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.
