Hunters Cheeky Chilli Beef Biltong

The biltong has a really nice fragrance of herbs, and is well balanced with both chilli and black pepper. The meat has a pleasing chew, without being over cured, and the product has a lightness you wouldn’t usually associate with biltong. The quality of the meat really shines through.

Good chunks of meat, well prepared and it’s so good to have a biltong that is not cruel to the teeth and drier than an elephant’s foot. Pleasantly chewy, juicy, meaty, it is perhaps a little on the sweet side but the muted back notes of the spices in no way impede the flavour of the beef.

We liked the tenderness of this beef biltong and we found the flavour very moreish. We could detect both chilli and crushed black pepper and the spice combination had a compelling complexity.

Hunter’s Biltong Original Beer Sticks / Droewors

An even, well sized sausage, with a good fat content giving the meat a nice amount of moistness. The clove flavour is fairly prominent, but works well and in balance with the beef flavours.

These look like lovely sticks of dried meat with a lovely basil and beef aroma. The flavour packs a real beefy punch and has a lovely mouthfeel. It’s an excellently flavoured aromatic version of a droewors. Delicious!

Hunters Peppered Beef Biltong

This biltong has a pleasant aroma with plenty of spice and black pepper. The meat is good quality, with a great texture that is chewy without being tough, and it has retained its moisture. The black pepper is well judged, with an intensity that complements the flavour of the meat without being overpowering or overwhelming.

Delicate, slim slices of biltong with an enticingly beefy aroma. The chew is gentle, releasing some juiciness, the umami persists throughout, the spiciness is apt. Well made and enjoyable.

Hunters Teriyaki Beef Biltong

Hunters Teriyaki Beef Biltong

Good sized pieces which are tender and succulent – juicy and full of flavour. Well butchered and prepared. The meat is also void of sinew and hard fat – so the chew was very pleasant. The meat flavour is good – there is a faint background note of offal on some pieces but this isn’t unpleasant. This is a delicious biltong.

Hunters Peppered Beef Jerky

A really inviting aroma of the sweet, smokey beef. The texture has a good chew. The flavours are well-balanced, with a lovely hit of the black pepper, sweet, grassy beef and sweet hickory smoke. A really well-executed product and a very tasty result.

We enjoyed the sweet hickory smoke aroma of this beef jerky, which transferred across to the taste, balanced out with hits of black-peppery heat. The texture was traditionally chewy but also quite tender.

Hunter’s Summer BBQ Beef Jerky

This was very satisfying and we particularly appreciated the fact that the meat had good moisture. Many examples err on the dry side.

A truly apt description – we loved the acidity here, balancing the pleasing level of oak smoke and ensuring continuity of flavour through the chew. A clever product, well pitched, enjoyable and moreish.
