Maldonado Iberico Lomo Embuchado
From the first time i travelled to Spain and tasted lomo/jamon/chorizo I've been hooked, the only problem with purchasing these products is when you bring them home from Spain they don't always taste the same. For a number of years i have been finding it increasingly more difficult to find a good quality product that travels well, finally i can say i have found it.
When you open the packaging around your Maldonado lomo you release the distinctive, delicate aroma which evokes emotions that will immediately transport you to sunny days, long nights and memories of happier times. I purchased 1.4 kg for my family of four (with other products), the lomo lasted 6 weeks from start to finish the lomo never lost flavor or taste. The foil backed packaging and layer of grease kept the flavor locked in and maintained the premium products' shelf life.
When i first slice in to this product had to control my self as i felt the urge to eat everything my self. As i slice the lomo thinly it released the naturally liquefied grease/fat (the healthy kind that's good for you) from the matured product releasing more flavor, as you place the first slice on your tongue the lomo has a melt in your mouth sensation that is intoxicating.
I can highly recommend this product and as an authentic, premium quality Spanish product, for me its one of the best tasting lomo's ever produced. If there is any product you purchase this year from Ibergour make it this one you will not be disappointed. The taste is priceless.
Geschmack sehr fein, relativ frisch am Besten, dann sehr feine Paprika Note.
Tastes very fine, relatively fresh is best, then very fine pepper note.
A very understated item, its aroma was subtle giving away none of the surprises when it was eaten, amazing depth of flavour, well balanced in seasoning.
