I have bought this ham twice this year. The first ham was exceptional and the best we have had. The second not so much, it doesn't have the incredible depth of flavour as the first and there is a lot more fat in it. Not so much that I would consider a return but certainly enough to stop me re-ordering a third ham, especially when considered with the lack of consistency of flavour between the two. Don't get me wrong the second ham is good but the first was truly exceptional and worth every penny.
Good but not so good such the last time. Next time will try another one. Anyway you are the best guys.
Che buono il giambone Cinco Jotas! I love this one.
I better write it in English, I prefer this ham far better than the Italian Parma classic because its taste is wild, is not salty it is incredibly flavoured, it is a feast!
It is fantastic with figs and with Italian sparkling wine. Put it together with home grown salad and Parma cheese few Sardinian artichokes and lunch is done! It is advisable not eat it too often and change with less tasty products to appreciate its flavour. Having bought Guijuelo together in the same order I prefer this one because although strong and full of flavour it has something unique that I can't explain, there are no words rather than say it is the best so far.
I would not buy it again in summer because it suffers heat and although it has been delivered in clever vacuum packages it still suffers summer weather.
Delivery was excellent just a few days from order as received.
Ham arrived well packed and in excellent condition. Cannot comment on flavour as will not be eating it until later in the year. Having bought these hams in Spain before this one looks as good if not better than those I have brought back by car. The company was helpful and responded to questions by return. I took the free olive oil instead of the knife and stand. Delicious. Only complaint is that it cost more than listed because of the exchange costs. The company should arrange for credit card facilities in the UK rather than simply in Spain. That way the cost would be as stated on the site.
Very fast delivery of a very tasty ham.I am still enjoying it.
THE DIFFERENCE IN PRICE WITH A SHOULDER IS NOT COMPLETELY COVERED BIJ THE DIFFERENCE IN TASTE.
I think that the slices are just a bit too thick, not easy to form the slices f. inst. around something.But the taste and flavour is fantastic.
