It’s not everyday you come across a sauce that states on the label, ‘Add to everything’. Very bold statement, but then again it is from The Wiltshire Chilli Farm so I have no doubt they can back this up with its ‘Hellish Habanero’.

The Wiltshire Chilli Farm - Hellish Habanero

The Wiltshire Chilli Farm - Hellish Habanero

The bottle is stumpy and probably around the 200ml kind of size with nothing less than there professionally marketed glossy labelling which offers class, character and charm to its appearance. This bottle has a cheeky yet evil feel to it with its frightful and comical pumpkin grinning away.

‘This limited edition HOT sauce is packed with Habanero’s, Nagas and just a few Chipotles. Add to everything’ Followed with a humorous warning, ‘Pretty darn hot’. All I can say is bring it on Wiltshire Chilli farm, trying to intimidate me with your scary pictures and lingo on the bottle. You don’t scare me.

Ingredients: Habanero (35%), Cider vinegar, Naga Chilli, Onions, Chipotle, Garlic.

Bottle kindly provided by The Wiltshire Chilli Farm

Short list of ingredients here which makes it a nice and simple sauce. The smell is fairly typical of a Naga sauce but you get a mild Habanero aroma coming through too. To be fair Nagas do have a powerful smell so even a small amount would stick out. No other smells to report of, no overpowering vinegar or onion ect, just Chilli galore.

Nothing to fear in this sauce I reckon so come on Hellish Habanero, lets dance!!!

Ok so that’s the spoon done, and may I take this opportunity to take The Wiltshire Chilli farm to court for false advertising. ‘Pretty darn hot’???? Don’t you mean ‘Blow your head while kicking you in the stones with steel toe caps hot??? Jeez guys, for a non extract sauce that’s evil in a bottle. Last time I judge a sauce like that. The flavour is very much a Habanero taste but it strangely acts like a Naga where it takes a good 10-15 seconds before any heat comes off it. Before hand its just a lovely Hab flavour with a touch of fruitiness and naga. I was very tempted to have a second helping as it was soooo mild to start with, I just started chuckling to myself, it has no heat. More fool me. The heat started building at a stupid rate and before I knew it I was world hiccup champion with tears of joy for the flavour, but at the same time a pleasant pain. This sauce has immense heat and gorgeous flavour. Tastes are complimentary of each other and I am struggling to think of what this will not go with. I take my hat off to you Hellish Habanero, you caught me by surprise but was happy you did. Great bottle, great sauce. Simple as that.

I cannot tell you the price as it’s a limited edition bottle so pop www.justchillies.co.uk and drop them a mail. These guys wont rob you so don’t stress, good products at good value for money.

So until next time Chilliheads remember, if it burns going in, it will burn coming out.
