Flavor Name: Pepper JolokiaSize: 5 Ounce
I purchased a burrito from a small shop a few blocks from home. I was unimpressed with their habanero "hot" salsa. Eager to kick it up a notch, I reached for a bottle of what I later found to be Dave's Gourmet Ghost Pepper Jolokia Hot Sauce. I unscrewed the top and went to put a dab on. I quickly realized that there was no flow regulation but not before a large pool of the magma colored liquid dripped into my lunch. I decided to dab my finger in it and see what I was dealing with. It was formidable, sweet and flavorful with a long heat. I thought I could take the heat.

I demolished the burrito, hot sauce and all, and shrugged off the pain. Every bite was saturated with the taste of a thousand tortured souls but the guacamole still tasted great. I wiped my tingling lips and while downing a glass of water I looked at the bottle. It claimed a heat rating of "Insanity++." I headed home thinking surely the worst must be over. I've ate plenty of hot food and my stomach is battle tested. I was wrong.

I walked no more than a block before I started to feel odd. It was in the forties in Cleveland but I could feel the sweat forming on my brow. I walked another block and I could literally feel the burning sensation outlining my stomach. My breaths were noticeably faster and shorter. People on the street looked at me weird. I figured it would go away by the time I got home but I decided to pick up the pace. By the time my apartment was in sight I was experiencing tunnel vision and it felt like a live agitated weasel had been placed inside me. I knew what I had to do. After flushing my lunch, a tablespoon of this sauce, half a gallon of milk, and my ego down the drain, I can honestly say I am just happy to be alive. This sauce is not for mortals.

Flavor Name: Ultimate InsanitySize: 5 ounces
So I'm someone who really likes hot food - probably most people who try Dave's think the same. Maybe you always order the spiciest curries, maybe you're fed up with weaksauce hotsauces that over-promise and misrepresent with names like "Hellfire Damnation", "Searing Ring" or "Tokamak Fusion". I was like that too.

So when I first came across Dave's, I felt pretty jaded. "Just use a couple of drops," urged my friend who served as my introduction to Daves. "I think I know hot sauces," I said confidently, as I splashed it liberally over my pizza. Two minutes later, I became a wiser and more chastened person, as every mucus membrane on my face was alive with the pain of turbocharged Capsicum and pouring tears or snot over my taut, red and blotchy face. This was less of a condiment than it was a chemical incapacitation agent. Lesson learned.

In the 12 years since that first encounter. Dave and I have become better acquainted. We've had our ups and downs, and I've learned it's better to treat him like that slightly crazy friend who can make even the blandest event a lot more fun, but you need to keep a close eye on to make sure he doesn't end up going too far. No one is going to lose an eye, but they may think it would be a less painful distraction if they had, at least for an hour or so.

Some observations:

1. Dave's Insanity Sauce or, better yet, Ultimate Insanity is a very economical and long-term investment. If you have a lower tolerance, it may even turn out to be a valued family heirloom, but only if your children and grandchildren like hot things. I still buy and use Tabasco fairly frequently, but it always seems to be running out and it's not as cheap as its ingredients imply. You will likely not have this problem with Dave's.

A few hours ago, I put a dime sized dab of this sauce on a corn chip and scarfed it down. Initially, it was hot but certainly no hotter than other sauces I've had. I quickly followed up with another dime sized dab on a chip. Shortly thereafter, it began to feel as if my tongue was being electrocuted. My eyes began to sting and my lips went numb. The ecstasy brought about by eating spicy food poured up out of my mouth and into my head. I laid down and the dog started to act very worried. While prostrate, I focused on the pain and stared into the darkness of my own eyelids. Every little thing becomes significant when the mind is seeking relief from pain. I do not know what will happen when this stuff makes its way through my digestive tract. I'll be eating more soon.

This is the stuff hallucinogens bow before. The warning states that it's not for anyone with poor heart conditions, high blood pressure, or contemplating pregnancy, ever. And it means it.

One drop of this sauce in anything will have your eyes watering and your stomach curdling. Why it's in a bottle this big I'll never know, but this stuff is the real deal. I was foolish enough to have three drops in a shot of vodka one fateful night many moons ago, and I still tremble at the memory.

I can't rate it high enough, so five stars will have to do.

Flavor Name: Scorpion PepperSize: 5 Ounce
First, let me say that this is an excellent hot sauce. My favorite of Dave's so far.

That being said, I was confused at the heat level. While the maruga scorpion is usually hotter than the ghost pepper, I felt that my bottle of Dave's ghost pepper sauce was SIGNIFICANTLY hotter. Sometimes I feel like the original daves is hotter as well. I think the answer lies in the lack of extract. This is an all natural sauce. While not as hot, this is a much more accessible, and comes across as much more natural. It is very much a pepper puree.

Many of us have been spoiled by the outrageous levels of heat in the craze to find the hottest sauce. But these sauces were largely only possible through the generous addition of artificial heat. This is a back to basics, natural approach to hot sauce, and I for one feel they've done a damn good job. The 3rd plus sign on the bottle's heat indicator is slightly misleading though, at least relative to the other daves.

Don't expect this to be your hottest sauce. It probably isn't even the hottest that Dave has created.

But this is the one I'll be using from now on.
