Review – DEFCON #2 & #1
Coloring/Temperament: Love it. Pours only after shaking the bottle. Orange in color. #1 is darker in color and more difficult to completely blend due to the small bottle. Regardless, these are attractive sauces. Wonderful scent too. Make sure you refrigerate both of these; they contain dairy products. 10 out of 10.
Consistency: Both are faultless; thick enough to get a sufficient amount in every bite. #1 shows some oil around the sauce when left to settle. I assume it’s the oil from the extract. 10 out of 10.
Heat: Wow and WoAhh. #2 is an impeccably created wing (and lamb) sauce. Buttery heat, just enough for ALL, and I mean ALL to enjoy a flavor filled buttery-tasting hot sauce. The #2 is perfect to award everybody to a delicious heat. NO, #2 is NOT chillehead hot. It’s a pleasant heat; and heavenly. I personally love the #2 heat level, mostly due to the buttery taste. #2 heat is not too hot for the average Tabasco user, actually it’s better! BUT, the #1 IS heat filled. Not too overly ‘extracted’; the flavor is still apparent. I’d just say not to give your grandma some DEFCON #1. 24 out of 25
Taste: I had my ex-girlfriend taste some Defcon Condition 2; she LOVED it. Her exact quote was, “This is how hot sauce should taste.” #2 is THE perfect wing sauce. It’s a lovely taste of buttery goodness. It lacks the overly ‘black pepper’ taste of Wing Time, but that’s what makes it so lip-smacking. Condition #1 is HOT. I think it loses that heavenly taste only to add that hot heat heads are looking for.
The DEFCON Creator has done a miraculous job and he really knows his material. You’ll really learn some stuff from his posts on www.thehotpepper.com.
