again chilefanz!! Darth Naga here again with another blisteringly hot, mouth watering hotsauce review, the sauce in question today comes from a man we all know and love, “Blair Lazar” of . Blair has been in the game for as long as I can remember and he’s definitely one of the godfathers of the whole hotsauce movement over in the US kinda like a US version of  Stuart McAllistar at HotHeadz.

Blair's Salsa De La Muerte

Blair's Salsa De La Muerte

As with my previous Blair reviews, this one needs no introduction apart from pointing out that this sauce is one of his famous “Death” sauces, but the name is slightly different!

Ingredients: Red and Orange Habaneros, Vinegar, Fresh Cayenne, Smashed Garlic, Chipotle, Lime Juice, Cilantro, Fresh Herbs and Spices.

Okay, so aside from the bottle’s label being almost entirely in spanish, there is no major difference between “Salsa De La Muerte” and its brother “Original Death”, except for the fact that Blair has increased the Habanero content in the “Latin american export” version. The label itself is very colourful and features the blair skull on the front, in flames coupled with the name of the sauce and his famous dangling skull keyring on the neck of the bottle.

The sauce inside is an orangey-red colour that is speckled with black, white and red flecks and its consistency is that of a nicely blended but ever so slightly chunky sauce that pours really nicely. Holding the now uncapped bottle to my nose and inhaling deeply I can immediately smell the garlic, habaneros and cayenne that are sure to make this sauce what it is.

I took my tasting spoon and poured some of the sauce onto it before placing it in my mouth and holding the sauce on my tongue to be able to fully appreciate the myriad of flavours that the bottle recited..and there they were, instantly the amazing flavour of garlic and habanero’s fused with coriander and topped off with the unmistakable aftertaste of my second favourite pepper…the cayenne.

The burn is immediate and dances playfully on the tip of my tongue and then spreads all over but stops short of causing an all round burn, then it subsides to a dull ache in the center of my tongue, until i take another spoonful and the all round burn is achieved!!! This is definitely a sauce that builds in heat, almost as if it takes one lot to open up the tastebuds then another to light a small but lingering fire!

For flavour and heat among US sauces you will be hard pushed to beat Blair and his “Death Sauce” range, but over here in the UK? well lets just say we have the advantage over the US and our sauces show that, but hey thats a discussion for another time eh?

This sauce is a pocket-pleasing-wallet-loving price of £4.99 over at and at that price you’d be hard pushed to find a good US made sauce that has as much flavour coupled with enough heat to satisfy alot of people i can tell you!

Till next we meet my chilli padawanz, may the sauce be with you, always!
