I'll bring a bottle of this, just to spice things up a bit:
That'll do.

This will ruin your day

The stuff I pictured is made from the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion pepper. It's the hottest* pepper known. For a reference point, notice the strength compared to the Jalapeno (which didn't even make this list) at a meager 1,000 - 4,000 Scoville units.


* In some tests the Carolina Reaper tests hotter, in others the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion comes out on top.

It's actually quite flavorful. Some super-hot sauces are gimmicks. They just add pure capsicum extract to boost the heat. I like the ones that are just the ground fruit of the pepper, vinegar, spices, etc.

I've had a winter skills course in the Cairngorms (Scottish Highlands) today - wind between 50 and 70 mph (80 - 112 km/h), gusts up to 80 mph (128 km/h), knee deep snow ... but at least it was sunny (mostly). I am currently sitting at my desk, pushing my feet and legs against the heater, and they still refuse to thaw ...

Who was Scoville and did he survive the testing needed to develop the Scoville Units measurements?

I'm in for guacamole, I'll bring tortilla chips, but hopefully the tequila is optional?

Sure. You can substitute Scotch.

Wooh, I'm in. As I'm right at the source - any particular preferences?

Yeah, sure. Trying to fool us about the weather, for those who are truly gullible. I'm not falling for it. Sun in Scotland?

Absolutely! Arbeg, Lagavulin, Laphroaig, or, if I'm paying for it, Glenn Moray.
(I like the taste of peat and seaweed)

I'm not very experienced in the field of Scotch, but Laphroaig is familiar. Good stuff, but not sure how it would suit guacamole and chips...

That's a good point. Might have to eliminate the guacamole and chips.
Are there any spirits that are unique or native to Norway?

Aquavit (aka troll urine) is, if not uniquely Norwegian, certainly what comes to mind. In addition, the area that I come from has a delightful drink that consists of pouring a cup of coffee, putting in a coin, and then topping off the cup with moonshine until you can see the coin in the bottom of the cup. We call it Karsk, and I have a theory that it's because that's the sound you make when you drink it.
