Hot Sauce Review: Secret Aardvark Habanero Hot Sauce

Updated: Dec 3, 2019

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Heat:🔥🔥🔥 Secret Aadvark, invented by the late Scott Moritz in Portland USA gets its name from a satirical letter written to a newspaper by its creator when he was pretending to be a gang. The site spins a heartwarming tale but let's see how the sauce represents that!

_ 👁 I've seen Secret Aadvark around a lot and I really don't like the look of it. The bottle makes it look like those cheap things you get at a greasy spoon here and the UK and the logo clashes with its unforgiving primary colours. Let's hope the sauce puts a better foot forward. _ 👃 It smells salty and sweet with a really healthy dose of lovely fresh chillies. The vinegar doesn't seem too strong so that bodes well for the taste. _ 👅 It starts savoury, salty and sweet with a prominent touch of garlic. It's flirting with being too salty but then moves nicely into a lovely earthy chilli flavour. Not too sour either it finishes with a blend of spices that I can't quite pinpoint but they remind me of a wing seasoning. The heat is slow building but when it arrives it's quite intense and lingers on the tongue making it tingle. This is a really tasty and interesting sauce. _ 👬 As suggested this would go perfectly with wings due to the interesting array of herbs and spices present. Failing that give it a go with some falafel or veggie kebab. _ 🍕 It's a nice thick consistency that's been created naturally without the use of thickeners. Although ugly the bottle does lend itself to an enjoyably squeezey serving experience. Masterful.
