Geordie Translation:- On a resent trip te The Toon wi cyame across Bernie Bumm’s creator Earl Gough an his range of sauces. Wi tried a few an then selected the hottest one fre a review

On popping open the bottle the smell has the effect of widening your nostrels, as my nose recovers I can smell the white vinegar and the lime. The heat is instant, my mouth is on fire as the heat and then hickups smack me about, a teaspoon now seems a lot of sauce as a taste. WOW a few minutes has passed and I am now back at the keyboard, eyes watered, tongue is throbbing. Still little response from my taste buds, so a much smaller dose this time… it burns… I can feel and it is a feeling of a little sweetness and then I am again wiped out.

Ingredients: Carolina Reaper Chilli, Aubergine, White Vinegar, Apple Juice, Tomatoes, Carrots, Onions, Lime.

So a bit of fail for me tasting this sauce on its own, so later it has been added to my lunch, beans on toast, and then heat becomes more manageable, it is still very hot and just a teaspoon is needed to bring the beans to life, cannot taste the aubergine, but the apple juice and lime are much more noticeable.

You can see on the square bottles that the labels are placed on the corners, Earl told us this was a happy accident as when the first labels arrived they had been made to stock on the sides, but due to the rounded corners on the bottles they started to peel, so they where placed on the corners giving the bottle a unique and very identifiable look.

Best to use this kind of sauce with care the Carolina Reaper is a stupidly hot chilli, tests have seen it pass over 2 Million Scoville units at a peak result and even with the average of 1.5 Million

I felt the flavour leaves a lot to be desired. This person has substituted flavour with ‘maximum’ heat. There are hotter, tasties sauces out there. Not great value for money. Overall not impressed! (edited out personal comment)
