Product Review: Privateer Jerky
So here we are again – another meat snack review and I love it! There is a whole world of outstanding meat snacks from the UK now and I won’t be happy until I’ve worked my way through the lot!
Once again this is a very different meat snack to anything I’ve tried before. We’re now into the realms of premium jerky…
Appeals to: meat snackers, jerky fans and those with a sophisticated palate
The packaging is really simple. A well presented card detailing the premium branding sewn to a vacuum packed, meat pillow! And what more do you need?
£4.00 (40g bag) – now this is the most expensive of the meat snacks I reviewed but £4.00 for a premium snack doesn’t break the bank and you can tell from the packaging the look of it that you won’t be disappointed!
So what’s different about this meat snack? Well you get quality chunks of fantastic quality meat that has been cared for and smoked over Applewood to create a elegant undertone that permeates the whole snack.
Black Jack ‘The Mild One’
The smoked wood notes lay the foundations that are built on by a sweet black treacle which melts slowly into the soy flavours to leave a sweet, aniseed hint as the smoke creeps around your mouth. Enchanting!
Jolly Red ‘The Hot One’
This is fantastic! There is the familiar introduction of the smoke but then the sweet notes and the chilli heat begin to waltz with each other. The heat isn’t overpowering but it builds and sits on the tongue.
Verdict – in a word, exclusive! This is unlike any of the other meat snacks that I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing. It is more premium, cared for and more exclusive. It’s the difference between a cigar and a great cigar. There are layers of subtle flavours that gang up on your taste buds and ambush them in a symphony of premium tastes. Great work Privateer!
