D.L. Jardine's Blazin' Saddle
By Belly Buddy David Lauterbach
D.L. Jardine's Blazin' Saddle Habanero Pepper Sauce is what I would call "zesty." In fact, the label calls the bottle "zesty" as well. It's not what I would consider a traditional hot pepper sauce. It's orange coloring is probably largly due to the fact that one of the main ingredients is carrots. Sounds odd for a hot sauce, but when they combined them with Habanero peppers from the foothills of the Mayan mountains in Belize, Central America, they really found an interesting combo.
It's not overpowering, but it gets my tongue all riled up. The maker claims the pepper reaches 285,000 on the scoville scale, but it certainly didn't seem that hot to me... it won't blow your ass out, but I also wouldn't call it mild.
I used a whole 5oz bottle straight from the spout onto some unseasoned chicken wings and it did a great job turning that plain poultry into some really good Buffalo wings. I felt the seeds in the sauce were unwarranted however... I know I'll be seeing them on the other side.
