Background

The 7-Pot Douglah in an extremely hot 7-Pot pepper from the nation of Trinidad.  They pods have thin walls with a bumpy exterior. The ripe color is brown. There is some debate if this is the same as the 7-Pot Brown/Chocolate. It is the 3rd hottest pepper in the world, topping out at around 1.8 million scovilles. The pod I tried was grown and sent to me by Jesus Rosario, or Puerto Rico.

Notes

Pod weight: 8.1 grams
Amount eaten: 1/4 pod
Heat: 8
Flavor:  7 – Very mild, slightly floral, hardly any bitterness
Burn Profile: Mostly mouth, some back toward ears
Effects: Some initial stomach discomfort, but went away soon after.
Cap Cramps Potential: Got pretty severe cap cramps about 30 minutes after eating, and I had eaten prior to eating the pepper.

Review

It had a strong 7-Pot-ish aroma. There was a lot of placental tissue, which was tinted light brown. The interior walls of the pod were covered with a light beige lining. The 1/4 piece I tried tasted very mild, with an almost sweet flavor, and just subtlety floral. The heat slammed me right after swallowing. It brought a lot of salivation right away, and intense mouth burn. The burn crept back toward my Eustachian tubes.  Soon after swallowing, I felt a burn down through my chest, with some slight stomach discomfort. That went away quickly. About 30 minutes after the tasting I got pretty bad cap cramps that persisted off and off for a few hours.

Hi this is Peter Stanley, welcome to my channel

2
00:00:03,660 –> 00:00:05,980
Tonight I’m going to do a taste test

3
00:00:06,160 –> 00:00:07,360
on a 7-Pot Douglah

4
00:00:10,280 –> 00:00:11,240
it’s a very hot

5
00:00:12,220 –> 00:00:13,100
7-Pot strain

6
00:00:13,100 –> 00:00:14,700
that comes from Trindad

7
00:00:16,840 –> 00:00:18,200
it’s a very large pod

8
00:00:19,720 –> 00:00:20,680
you can see the

9
00:00:21,960 –> 00:00:23,880
It’s got a really pimply skin

10
00:00:25,260 –> 00:00:25,820
wrinkly

11
00:00:27,440 –> 00:00:30,320
I read that, see it’s kind four kind of lobes

12
00:00:30,920 –> 00:00:32,440
I read that it’s the 3rd

13
00:00:32,440 –> 00:00:34,800
It’s rated as the third hottest pepper in the world

14
00:00:34,800 –> 00:00:35,900
by the guiness book

15
00:00:35,900 –> 00:00:37,420
the Carolina Reaper being first

16
00:00:37,420 –> 00:00:39,160
and the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion

17
00:00:39,580 –> 00:00:40,860
in second, this one

18
00:00:41,760 –> 00:00:42,480
tops out at

19
00:00:42,860 –> 00:00:44,860
not all of them are this hot but

20
00:00:44,860 –> 00:00:48,160
this type tops out at around 1.8 million Scoville units

