It is so good I keep coming back for more! Excellent quality jamon and excellent value. It just keeps getting better and better
This was my first purchase of both ready sliced ham and the D.O. Guijuelo Bellota ham.
The good: The flavour of the ham is good, it's got the right balance of sweet and salty, really good marbling and a nice flavour to the fat. I'd certainly buy this D.O. Guijuelo again.
The bad: I felt the ham would have been much better hand sliced. It was too thin and even and affected the overall texture. I also had a problem in that they were delivered to England during our short but powerful summer, unfortunately all of the fat melted and has affected the overall quality a bit. It's still nice, but would have been nicer.
Service as always was good.
In short, I recommend the ham but would suggest going for a whole ham.
It's as good as they say. Recommended. Buy it!
And now I must add another ten words to make up twenty .............
Quite sweaty on arrival and a bit over fat on the surface (which of course you pay for in weight) but once through that the ham is absolutely beautiful. Best I have tasted in very many a year, here in the UK and in Spain. Nutty, sweet, melting, delicate but meaningful. Excellent value over the big brands against which it generally holds its own (5 Jotas, Joselito) and decent service too from Ibergour.
No hesitations recommending this.
We have had several different Bellota hams from Ibergour in the past unfortunately this one D.O. Guijuelo Bellota Ham is very marbled and the cure is inconsistent across the ham. The inner side is nicely crystallised with a rich colour we expect from Bellota ham while the outer side is still quite milky and under cured. We have been eating the ham for a week now and hoping it dries out over the next few days.
We prefered the Jamón ibérico de bellota 5J Cinco Jotas we previously have had from Ibergour...... We would not buy this particular brand form Ibergour again the value for money isnt there ......
