A very pleasant cheese; the rind is only as hard as you would expect from such a cheese, and the paste has a fine texture and appearance. The initially mild taste develops on the palate with an appealing nutty tang and is excellent partnered with membrillo or even honey. If you don't mind mixing your cuisines, it makes a very good pesto.
As noted in other reviews, a very healthy covering of fat but this only served to protect the ample quantities of sweet-tasting ham. Impressive depth and subtlelty of flavour. I served this ham at two family gatherings of 10+ people, and we are still snacking it off it a week later. I would recommend this as an excellent value ham. Faultless delivery service and I appreciated being able to track its progress across Europe.
