reviews, Tabasco Family Reserve

I grew up on regular Tabasco. Spike insisted we always had it.

I knew they’d branched out over the years but only recently tried a few of the newer styles.

The Family Reserve, however, I will go so far as to say that I would NEVER pay $30 for a bottle of Tabasco. I don’t care if the peppers are watered by the tears of virgins.

That said, I got this bottle free.

Lily Says: It is noticeably tastier.

And I won’t purchase it for the Cheap Bastard that I am but if I receive it free again, I will happily reach for it over regular.

If you have $30 to spend on good pepper sauce, I hope you like it as much as I do!

I am not a great connoisseur of pepper sauces, as stated. I spend my first 40 years using the one. So take that for a grain of salt, some pepper and vinaigre. –HAR Your pepper sauce ingredients. It’s all about the quality of the pepper!

  1. Texas Pete is big around here, as it is made in Winston-Salem, which is 25 miles from where I live. I’ve not idea how it stands up to Tobasco since, being the wimp I am, have never had any hot pepper sauce.


    • Tabasco isn’t more popular here (that I know of) from whoever else. I just know what we had:)

      They have vastly less hot sauces in their line now but if you don’t like anything like that, kinda pointless to try!


  2. I am a big fan of Texas Pete, having gotten a taste for it when I lived in North Carolina, too. It’s perfect on NC barbecue. Cholula is very popular here in SoCal, but we also have a bottle of Tabasco too. They’re all different in flavor and viscosity and so go better/worse with a given dish.

    That said, I don’t think I could ever shell out $30 for a hot sauce. Virgin tears or no.


    • I’ve done reviews comparing their green and chipotle versions but they also make a few more, the only other of which I tried was Buffalo and it was tasty.

      I truly wouldn’t turn my nose up at others but have zero interest in trying. Regular Tabasco is the Reed Standard!


I like it when you talk to me
