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.
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.
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.

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.
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.

Not quite as hot as I expected but it has a pretty good after burn. The flavor is very nice.Published 6 days ago by MAC
So freaking hot, a couple dabs has me breaking out in sweats, running nose, watery eyes. Heat euphoria sets in shortly after. Takes awhile to get back to "normal".Published 6 days ago by Tara Hannan

A nicely fruity superhot sauce. The fruitiness isn't low and warming, like a mango or even a peach. It's even above a high-ish pineapple taste. Read morePublished 24 days ago by Dawk
I got these for a friend who likes spicy foods. I knew I couldn't just get some ordinary hot sauce and so based off the reviews, ordered a bottle of this. Read morePublished 26 days ago by arizonahd
Great sauce but not nearly as hot as I was made to believe it was. I bought CaJohns Fatalii Fire in the same order and the fatalii sauce was MUCH hotter than this sauce. Read morePublished 28 days ago by Jeffrey Clorley
