I just received a bottle I bought of the Naga Viper sauce from the UK’s Chilli Pepper Company. You can find them at www.chileseeds.co.uk. For those of you not in the know, the Naga Viper was just recently tested by a college in the UK and now posts a claim to be the hottest chile pepper in the world with a staggering 1,340,969 SHU’s (Scoville Heat Units). I am sure further testing needs to be done to secure the title because the above college said the sampling was smaller than one would want. In any case, let them have their title for I do not like the bhut jolokia anyway! HA! The Naga Viper is a cross between the Jolokia and the Trinidad Scorpion. Ahh, technology!
Will the heat be too much? Will the taste be much like extract or will there be flavor hidden beneath all that scoville power? I opened up the bottom and had a wee bit to share with you.