21
00:00:49,040 –> 00:00:50,540
definitely not going to do a whole pod

22
00:00:50,540 –> 00:00:52,340
test on this, probably a quarter pod

23
00:00:52,340 –> 00:00:54,900
but that should give me a good taste and

24
00:00:55,540 –> 00:00:56,660
feel for the heat

25
00:00:58,640 –> 00:00:59,140
also

26
00:00:59,420 –> 00:01:01,740
this was sent to me by Jesus Rosario

27
00:01:01,780 –> 00:01:03,060
he grew this as well

28
00:01:03,060 –> 00:01:04,300
he’s from Puerto Rico

29
00:01:04,440 –> 00:01:06,040
and he’s a master grower

30
00:01:07,520 –> 00:01:08,020
and

31
00:01:08,380 –> 00:01:11,180
he produces some really beautiful plants

32
00:01:11,640 –> 00:01:12,200
and pods

33
00:01:12,660 –> 00:01:13,860
you can find him on

34
00:01:13,860 –> 00:01:16,200
the Pepper Lovers community on Google plus

35
00:01:16,200 –> 00:01:17,780
and I’ll put a link to that

36
00:01:18,720 –> 00:01:20,000
in the description

37
00:01:21,500 –> 00:01:22,780
so lets go ahead and

38
00:01:23,460 –> 00:01:25,380
get this weighed and cut open

39
00:01:25,380 –> 00:01:27,620
and we’ll take a look at the inside

40
00:01:31,500 –> 00:01:32,140
8.1 grams

41
00:01:32,660 –> 00:01:34,820
really should be wearing gloves

42
00:01:35,960 –> 00:01:38,040
I’ll get this on my skin I’m sure

43
00:01:47,940 –> 00:01:48,440
wow

44
00:01:49,520 –> 00:01:50,560
it’s beautiful

45
00:01:52,280 –> 00:01:53,720
I can smell it already

46
00:01:59,580 –> 00:02:00,700
a lot of placenta

47
00:02:03,540 –> 00:02:04,500
real thin wall

48
00:02:04,500 –> 00:02:06,860
these super hots, the ones with the thin walls

49
00:02:08,220 –> 00:02:10,380
bumpy skin, and all the placenta

50
00:02:11,220 –> 00:02:12,500
usually really hot

51
00:02:13,280 –> 00:02:14,480
you kind of see the

52
00:02:14,840 –> 00:02:16,200
lining on the inside

53
00:02:18,940 –> 00:02:21,400
I don’t know if that’s an extension of the placenta

54
00:02:21,680 –> 00:02:23,200
or something else, but

55
00:02:24,600 –> 00:02:25,960
it looks pretty oily

56
00:02:33,580 –> 00:02:35,020
yeah, it’s beautiful

57
00:02:39,240 –> 00:02:40,840
it smells very 7-Pot ish

58
00:02:42,100 –> 00:02:43,060
really strong

59
00:02:45,700 –> 00:02:48,020
okay we’ll go ahead and take a slice

60
00:02:48,120 –> 00:02:49,480
and see how it tastes

61
00:02:49,700 –> 00:02:50,900
alright, I’m back

62
00:02:52,500 –> 00:02:53,000
took a

63
00:02:54,260 –> 00:02:55,940
half of that bigger piece

64
00:03:01,840 –> 00:03:03,680
a good quarter piece of that

65
00:03:05,320 –> 00:03:08,200
I did pick the seeds out, I’m gonna save them

66
00:03:08,320 –> 00:03:09,840
alright here goes, the

67
00:03:11,180 –> 00:03:12,140
7-Pot Douglah

68
00:03:49,960 –> 00:03:50,920
wow that’s hot

69
00:03:50,920 –> 00:03:54,120
it’s one of those, the heat doesn’t hit you until after you swallow it

70
00:03:55,720 –> 00:03:56,360
but it’s a

71
00:04:00,000 –> 00:04:00,500
wow

72
00:04:01,760 –> 00:04:05,680
the actually flavor of it when I was chewing was kind of mild

73
00:04:06,500 –> 00:04:07,780
a little bit floral

74
00:04:14,940 –> 00:04:16,940
a little more of an after taste

75
00:04:20,900 –> 00:04:22,340
really wasn’t bitter

76
00:04:22,860 –> 00:04:25,220
I could taste maybe a tiny bit of bitterness

77
00:04:26,260 –> 00:04:27,300
on my tongue but

78
00:04:29,280 –> 00:04:31,600
wow, it’s pretty searing right now

79
00:04:33,220 –> 00:04:33,880
tongue

80
00:04:33,880 –> 00:04:36,300
already going right back to the back of my throat

81
00:04:37,320 –> 00:04:38,680
feel it down in my gut

82
00:04:45,760 –> 00:04:46,560
wow it’s hot

83
00:04:48,040 –> 00:04:49,880
glad I only ate a quarter pod

84
00:04:52,480 –> 00:04:54,320
nose is running a little bit

85
00:04:55,760 –> 00:04:57,120
salivation started

86
00:04:59,340 –> 00:05:02,140
kind of feel the heat down through my chest

87
00:05:08,240 –> 00:05:10,400
yeah, that’s a really hot pepper

88
00:05:15,960 –> 00:05:17,720
I’ve seen mixed reviews on

89
00:05:17,720 –> 00:05:19,400
7-Pot Douglahs on flavor

90
00:05:19,520 –> 00:05:20,880
that it’s kind of bad

91
00:05:20,880 –> 00:05:23,360
this one really didn’t have a bad flavor to me

92
00:05:26,660 –> 00:05:27,860
the actual flavor

93
00:05:29,060 –> 00:05:30,820
was kind of mild chewing it

94
00:05:32,780 –> 00:05:35,660
it had more stuff going on after I swallowed

95
00:05:36,740 –> 00:05:39,760
it was mostly kind of a mild floral, slightly sweet

