Once again Hot Ones has rewarded us with a brand new Dab Hot Sauce. This sauce was known as Apollo’s last bone because he used all the new peppers.
Apollo Pepper is a new variety of illusory and mysterious pepper that, as you may have guessed, is cultivated by Smokin’ Ed Currie. He participated in the recent sauces The Last Dab and is as well known as the paprika community. Eventually he developed the Carolina Reaper, the hottest (officially recognized) chili pepper in the world.
He also created Pepper X, the main source of heat for the previous spicy sauce Last Dab Triple X. It was very hot, but not as angry as the original edition of Reaper.

Note the taste of Apollo:
Sean Evans commented that at the event they thought Apollo might be too sharp for celebrities to challenge the Hot Ones. Of course we were very happy to taste the sauce as soon as possible.
We tasted the sauce a few hours after we arrived and, well, we had some thoughts…
It’s hot: 5/5 – Probably one of the hottest non-extracted sauces.
The taste: 3/5 – No hammer, only pepper and vinegar.
Value: 2/5 is an exclusive pepper, but the price is not included.
Total rating: 3/5 – ideal for children’s heads, not for taste seekers.
Rating and perfume of the last double of Apollo
First of all, the Apollo Last Dab is very different from the previous Last Dab sauce. This spicy sauce consists of only 2 main ingredients, pepper and vinegar. Technically there are 4 ingredients, but 3 of them are derived from Apollo peppers.
The result is a relatively flat smell with explosive heat and not much more. This is not necessarily a bad thing, because some people use hot sauce to spice up their food without changing its taste. However, my recommendation to them – to grow fresh pepper and use it instead – is much more profitable.
- Savari pepper
- Super pungent taste, not too floral.
How to use it…
- Do something unbearably sharp.
- Fuck your friends.
The sauce tastes really interesting. It has a spicy smell with a slight hint of root, almost like a spicy vegetable dish. Given the limited number of ingredients, it can only be attributed to Apollo peppers.
The Apollo paprika distillate indicated in the ingredients is produced by CO2 extraction. This process is comparable to the production of high quality essential oils. However, we are not sure if this can be considered an excerpt (please let us know if you know).
If you want a hot and spicy pepper sauce that doesn’t spoil the vegetables and herbs, this might be the right choice. As long as you find your food incredibly spicy.
More information about Apollo Pepper
Since Smoking Ed is constantly experimenting with new pepper crosses, it is only natural that the Apollo pepper originated from this practice.
The Apollo pepper would be the result of a cross between the Carolina Reaper and Pepper X plants.
Both species are very hot, although no one has ever tasted raw X-pepper.
The name probably comes from the Greek god Apollo, known as the god of sun and light. The sun’s hot, the peppers are hot, that’s it. It may also be relevant to NASA’s Apollo missions. This sauce could be secret rocket science, who knows.
Last key Apollo Scoville note
If you see Caroline Reaper and X Pepper as Apollo’s parents, this sauce is incredibly hot. However, Scoville’s exact score is still TBA. In the meantime, we will do our best, based on previous evaluations of the Scoville Last Dab and the origin of the Apollo pepper. Read updates here as we learn more from official sources.
Simply put: The valuation of Last Dab Apollo is expected to be 2.5 million + SHU, although the official valuation has not yet been announced. After the tasting, Scoville’s evaluation of this estate wouldn’t surprise me. However, both agreed that the constrictor sauce made from slabs is hotter.
Let’s see where the other super hot sauces on the Scoville dish are.
Apollo Last date sequence
Like the old Last Dabs, Apollo is big and stocky. Fresh pepper is almost chewy and vinegar has a relatively low concentration. This means that the sauce is poured slowly, as one would like with such firepower.
The colour is dark red, which indicates that the Apollo pepper may be darker in colour than the original harvester. Some types of peppers are bright red, while others can have a deeper burgundy colour when fully ripe. Time will tell!
Where to buy the newest Dub Apollo?
The latest edition of Dab Apollo is available exclusively from Heatonist, at the current price of US$22 (plus shipping costs). This is the most expensive Last Dab so far, although for most people the bottle should last a long, long time.
It would be a great gift for anyone you know who loves super hot food. The price is reasonable considering the fact that each bottle probably needs a few dozen peppers. Moreover, the pepper itself is exclusive to Smokin’ Ed.
All in all, we were blown away by the heat from the Apollo. The sauce is short-lived due to its extreme price and relatively standardized taste. It’s more of a party than a good hot sauce. I will continue to use the older varieties of Last Dab for their more interesting taste.
