I was sent the Smoky Bourbon Table Blend seasoning. This blend begins with the sweet aroma of smoky morita chipotle peppers, adds depth and complexity with garlic and bourbon, and finishes up with a slow habanero-and-ghost burn that builds as long as you keep eating it. This goes well on eggs, burgers, grilled veggies… anything that can use a smoky heat. If you only try one variety, this is the one. But honestly, who wants to try just one?
My husband used this on some pork ribs. I am not a rib eater – my husband loved it. The kids however had all they could do to calm their mouths down from the heat. And he used very little. These are very powerful spices – do not underestimate their power!
Other flavors available are:
Garlic Grappa Table Blend – All the Tuscan herbs are here, alongside the warmth of a balsamic vinegar and Italian brandy blend. Replacing the standard red pepper with habanero chilies kicks the whole combination up a few notches. Try it on pasta or in a marinara sauce. 2 oz.
Citrus Rum Table Blend – Based on allspice, habanero, and rum, try it on any protein for that “what on earth is this?” reaction you’ve been looking for. Plus you can put it in cider and hot chocolate! 2 oz.
Scorpion Bourbon Table Blend – This is the hottest blend they make. They start with Smoky Bourbon and turn it up to 11 by using Trinidad Moruga Scorpions, one of the hottest peppers in the world at up to two million Scoville units (compare that to Jalapeños at 20,000). Peppers this hot are hard to find, but you won’t be needing much anyway. 2 oz.
