This will, of course, be a highly contentious thread....everyone has their likes and dislikes....
I"m sure there are many like myself who go out and buy a hot sauce based on what's on the label and we've all been burned by the "this will make your tongue fall out" on the label of a mild sauce. As a hobby, I I try to buy hot sauces every place we travel...not the tourist ones, I find a supermarket and buy what the "natives" buy.
I'm looking for any sort of consensus on the top 5 sauces to buy to try differing flavor/spice profiles. I'd like to eliminate those that will cause a hospital visit...Personally, I like hot, but even I have a limit. I wonder if there are some standard categories. I'm open to suggestions. Certainly one would be "hot but fruity", another might be mustard based; another asian (but that gets sticky since tastes vary so much by country).
Let me be the first to eliminate Tabasco....I think almost everyone on the planet has tried it already. Again, from my perspective, it would be mildest sauce in my mix.
Which 5 should I purchase as a sample of "the best of the best"
