Taste-Test Video: Blair’s “Ultra Death” Chili Sauce

Blair’s “Ultra Death” Sauce is a chili sauce with a Scoville rating of 1,100,000 heat units — that’s 900 times hotter than a jalapeno chili. In the following video, we taste-test this bottled magma with Jolokia Pepper extreme-heat potato chips. (Darwin Awards, here we come!)

We’ve scarfed some pretty extreme things here at Lifehacker. Recent examples notable for their horror include the gut-churning bacon milkshake, most of the Takeaway Truth series and the distressingly chewy human placenta pizza.

But when it comes to sheer taste bud annihilation, Blair’s “Ultra Death” Chili Sauce arguably tops the lot.

As its name implies, Blair’s “Ultra Death” Sauce isn’t suitable for people with sensitive palates. It’s not really suitable for hardcore chili-lovers either. The label on the bottle is covered with multiple warnings (not to mention a miniaturised skull) and includes the caveat: “not to be consumed without dilution”.

The ingredients of this hellish concoction are as follows:

Red Habanero Pods, Cayenne Chilies, White Vinegar, Natural Pepper Flavor, Tomato Puree, Pirri-pirri Chilies, Lime Juice, Salt, & Spices with added Naga Jolokia peppers.

Just opening the bottle caused a powerful reaction in the room. Indeed, it kind of made my nostrils and anus burn before I event tasted it (although the latter may have been unrelated). In the words of Kotaku editor Mark Serrels: “It smells like something you use to kill cockroaches with.” And that was before the taste-test.

Check out the video for a taste of what dining in hell feels like.

We can confidently say that this product should not be used as a dipping sauce by anyone. If you’re feeling particularly suicidal though, you can order a bottle for yourself at blairshotsauce.com.
