Monday night I went to my local watering hole for wings and cold beer. We typically try one of every pepper I grow and I had only 2 peppers to try since I usually don't get a lot of peppers till early September. I brought a cumari and the bhutlah DM. The cumari was easy on all 3 of us with a hab like burn that only lasted a few minutes. The bhutlah was pretty small but turned nice and brown so I picked it and brought it with me. I cut it into 3 pieces and took a gulp of my beer before I was ready.I didn't feel the burn till 30 seconds later and it came with a vengeance. This started on the side of the mouth that I chewed and spread throughout the whole mouth. I have eaten 70 plus varieties including the reaper. This was the most brutal burn I have ever encountered and felt like I had eaten red hot coals from the grill. The burn continued for 20 plus minutes and gave my ears a ringing which has never happened before. This pepper was by far the hottest I have ever eaten and the longest continual burn with a gut bomb also. My one buddy was struggling so bad he left the bar for milk and pepto bismol and when he came back he said he's done for the summer after that. The owner said hopefully the rest won't be as bad as that one. lol
Long summer ahead and and 20 more types to try.
