I really enjoyed it. I think the wife and I will smash through this bottle pretty quick. The only reason I gave the aroma a lower score was because the flavor profile didn't match the nose. Not necessarily a bad thing but the flavor is really on point and when it hits the nose, it's mostly tomato. Either way, great sauce and well made for sure!Crispee-FL said:Wow thanks Ed!
I'm still playing around with different ideas on how to score things. It's like trying to explain the color blue to a blind person. Been doing a lot of research on how other food competitions are judged and none of the criteria really applies to hot sauce all the well.. I'll be trying different things. Still working on it.The Hot Pepper said:I don't mind an aroma description but I feel it doesn't need a score. I mean, if it smells like nothing is that 0? Or 10? Or 5 in the middle? lol. If it smells like vinegar is it low? But it's Louisiana sauce? Etc.
Same with consistency. Some are supposed to be thick or thin so I like an analysis but not a score. (not that you did )

Once again thank you all so much for the encouragement, it means a lot coming from this community.Edmick said:The combination with the pasta was kinda like I expected. It paired very well but to be honest, it's not surprising. This sauce (in my opinion) can cross boarders pretty easily. I can see myself using it in a wide variety of cultural dishes. My wife really enjoyed it too.
