Comments from the Great Taste Judges:
"This is a stunning product. The colour is a bright vermilion and there is instant impact of heady notes of smoke. Piquant, robust, fiery, this is one amazing paprika. The taste is so fresh even after smoking and the vibrancy of the peppers comes through onto the palate with a fire cracking intensity. It's not often you come across paprika with this much attitude. Wonderful stuff."
