Melinda’s Reserve is now my favorite sauce. The flavor, wow they did a great job there! It is hot enough to wake you up and linger around for 5-10 minutes, but certainly not painful. The flavor it brings to breakfasts, lunches, and dinners is amazing. I highly recommend this!
This is a really great sauce. Very balanced. It’s hard to find a habanero sauce that isn’t all fruity or all heat. The flavor with this one is spot-on.

This sauce is amazing, very flavorful AND hot. Very good balance of flavors. I will be very very sad when this goes away. This is my second favorite hot sauce (second only to the savina!)

I really do love this sauce and use it every day on eggs, meat, salads–in fact, I’m inclined to put it on most things that I eat. It’s my go-to sauce of choice, with great flavor and a pleasant heat that I really enjoy.
I love a wide variety of hot sauces from many different sauce-makers and tend to enjoy those that are pretty hot, but not crazy hot–I’m not a real “chili head” or anything. And neither is my brother or his wife and kids–but they all like this and the other Melinda’s sauces that I’ve given them, and they have no complaints about the heat.
Been using this sauce and buying it by the case for a long time now, and just placed an order for two more cases–so thanks for a great hot sauce, guys! You keep makin’ it, and I’ll keep buyin’ it!

4-5 tsp Melinda’s Reserve is perfection simmered into a double batch of homemade chili. XXXX is also a top notch habanero contender when adding a couple drops in mild salsas.
no overstatements here; I agree “best habanero peppers on the planet” are in this sauce…

I’ve been using Melinda’s for 30 years. This Reserve is by far my favorite. I like sauce that is hot, but not so hot that you get all heat and no flavor. This is a perfect balance of both. Give me a plate of tacos and a bottle of Melinda’s XXXXtra Reserve and I’m a happy man!

This and Red Savina are my two favorite sauces. Bursting with flavor and balanced with good but not face burning heat! Absolutely all purpose perfection from Melinda
