Nose: Good crivvens, this stuff smells like pure evil, like the very blood of Satan himself. Such a pungent nose of chilli, it makes your eyes water just sniffing it.
Palate: Oh, actually, this stuff’s not so bad… Wait a second… What’s that… A burning sensation… Oh dear please no...

I love this vodka. I'm half way my second bottle, though the first one went somehow faster after a couple of parties with people who claimed to like extremely hot food. Now they know MY definition of hot *LOL*
As can be read in most of the reviews and on the bottle itself: DON'T DRINK AS A SHOT! Your mouth and the rest of your digestive system (including the end part) will not like you for it. You do, however, get the full taste. This is the somewhat bitter taste of Naga chillies alright.
I prefer to drink it mixed with apple juice. This brings out the Naga flavour quite a bit and is quite nice to drink, as long as you don't use too much of this stuff. This vodka is also my 'secret' ingredient when I want to spice up a pot of chili con carne or a really spicy pasta sauce. If you let it boil for a bit, the alcohol evaporates but the heat and the taste of the Naga chillies stay. Great if you're a chilly-head like me :)

I bought this for a cricket team initiation drink... I was going to get the 250,000 scoville, but didn't want to ruin anyones night. As it turns out, this is delicious. Yes, it is hot, but nothing that is going to leave lasting damage. We all had multiple shots of it, and even some in tomato juice, which was excellent. I totally recommend it!

I took an adequate double measure in one NYE. Let's just say I didn't drink anything else except milk for an hour afterwards
1st January 2014
I received my bottle today, i was so afraid to try it after reading all the comments, but when i did, i was dissapointed. I'm not that big of a chili head, but this thing is not burning at all. Yeah, I felt some little burning but nothing like I was expecting. Maybe my bottle was faulty, I dunno. I was hoping to experience that burning hell....
11th December 2013
I tried a full shotglass of this, and i must say that it's not as hot as i thought it would be. Sure, it's hot, but only after swallowing the second shot after keeping it in my mouth for about 20 seconds, my eyes started to water and my nose started running slightly.
I also tried it in several cocktails, and liked it. If you wonder what anything would taste like when spicy, just add this.
21st May 2013
the worse drink of my life...no more...I tried a small coffee spoon and had to drink a pint of milk on it...
10th May 2013
I just took a very little nip of this stuff...
All right, it's hot. But I wouldn't call it devil's blood...
A faint vodka taste remains in between the pepper, which I like.
Even though, shots are really to be discouraged!!
7th February 2013
So I had a shot as a dare at work. Being the only girl, I wasn't gonna back down and be the chicken. So I downed the shot. Oh my god. My mouth was nothing compared to my stomach. Note to drinkers: do NOT have this on an empty stomach. and be prepared for some serious pain, because when it burns, it BURNS.
3rd February 2013
Last night I drank a shot of NCV, it was really painful! Been there, done that. Never again!!!
26th December 2012
Took it round to the boys to see who couldn't handle it..... had one in the corner, curled up with a 4 pint bottle of milk! Lethal....but good
2nd December 2012
This is so hot on its own, I was too scared to even take a sip. 1 small drop on my finger was hot enough. However if you put a measured single shot in a long glass with Tomato Juice, Salt & Pepper it makes the perfect Bloody Mary and it does still have a brilliant kick to it. (I am a lover of spicy food as well).
10th November 2012
100,000 is indeed hot, but there are peppers out there in the mid 2million range now. Time to ramp this stuff up to get on the level of the newest worlds hottest as the Naga Viper is far far behind the curve now. But still a 5* drink for sure.
21st October 2012
Nagar viper as far as I know are the hottest chillies in the world.... are they grown in india or some far flung place in the world.... no my friends ENGLAND is the place and how proud am I to say that , GET IN THERE !!!
14th October 2012
My nephew bought a shot in an Indian restaurant last night and bought it me in the pub for dinner... Ho Ho this was hot... 3 mates also tried it (all of us late 50's early 60's) this is good stuff and hot as hell !!!
I dunno what the other reviewers were drinking, but this stuff has virtually no flavor - generic alcohol bite followed by alot of heat. Like a dummy, I even swished it around my mouth a few times looking for some kind of flavor. This was followed by rapidly consuming several ice cold (yet, not cold enough) beer chasers, much panting and mouthbreathing interspersed with rolling around on the floor and mopping the sweat off my forehead.
