Tabasco Scorpion Sauce is what Tabasco should be. Instantly recognizable as Tabasco but with actual heat. A little thicker and has guava in it (you can't tell just adds some body and sweetness). It's not hot but it's a real hot sauce as opposed to a pepper vinegar that regular tabasco is. 

Very highly recommended.  

I switched some time ago to a milder brand, Cholula, as it's no fun anymore waking up in the middle of the night with acid reflux. But I had some regular Tabasco on eggs in a restaurant recently, and it really did seem like a vinegar sauce. I didn't remember it tasting like that.

fermenting a pint of mixed peppers in brine - jalapeno's, scotch bonets, cubanelle etc etc in the basement.  Should be ready ~end of January.  

My go to is Cholula. I love the taste. 

I’ve enjoyed many others when *heat* was the goal. Dave’s hot sauces, for example. 

But really, Cholula just tastes good to me. 

Good to know about the tobasco scorpion, i've stuck mostly with their chipotle cuz its the only thing iv'e had that doesnt just taste like vinegar and black pepper as you mentioned.

I'm fermenting some thai red chiles right now for my hot sauce.

No vinegar,  just salt, onions, garlilc, chiles and sugar.  Some brewers yeast to  get it started.

There is a local eatery here that makes their own habanero sauce. Really good! It is pleasantly non-life threatening, more flavor than heat. My wife still thinks I'm crazy when I ask for it, though.

We probably also have some left over kosher for passover Schug lying around

Ok, you made me look. 

Frank's  (for hot wings)

Cholula  (for most everything else)

Sambal Oelek  (love this on grilled steak)

No bullshit. Are you suggesting I bring a bottle with me next week? Are you a hot sauce fiend who puts it on steak?

Susie's Hot Sauce - Original (from Antigua and one of the best on egg hot sauces I've ever had)

Cholula for all the previously stated reasons.
