I think that there is a large mass of people in the world that LOVE beef jerky! I know I do. Who does not love a snack that is made of meat, tasty, and healthy? Well coming out of Arizona is a company that is spreading throughout the US quickly and has that healthy tasty treat you desire… BEEF JERKY! SNATCH beef jerky is their name and jerky is their game. Their jerky is made from hormone free, California Grass Fed beef and has no MSG, and is low in sodium. The were thoughtful enough to send me some of there jerky to try out, and I would like to send a big thank you their way.
Whiskey Row.. Ingredients….Beef, Brown Sugar, Whiskey, Soy Sauce, Apple Cider Vinegar, Worcestershire Sauce, Worcestershire Sauce Base, Lemon Juice, Liquid Smoke, Spices
The bold sweet scent of the whiskey poured out of the bag, as the saltiness of the soy sauce and the twang of the Worcestershire lingered in the bag. Each strip of jerky was soft, tender and has a little chew.
I am a big whiskey fan, I mean who isn’t? With a name like Whiskey Row, I was anxious to try it. I placed the soft jerky in my mouth and began to chew. The first thing to hit my pallet was something like the taste of a cheap shot of whiskey. The whiskey was over powered by the brown sugar. The soy sauce and the Worcestershire combined with that, gives this jerky a strange after taste.
I was not happy with this one at all. The flavor was off and has a bad after taste. The jerky is way to soft. I might recommend to use a different whiskey (and a little more of it). I would use less brown sugar and possibly cut out the Worcestershire and or soy sauce.
Aroma & Texture
I was a little unsure of this one as I read the label. Beer + Jerky? I thought to myself. I’m always up for something new, so why not? As I opened the bag, the earthy hop aroma brewed up from the bag, along with a aroma I just could not place. I was not to pleased with the aroma, but I have had things before that didn’t smell too appealing yet they were great tasting. Peppered Ale was a little dry, but still soft.
Peppered Ale is probably the first one that’s a bit hard to explain, but I would say that it kind of taste like a stale beer with a touch of sweetness. The after taste is definitely not to my liking and the lime juice adds a tartness that I’m not very fond of.
Peppered Ale was probably my least favorite jerky I have tried yet. It may be that I’m not much of a beer man, or it may just be the idea of beer and sweetness that to me does not seem to mix well on a jerky. This may be for those that love beer and the flavor of it, but it is not for me.
