Welcome back, everyone! This week, I’d like to return to one of our old favourite suppliers, the Chilli Alchemist. Because they, in turn, have returned one of my old favourite items – The 💀Philosopher’s Dew!
Now known simply as their “Dew” and focussing rather more heavily on its citrus content, so I’m eager to see just how much it’s changed. But, same sauce or not, it won’t be alone in today’s review.
Russell, the current company owner, has added another new product to the range, alongside it. And this one appears to be all his own:
A “Gold” sauce which, rather than taking after the old 💀Aurum, promises to be a fruity, pineapple sriracha. Much like the redone Dorset Punch.
Let’s take a closer look at the pair, shall we?
Howdy, peeps, it’s recipe day again and, while I don’t plan on doing this every week, I do have another mini one for you today. One that makes use of Mad Dog’s 25th Anniversary Gold Edition.
Why? Because something has to.
It’s a tasty sauce. A great blend of mellowed out reapers, scorpions and ghosts that even tastes rather mexican. It’s gentle on the palate but not even remotely gentle on the rest of the body. A brutal assault on one’s sense of heat at a freakin’ crazy
A heat that renders it inedible for all but the most hardcore of chilli lovers and was enough to send me and my friends loopy 📽️ with a single mozzarella stick 📽️.
So it should come as no surprise that I’ve barely touched my bottle since. I just don’t want that kind of mouth-hurting, mind-destroying challenge spice very often and my video reviews more than satiate any such need that I might have.
It is, therefore, about time I toned it down a bit. Made a secondary sauce out of it that’s only super hot, not beyond nature. Something that at least the crazy people, like me, might enjoy.
Here it is, my Mad Dog burger topper recipe.
Alright, everyone, if you’ve been paying attention to my twitter account (@spicefreakblog) then you might already know that I recently got another bottle free from The Chilli Alchemist.
This time, however, it’s not a review sample. Their latest gift came with any purchase at Reading Chilli Fest because the product in question has been discontinued. They are nolonger making their Elixir Orientem.
So, while I have been enjoying that sauce on my macaroni cheese, it’s not what I’m here to talk to you about today. No, today’s product is the new one that takes its place:
Their mango and aji amarillo chilli sauce, quite simply named “Aurum” after its golden colour.
