Tabasco is a baby on the Scoville scale, ranging between 2500-5000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU).  For reference, a green bell pepper features 0 SHU.  The hottest pepper in the world (the Carolina Reaper) carries 2 million SHU, and pure capsaicin is 16 million SHU.  But, that doesn't mean Tabasco isn't good.  It's marvellous on everything - from eggs to mild Bloody Mary's.  If you're not ready to call yourself a chili head; start here.
