Hot enough, but not painful. Call it medium. And very, very flavorful. The perfect combination of that uniquely intense Carolina Reaper heat and a fusion of delicious ingredients like succulent tomatoes, fresh garlic, piquant sweet onions, fruit juices, and a select blend of herbs and spices. Use this sauce on anything that needs some really flavorful, medium fiery heat. It's perfect on meats, fish, chicken, grilled anything ... makes a wicked bloody Mary and a splendidly potent barbecue sauce.
