The Habanero blend combines our base blend with Habanero peppers that have gone through my proprietary process. As with our original blend, the aroma will be the first thing you experience. Next will come the sweet smoky flavor of the original blend with the unique flavor characteristics of the Habanero. Finally, the heat will begin to set up, and intensify with each bite as your tongue and taste buds scream for more. So yes, the Habanero blend is hotter than our base blend.
