Review: DragonFire Infusion Hot Sauce

DragonFire Infusion Hot Sauce

The bottle says, “It’s good Karma!”.

Geez I wonder in what incarnation I have heard that before. Needless to say this is not a ground breaking sauce. You know what they say, Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Well”¦. In this case not so much. But it is a good attempt.

I went to their web-site hoping for something substantial. You can go check it out yourselves. I would love to slam this sauce but I can’t. Simply cause it is pretty good. This is the stuff I find (labels only) at Pubs that want to add some flexibility and help out the macho chili-head that wants to go beyond their home-made suicide sauce. Well this is not that stuff. So if you ever see it sitting in a pantry at your local watering hole make sure to give it a try.

The aroma is vinegar pepper sauce. Vinegar is first on the nose followed up by peppers (mainly jalapenos and serranos I am guessing) and then a good wash of garlic. I was happy to see that it had a stopper on the top as the consistency is very watery. The stopper allows for a controlled frustrated shake to get the sauce out. Fine by me!

Ingredients: Distilled White Vinegar, Chili Peppers, Garlic, Spices, Salt, Sugar

This sauce screams fish & chips. In fact I think I am going to do some proper this Friday at Bishop and Belcher. Fried foods and Asian foods have a new good friend here.

DragonFire is all over the board here in so many different elements. I think some retooling all around could make this a serious contender for a top notch medium green sauce.

Packaging 4/10 ““ dull and uninformative
Aroma 10/10 ““ Smells better than it tastes
Appearance 5/10 ““ watery and green
Taste 7.4/10 ““ surprisingly good taste ““ lots of garlic, vinegar and peppers
Heat 2/10 ““ even after a full tablespoon straight up barely noticed any heat

Overall 6.7/10 ““ All over the place sauce here ““ if possible, sample before purchase ““ you may love it!
