Cayenne peppers are used to provide smoothness, a mellow red jalapeño is used to keep it a little less hot, and a small amount of the traditional oak-aged tabasco pepper keeps the flavor consistent with the Tabasco brand. To top it off, a healthy amount of garlic provides some added flavor.
The Tabasco Garlic Pepper sauce is gets a Scoville Unit Rating of 1200 - 1800, which means it's zesty with a medium heat level. This makes it hotter than the Tabasco Green Pepper sauce, but milder than the original Tabasco sauce. It is recommended that this can be served as you would original Tabasco on Mexican cuisine, pizza, and eggs, but, because of the garlic, it is an even better fit in Italian dishes. Available in 2 oz (59 mL), 5 oz (148 mL) and 1 gallon (3.8 L) sizes for approximately $1.10, $2.65, and $36.95 respectively.
The McIlhenny Company is based out of Avery Island, Louisiana and produces the world's most famous hot sauce: Tabasco. It is made from tabasco peppers largely grown in the Avery Island area, not, as often thought, in Tabasco, Mexico. The tabasco peppers are aged for three years in white oak barrels before being included in McIlhenny's line of hot sauces and condiments.
