Chipotle & Garlic

Name: Chipotle & Garlic
Creator: Heinz
Purchased: Sainsburys
Pepper / Sauce Type: Chipotle

Another disappointing hot sauce from Heinz.  Initially your hit with a strong vinegar taste followed by something that I can only describe as a synthetic chipotle flavour.
The third ingredient is the chipotle at 4% meaning the first two ingredients, vinegar and tomato puree are the huge majority of this sauce.

In my opinion Heinz will never produce a great hot sauce.  Bulk production and shelf life see to that.  
Nothing can match the care and attention of a local company growing their own peppers and crafting their own artisan sauces.

Heat: 4 out of 10
Taste: 4 out of 10
Overall: 3 out of 10

Because of the size of the company maybe I’m expecting more and am a little harsh with my review?  It just tastes like something that’s been processed to death.
