The Chilli Pepper Company - Naga Basco

The Chilli Pepper Company - Naga Basco

I have a bottle in my hand, a bottle with a picture of the Devil as the main image. There’s no doubt in my mind what that means; pain, heat and lots of it!

What it actually means is an attractive artistically labelled bottle of Naga-basco, a super-sized version of the similarly named mainstream version. As always Ged and the team have used great design to achieve yet another evil looking product.

The bottle itself has a similar shape and nozzle to allow the careful sprinkling of the liquid lava within (believe me you want full control of how much you use in one go) and it’s viscosity is similar too, it’s quite runny which enables the user to sprinkle accurately.

Ingredients: Vinegar, Naga Jolokia Chilli, Salt.

Once the cap is removed, a quick wave under the nostrils reveals that tell-tale aroma of the Naga, although there are different variants of the Naga, they all have a similar, fruity, powerful scent when processed. This sauce uses Naga Jolokia and by the looks of it, lots of them! The Naga Jolokia Chilli comes in at just over 1m SHU (Scoville Heat Units)

Right taste time, I pour out enough to fill a teaspoon and even before it reaches my mouth, my nose picks up the vinegar and Naga fruitiness, then it’s in.

The first impression as I move the sauce around my mouth is an unexpected slight sweetness, and then the sourness of the vinegar comes through, then the burn starts and builds steadily but not uncomfortably, so I don’t need to rush to the fridge for milk!

It’s a pleasant burn but don’t get me wrong, it’s still very hot as the label suggests and for those not used to Naga’s should still take care.

To sum up, this is a very nice sauce which can be used to spice up just about any food you want from pizza to salad. The 140ml Bottle should last a while too.
