Very nice and tasty olive oil. Perfect just to dip some bread and nothing else. Too good to mix it with other things, except maybe a little tomato and mozarella.
This is maybe my 4th purchase from Ibergour and having tried one other, can confirm that the service, communication and delivery has been faultless and the best. Unfortunately, I tend not to order my hams often enough to benefit from the voucher, so I would love to have a little more flexibility on the 'gift'.. I need pincers.. (The olive oil is very good however)
As for the Paleta, it's very tasty and with good texture and is very good value. My kids hang around the table when I'm carving like little puppies waiting for snacks, but once I've managed to carve a plate load, everyone in the family is very happy to enjoy the delicious ham. I'm not Spanish, but it's very clear from my very travelled experience, the difference between 'regular' ham and Jamon Iberico de Bellota. It's always worth the expense, but it's still something we save for a special treat, perhaps some special event, or Christmas. This time we opened the ham on December 1st and will hope to gradually consume over Christmas through to February. It's so nice to be able to just keep it on the counter and just regularly carve when my wife and I would like something to accompany a nice glass of Rioja!
For sure, will buy again.
This is my first purchase from ibergour and I'm very pleased with the 5J shoulder. I picked a shoulder because we are a family of 4, with 2 small kids. So far the meat is moist and tasty and we've just about finished the maza I think (the smaller part). The problem is, we're eating it a little more quickly than anticipated as it might be gone before Christmas.
It's great for a little snack at the end of the evening with a nice glass of wine..
I think the meat/fat ratio is just fine - the fat itself is good quality and can be eaten with the ham, so long as the yellowy parts next to the rind have been removed.
Quite likely to buy again, perhaps a Jamon (rather than a shoulder) depending on how long the bigger side of the meat takes to finish off.
This knife is very good for carving ham. It has quite an improvement over my regular less flexible knife and makes good fine cuts on my jamon.
Several times a year (for example, Christmastime or for our anniversary), we launch very short-lived (normally 1-3 days) discount offers on our jamones. Subscribe to our newsletter, and we will let you know when there is an offer.
