Review: Monty’s Gourmet Foods – Fire Lizard Habanero Hot Sauce


Monty's Fire Lizard Habanero Hot Sauce
Monty’s Gourmet Foods- Fire Lizard Habanero Hot Sauce

Bottle Description: Monty’s Fire Lizard Habanero Hot Sauce is a masterful blend of all natural ingredients. Red Savina habanero Peppers have been identified as the hottest peppers in the world. Enjoy the Burn!

Ingredients:
Peppers (may contain Red Savina Habanero, Red Habanero), Vinegar, Horseradish, Ginger, Other Spices, Xanthan Gum.

Container: Bottle doesn’t look like it is being marketed to chile heads but rather “gourmet food” shoppers. Looks like a bottle of hot sauce from Whole Foods. Fancy fonts mixed with “edginess” from the badass lizard.

Appearance:
Dark brown with a few seeds, opaque, this stuff has been blended a lot t make a thick sauce.

Smell: Peppers and vinegar play together nicely and do not overwhelm the olfactory senses like many sauces do (vinegary ones). There’s a hint of horseradish and ginger that also gives it a bit of a bite but the overall smell is rather tame.

Taste: My initial thought is that there was a bit too tangy, the vinegar and peppers are a little sour. On second taste they are complemented well by the horseradish and ginger. The ginger really comes through after the peppers and vinegar and such a strong ginger flavor is not something I have encountered very often.

Heat: (7.2/10) this sauce will give you a light scorch. It won’t light you.

Field Test: This sauce is an excellent addition to any food that is already tart. This sauce works well with tomato based sauces. I wouldn’t recommend that you put this stuff on your lunch if it’s a burrito or fries because the taste of ginger and horseradish do not exactly mesh well with those foods. You’ll have to experiment to your liking but I found this sauce delicious on eggs and tomatoes.

Final Word: Temperamental sauce but tasty.

Overall:
7.2/10