I can't call this "good". Can't even comment about it's "quality". It does deliver 100%, 5/5 Stars, 2 thumbsup exactly what it's advertised as. I'm tempted to get the 250,000 version to serve to those that've tried the 100,000 - how much hotter can it be, right? Right?!?
2nd October 2012
Some things should be left well alone and admired from a distance. This bottle has a great label and it looks very cool on the shelf. Unfortunately, I opened it and tasted it...unleashing hell. If, like Gene Simmons of Kiss, you wish to breathe fire and drool blood, buy this!
18th September 2012
i got it for my birthsday in may, 5 guys took one shot, 2 of them almost instandly puked, it was madness the burning sensation is handable but the stomach dont take to kindly to it....not mine at least
then 3 months later, i still had LOTS of this stuff left
so i brought it to a party.
..lets just say...i had a fun night
(no one got sick or angry, but only 1 came back asking for secounds)
9th September 2012
I was foolish enough to think that the warnings attached to this were just a publicity stunt and tried a sample in Selfridges, what an error. Burning pain and couldn't taste anything for the rest of the day. I like a hot curry, but this simply blew me away. It's not a drink, it's just painful.
27th August 2012
też lubię wyzwania, lubię ostrą kuchnię więc może i ostra wódka mi podejdzie. Tydzień czasu na realizację zamówienia, po konsumpcji opiszę wrażenia :D
14th August 2012
Me and the wife went to Bath recently and found this in a pub there! We had it every night of the 3 that we spent there to the shock of the owners! We love it! It's really hot and the heat lasts too and the taste of chilli is very impressive! Definately ordering some soon! Best chilli spirit I've tried by far!
7th August 2012
A friend of mine dared me to drink it, so I did. It's totally nuts, seriously hot and quite tasty. I'll definitely be drinking some more.
5th August 2012
The packaging, name and ingredients should give this away. It should come as no surprise that this drink is not for wimps.
As a self-professed chilli fiend, I make a point of consuming anything supposedly "hot" when I get the chance. This is one of the few things which truly lives up to the hype. It's not completely intolerable to those with well-developed pain/chilli thresholds, but it certainly is challenging and very hot. Their choice of naga is great - there's this wonderful fruity overtone to it, before the searing heat kicks in.
We shall almost certainly be using this as a punishment shot in my bar. I can guarantee nobody will want to turn up late then.
30th July 2012
Friend of mine ordered a bottle and it obiviously had to be tested. 1st reaction "not that bad", then it hits your stomach and then ur screwd. 5mins of incapacitation. The taste is obiviously nothing worth mentioning but the effect ... nothing I can describe. Wouldn't recommend this to anyone, but in the end it was what it was said to be. Since depending on your view this is either 0 or 10 stars I just give it a random 5. But it really is either-or.
28th July 2012
Never try this in a public situation. Your eyes will water you'll start to hic up, your nose will run. The lovely sales babe warned me against it but being a chilli head I ignored her advise. A schoolboy error indeed. This stuff is rude and deserves respect.
4th July 2012
Drank it as a shot. DONT! Great flavor, not hot in mouth at all really....but will absolutely paralyze your entire mid section. I was sweating for at least 30 minutes. After that I was fine. All in all a good experience but I don't recommend doing it as a shot.
27th June 2012
Friend and I did this as a shooter. Just...don't. Believe everyone saying it's as hot as a million suns. We were paralysed for a good ten minutes. Not even Baileys made the fire go away. Five stars for punch and surprise - and knowing what to order for unsuspecting friends in the future...
5th June 2012
I bought that vodka and I`m gonna say is unbelivable strong, extremly hot, impossible to drink that bootle by your self (5 shots which I did ends that I`ve suffered 2 days and all my fleshs was burn). I shared with friends(amazing fun) everyone want to try it and show you how hard is he - and after few second they running to tap drink gallooons of water. This vodka is not for drinking is for fun or drinks :)
4th June 2012
Some of my buddies and I tried this drink, and for me personally I think I handled it pretty well seeing that I love hot and spicy foods, HOWEVER! this is by far the hottest thing I ever had, you feel the wrath of what this drink has to offer instantly. As far as my buddies goes....words can't explain their reactions...priceless.
