REVIEW: Hellfire Hot Sauce – Chilimaster’s Reserve

Chilimaster's Reserve

Much like the reviews we did last year for Hellfire Hot Sauce, we have another stellar 4 reviews. We finish off with perhaps the most unique of the Hellfire product line. Check out this ingredient list:
Chocolate Habanero, Scorpions, Jolokia, Naga, 7-Pot, Black Raspberries, Black Plums, Cherry Juice, Blueberries, Premium Chocolate, Maple Syrup, Honey, Vanilla Bean, Cinnamon, Kentucky Bourbon Whiskey, Black Death Vodka, Salt, Vinegar, and spices. What laboratory was that hatched in? That is a crazy combo for sure, but when you hear the review you will realize, that the mad scientist behind this sauce, is not as mad as one would first believe. Here are the previous successful reviews:

REVIEW: Hellfire Hot Sauce – Evil Bastard Sauces’ Extreme Heat

Extreme Heat

This is the 3rd of 4 reviews we are doing for Hellfire Hot Sauce. The other 2 products had some of the hottest peppers in the world in it, and this one is no different. You can see the other reviews below by clicking onto each one. When you throw in the words “Extreme Heat” into the mix, well then I can imagine that this particular sauce just might be a tad spicier than the previous too. I am sure the review team will fill us in on the heat level. Our squad of reviewers for these reviews is Steve Chambers, Steve “The Machine” Smallwood, and Ryan Graub.

REVIEW: Hellfire Hot Sauce – First Blood

First Blood

We are back with our 2nd of 4 reviews for Hellfire Hot Sauces. In the first reviews we held the spotlight in the award winning Devil’s Gold which you can see HERE. Much like the Devil’s Gold, this First Blood is out of stock at the moment on their website. These are limited edition hot sauces highlighting some super hot chile peppers. In this one the chiles listed are: Bhut Jolokia, 7-Pot, Naga Morich, Moruga & Trinidad Scorpions, Chocolate Habaneros, and 7-Pot Douglah. They round off the ingredient list with Sun Dried Heirloom Tomatoes, Heirloom Garlic, Lemon, Vinegar, Salt and Spices. So it is not all about the heat, but with the name Hellfire, you expect the sauce to be painful in some way. Our review team had to be a tough group to be able to take on these sauces, so we drew straws and this is who we got…Steve Chambers, Ryan Graub, and the one and only, he don’t need no stinkin’ straws, Steve “the Machine” Smallwood.

REVIEW: Hellfire Hot Sauce – Devil’s Gold

Devil's Gold label

Hellfire’s Devil’s Gold won a 1st place Screaming Mi Mi Award at the 1st ever NYC Hot Sauce Expo for the Fruit Based Hot Sauce category. Not a bad way to start off with a limited edition hot sauce. For those that have not followed us last year, we have year end awards called the Lenny Awards. Hellfire Hot Sauce won for best product line for their reviews for 4 of their products – Evil Bastard, Devil’s Blend, Pure Hell and their Blueberry Hell. So I imagine they are looking to recreate the magic with 4 more hot sauces. This is the first, and we will post the other 3 hot sauces over the next 3 weeks. For these reviews we have Steve “The Machine” Smallwood out of Ohio, Ryan Graub from Missouri, and Steve Chambers from Maryland.

REVIEW: Apinya Thai Chili Sauce

Apinya Thai Chile Sauce

I think it is really cool when you get to setup a review for a local company that contacts you and not the other way around. In the town in between my home and work, Apinya Thai Chili Sauce company resides in Herndon, VA. I was happy to oblige Adam Ross the creator. I want to congratulate Adam on the big win at the Fiery Food Challenge at Zestfest 2013 with their first Golden Chile Award for Hot Sauce: Asian-Style – Consumer Ready category. You know you made it big time when you can snatch up one of those bad boys. So what makes this Asian sauce so special?

REVIEW: The Murph’s Famous Bloody Mary Mix

Murph's Famous

I have been doing reviews for 5 plus years now, and every now and then you run across a “character” that you know will be someone you will want to meet sometime in the future. You get that feeling from your first contact that you are dealing with a nice guy with a good sense of humor. Enter The Murph, Stephen “The Murph” Murphy. A Long Islander much like myself, a Met fan much like myself, so we all ready had much in common to talk about through our email exchanges. I recognized his bottles from Peppers of Rehoboth, DE, but I had also seen the bottle at a local Italian Market called Iavarone in the town I grew up in- Wantagh, NY. I go to the grocery store all the time, and every single time I see The Murph Famous Bloody Mary Mix I think of my beloved NY Mets. The Mets’ TV and radio announcers I grew up with as a kid were Ralph Kiner and Bob Murphy. While the name The Murph doesn’t necessarily make me think of Bob Murphy, the picture of Stephen on the bottle reminds of a young Ralph Kiner. I told him this and he got a chuckle out of it.

REVIEW: Evil Seed Sauce Co. – Big Evil BBQ Sauce

Big Evil BBQ

Why do we do 3 person reviews? The answer lies below. Everyone has different tastes. This review clearly shows the division of that within our staff, and it is the reason why we go way beyond the normal 1 person review. That said, we respect all the until review staff here at ILIS and value their opinions. Let us now talk about this new BBQ sauce by Patrick McGill’s Evil Seed Sauce Company. What kind of BBQ Sauce is it? There are so many different styles out there from mustard, vinegar, molasses sweet, hickory, mesquite, etc. Well there is nothing coming from their website, so we will just have to go to the reviewers for that information. I have never been a fan of Carolina style of BBQ sauce which either is mustardy, vinegary or both for the most part. I am hoping it is more the molasses Memphis thick and tangy style of which I am a big fan. It is Big Evil, so I am expecting a bit of a kick with the BBQ Sauce.

REVIEW: Evil Seed Sauce Co. – Asylum Crazy Hot Sauce

Asylum Crazy Hot Sauce

I thought this was a good product to post on 12-12-12 at 12:12pm. Right before the Peppers at the Beach show this past May, we had a couple of reviews for this new hot sauce company. I love the image and look of their website, their bottles, the entire marketing package is worthy of hot sauce. The man behind the sauce is Patrick McGill who now has hooked us up with a couple more of his newest creations. Today we debut his hottest creaton, Asylum Crazy Hot Sauce, and follow that up next week with his BBQ sauce called Big Evil BBQ. Sounds daunting, eh? I think this coincides nicely with one of my favorite TV shows called American Horror Story. This year’s episodes are called Asylum, so there you go. If you wish to see our earlier reviews for Patrick’s pure black hot sauce simply called Evil Seed Signature Sauce or the Hell Peach hot sauce then simply click the names.