96
00:05:46,160 –> 00:05:46,660
wow

97
00:05:50,260 –> 00:05:52,420
feel like kind of the gas pressurizing

98
00:05:52,600 –> 00:05:54,120
pressure in my stomach

99
00:05:55,680 –> 00:05:56,180
from it

100
00:06:02,260 –> 00:06:03,460
yeah, it’s mostly

101
00:06:04,580 –> 00:06:07,160
kind of just sitting back in the back of throat now

102
00:06:07,620 –> 00:06:09,860
back toward the Eustachian tubes

103
00:06:12,400 –> 00:06:15,660
it’s one of those that kind of takes your breath when you swallow it

104
00:06:16,800 –> 00:06:18,960
takes a second to kind of recover

105
00:06:23,280 –> 00:06:25,940
I don’t think I could handle a whole pod of this

106
00:06:27,660 –> 00:06:29,580
I’d probably throw up if I did

107
00:06:31,980 –> 00:06:33,660
yeah, I think it’s peaked

108
00:06:33,880 –> 00:06:36,120
don’t think it’s gone down any but

109
00:06:43,740 –> 00:06:46,060
yeah it’d be a really strong powder

110
00:06:46,160 –> 00:06:47,520
or sauce ingredient

111
00:06:50,500 –> 00:06:51,000
wow

112
00:06:59,420 –> 00:06:59,920
yeah

113
00:07:06,080 –> 00:07:08,720
the back of my throat’s kind of drying up

114
00:07:12,820 –> 00:07:15,140
my stomach feels okay now pain wise

115
00:07:15,820 –> 00:07:18,940
I did eat beforehand which is always a good idea

116
00:07:21,000 –> 00:07:22,680
before I try an superhots

117
00:07:30,040 –> 00:07:33,260
yeah it’s mostly still just burning the very back of my throat

118
00:07:33,720 –> 00:07:34,920
little bit on my tongue

119
00:07:35,800 –> 00:07:37,640
feel a tiny bit light headed

120
00:07:40,720 –> 00:07:41,600
a quarter pod

121
00:07:42,520 –> 00:07:43,080
is not as

122
00:07:43,200 –> 00:07:43,760
you know

123
00:07:44,100 –> 00:07:46,500
you get a good sample of the whole pod

124
00:07:46,500 –> 00:07:49,360
if I’d eaten the whole pod it’d have been really

125
00:07:50,640 –> 00:07:52,400
intense heat and pain wise

126
00:08:00,480 –> 00:08:01,920
this year my pod tests

127
00:08:02,760 –> 00:08:04,520
I want to really go more for

128
00:08:05,600 –> 00:08:06,560
getting a good

129
00:08:06,560 –> 00:08:09,080
sample of the pepper and the flavor and heat

130
00:08:10,120 –> 00:08:10,680
without

131
00:08:10,680 –> 00:08:13,980
hurting myself really, I don’t want to make it more of a

132
00:08:14,260 –> 00:08:16,260
challenge or a stunt, but just

133
00:08:17,060 –> 00:08:19,700
get a good sample of the pepper and how it

134
00:08:20,100 –> 00:08:20,600
tastes

135
00:08:21,360 –> 00:08:22,720
and the effects of it

136
00:08:23,880 –> 00:08:24,380
so

137
00:08:24,380 –> 00:08:27,900
that’s what I’m going for this year with my pod reviews

138
00:08:29,180 –> 00:08:29,820
pod tests

139
00:08:31,260 –> 00:08:35,260
I think that’s about it, it’s starting to go down a little bit

140
00:08:37,300 –> 00:08:39,620
thank you Jesus for sending me that

141
00:08:40,680 –> 00:08:42,440
I really appreciate it and

142
00:08:44,020 –> 00:08:45,780
thank you all for watching

143
00:08:45,780 –> 00:08:47,040
hope you liked that
