Golden Blends Barbeque Sauce (3/5)

This label uses whisky-running as a metaphor to describe how this sauce has been marketed and sold for the past 20 years – secretly and silently through the hills of Appalachia.  It does make for a quite intriguing story…  and I really like the name of it too – the picture of a whiskey running car on the front nails the point home.

The sauce smells good with a pleasing blend of tomato spices and vinegar and not so tangy.  The flavor backs it up and the mix is good.     The flavor is smooth, smoky and sweet with a good amount of garlic and onion flavors.  There is not much new in terms of originality here but it works … I do wish it was a bit thicker though, as this tended to slide off the chicken when I grilled out with it.    Standard ingredients with HFCS but notably does not include artificial colors or preservatives AND includes horseradish.

  1. Thank you for the review. Just a heads up, we now use ketchup that is naturally sweetened. On a side note, the sauce ages well and thickens to a good texture around 6-8 months as the flavors meld together under the vacuum pressure in the jar.

    Thanks again!
