Is the yellow one made with the spicier chile we refer to in the West as habanero?

 

The ingredients list doesn't specify which variety of chilli it is - in any of the five languages on the bottle. Most just say 'chillies'. The Chinese says 'yellow chillies'.

 

It is this brand, available from Amazon in the US.

To my palate, it isn't particularly hot (I don't know what your reference point is when describing a chilli as 'spicier') and somewhat sweet and sour, but not excessively sweet as so many can be. Both the bottle and the Amazon page says it is 100% chilli, which is nonsense. It also contains sugar, vinegar, salt and garlic as is made clear in the ingredients lists. The Thai says it is 53% chilli.
