The chorizo sausage ships in a cardboard carton. It is vacuum-packed (see picture).
Average rating: 3.0 (see how the average rating is calculated)
When the chorizo arrived it was soft to the touch on the outside so it was necessary to hang the chorizo in the kitchen without the packaging for a week or two to allow the product to become hard/solid to the touch this allowed for better slicing.
When i opened the chorizo it released the the familiar red oil containing the robust taste and strong flavor, the chorizo is delicious with bread on the side and on with a full bodied red wine. This chorizo is a connoisseurs choice and may not be for the faint hearted, you can eat it every day (as i did) or once or twice per week if the chorizo flavour is too strong for you, either way you will not be disappointed as this product will keep for months even when opened and the flavour will actually mature with out becoming over powering. A high quality product with a taste that wont disappoint.
It was some little amount of water in the package and meat wasn't properly chopped. There were some unchewable pieces inside. I had to keep it in the fridge, though I normally don't do so.