21st May 2012
Normally with even very hot hot sauce, even the Jolokia stuff, there's a brief period where you kinda know it's hot, but then it just keeps getting far worse over a minute or two. Not with this stuff.
The alcohol must create some type of electrical conduit between the pepper and anything in your mouth that's wet, which would be everything. The microsecond this hits your tongue you know EXACTLY what's going on. Then a few seconds while the vapor fills your noise.. "Is this really happening this fast?" followed by "wow, this is really really really hot... ".
30th April 2012
was brought this as a gift by my cousin after saying id drink that after seeing phillip scofield try it on this morning so me being me who likes hot food fillled a shot glass n downed it in one at first it was fine then coudnt breath had my mouth under the cold tap drinking milk my cousin said its the best money he has every spend
12th April 2012
Ahh man. This stuff is ridiculous. One of my friends decided to have me take a shot one night at the bar. Just told me it was vodka. Turns out its this stuff! I thought I was going to kill him. Literally.
8th April 2012
Hotter than the sun
29th March 2012
It is hot, very hot. But the disappointment is that it is so very, very bitter. A good try but not a success sadly.
20th March 2012
Heat is interesting, if indeed fairly extreme as advertised. But I found the lingering bitterness very unpalatable. Less a drink in any form, more of a weapon or punishment for ex friends. Sorry guys, not a success!
15th March 2012
this stuff is wonderful. wonderful in a really quite painful yet entertaining way which is guaranteed to liven up your evening. if your idea of livening something up is to watch grown men and women cry pathetically that is. making my mouth water just thinking about it. maybe just one more bloody mary, then...
1st March 2012
It is hard to taste any alcohol in it as instantly you get feeling like someone just set your mouth in FIRE! And that was just little sip...I do not think that is safe to your life to have whole shot at once...but still I think I will challenge my friends: whoever drinks whole shot and keeps straight face wins £20. Never seen\tasted anything like this...it is just...ohh...pfff...eee...my mind still did not recover after trying it :):) If you like challenges and you are brave enough go for it!!!!
I don't know who jingo is, but damn, this is hot vodka. Whoever this jingo guy that is, tell him to be more careful when he's packing his vodka barrels. Don't let peppers fall in them. Spicy! Buy Jingo!
28th February 2012
Tried this last night and its is really quite hot. I like my chilli's and this does not disappoint. The first sip is ok and you think 'mmm, not too bad' but then the heat builds and builds with each sip until your mouth is on fire. However, this is a great experience and if you like chilli try it, its fun!!
my bottle arrived today, and it was the first delivery I had ever been uncomfortable about opening - knowing that I would have to try it. I decided to pour a mere millimeter into a shot glass (because I'm brave like that) and took a sip. I was expecting it to taste more peppery, like a background flavor of a bell pepper - but instead all i got was the flavour of vodka enitially and then some reasonable warmth. I thought it wasn't that bad so decided to finish the rest in the glass....but it was that bad! A mouthful of milk and a headful of regret later, and I sit at my computer with a tongue that hates me! Now i know what to expect, I will definitely use this product in some drinks recipes. To honestly sum up this product - f*****g hot!!!!!
22nd February 2012
I bought this for my husband as a gift. Many's the time he's handed me a forkfull of curry saying "Can you taste that and see if it's hot because it doesn't seem hot to me?", only for me to spend the next 20 minutes swearing and gargling milk. I don't fall for that any more. He took one teeny tiny sip of this, went red, sweated a lot and said "By jingo - that's hot!". Apparently it makes a fantastic bloody mary...I will never be brave enough to find out. Well done MofM for creating something my husband actually finds challenging.
28th January 2012
Ok, I like my hot food (vindaloo, phall etc), so I must admit that I did scoff a bit at the description above.
But.....By Jingo: This stuff is HOT. It's DEFINITELY NOT a shooter or the basis of drinking games, but as a sipper it gives me just the right amount of heat (phall-stylie). I've not tried yet, but I bet that this makes a bloody brilliant Bloody Mary.
Enjoy - with extreme caution!
26th January 2012
Sounds like a trip on the Event Horizon would be preferable...
Go on then, I like a challenge.
