more fat than expected
Very good 5J paleta. Excellent service by IberGour in terms of: cutting (hand cut), nice vacuum packing, on time shipment delivery (to France).
The only wish I have ... when you can start shipping to Singapore?
As always, Ibergour have delivered a great product with reliable service. The paleta came on the scheduled day and was in perfect condition. Looking forward to the weeks ahead as we enjoy it.
very good quality of ham, taste, colour, smell
It comes very quickly in Bergamo after my order via email
I ‘’ll order sure another time and I want tante also your other productos
We have one of these jamon on the go all year round now: it sits in its stand on the worktop with a cloth over it, and a couple of times a week we cut a plateful for a starter. We were spending a fortune on jamon from the deli counter and although a whole ham is expensive, it is much cheaper overall, and much nicer, to have a whole leg. The quality is excellent and the ham delicious. Cutting it takes time to master, but there is a certain amount of pleasure in developing that skill. The bin men may be a bit bemused when the trotter pokes out through the bin bag after we have exhausted every seam of meat, but they have not said anything yet....
Very satisfied with my tasty shoulder ham from 5J!
Also perfectly delivered in two pieces, vacuumed, and the bones copped and vacuumed as well.
The Jamon was promptly delivered. Excellent packaging and arrived fresh. Lasted us the whole of the Christmas period. For a Shoulder, it was perfect as we did not need a whole leg which would have been too big. I would recommend this product definitely and my experience with Ibergour was very good.
Well having lived in the canaries for over 8 years, I acquired a taste for jamon, and 5jotas I’d my favourite. Ibeergour, have allowed us to continue with our Spanish tradition, with this exquisite jamon, with its rich nutty flavour. Many thanks yummy.
Unable to buy a 5J Cinco Jotas Bellota Jabugo shoulder in Malaga airport, I emailed Ibergour after we had arrived back in the U.K. The shoulder arrived within 4 days, wrapped and boxed and in perfect condition.
The quality of the shoulder is 'melt in the mouth', fantastic flavour.
I found Ibergour's website comprehensive, and their service excellent.
I will definitely be ordering from Ibergour again next Christmas.
Excellent product, you cannot expect otherwise from a 5Jotas ham, moist and flavourful, full of aroma. Delivery was impeccable: ordered on Wednesday evening, they said it would be here not later than Thursday the week after, although it might be earlier: it was here on Monday, with an excellent tracking system. We will certainly order from them again.
Another great ham! This is our 5th purchase and its always excellent. Great quality, easy to carve and delicious! Delivery was fast.
Okay, it wasn't cheap, but it is worth it. Shoulder is a bit cheaper and a bit fattier but the flavour is still great.
I have bought whole legs before to cut myself, but ended up not using it all. It has been more economical for me to buy it ready cut and vac-packed so I can now enjoy every packet in prime condition. It is very well cut, nice and thin, they also packet up the bits that couldn't be sliced into cubes and the bones, so nothing is wasted.
The Cinco Jotas ham is sweet and tasty, just as a premium Jamon Serrano should be.
I will be buying again....when this lot is finally consumed..
Bellota de 5J is the best addiction tou can get. Fast delivery by ibergour. Packaging a little different than before. I preferred the older packaging.
Very nice jamon - very competitive pricing compared to UK distributors. Standard shipping was very reasonable and arrived in three days.
I have bought a 5J Bellota Jabugo Shoulder for the last 5 years. Even if we have a very famous Swedish ham to eat at christmastime in Sweden, this 5J is impossible to beat! Don't hesitate buy it.
The Ham came quickly and was packed in a wooden box.
We had it as centre piece on the table at our pre Christmas cocktail party and it went down a treat.
Lovely sweet juicy Ham.
First time customer and I will definitely using this service again. From the time I ordered I was given information on the progress of the order to delivery. Products are packaged nicely and of highest quality especially the ham. Will recommend Ibergour to all my friends who will be sampling the ham over the Christmas period.
We've bought quite a few hams over the years and I can honestly say that these are our favourite.
From the first slice to the last, always excellent and so tasty
We can't fault the quality or the speed of delivery
Will be back for another in the new year
Fast delivery, good meat, but excessive fat. Normally buy from a small producer, but wanted to try a branded product. 5J clearly leave more fat on the leg to maximise profit. Shame as otherwise tasty.
Ordered for the very first time from Ibergour and I was really impressed with service to the UK. It arrived very quickly on DPD and I could track the delivery all the time. It arrived nicely wrapped and well packed. The meat was delicious and if you have tried the the meat from white pig you will notice the great difference immediately.
I would highly recommend Ibergour and I will definitely order again.
My 2nd order from Ibergour. Just what you can expect: Excllent quality!
Excellent service and a quick delivery. Pigs do have wings.
Really good service. Delivery was quick, very good packaging and the ham is delicious. I will use ibergour again, and probably try a guijuelo next time.
Cinco Jotas must be the best paleta I've ever tasted. A good otion for those, who don't want to spend on a real jamon bellota. Beats any serrano ham in taste.
Very speedy delivery is a plus.
I bought this product as a wedding gift for my friends. They absolutely loved it and the taste is great!
5J remains the premium Iberico ham. Bought as a centrepiece for my daughters engagement party and it went down a treat
All fantastic! The product is delicious and the delivery was on time with no issue; all as promised! great service and amazing pata negra,thanks!
Ham was bought as a gift for friends we stayed with in UK at Christmas - arrived quickly, well packed, and absolutely delicious ! So soft and tender and tasted amazing - one of the best we've had.
You will never know what is real ham if you keep buying overpriced Italian ham at Tesco. That was my decision
They send you packed ham in 100 g sachets that are consumable during next 6 months.
Now, I am enjoying superb ham at a reasonable price.
We are true lovers of jamon iberico, eating it often in Spain and in tapas bars in London - always bellota of course! We sometimes treat ourselves to a whole paleta at home, especially at the festive season when we'll be at home a lot and entertaining friends & family. (Even then, a jamon is just too big.) This is the first time we've had a 5J Cinco Jotas Jubugo paleta and it is truly delicious, certainly as good as any we've previously had.
Fantastic jamon. This is a shoulder, so some cuts have more fat but in my opinion the fat gives it great flavor. Perfect with Gran Reserva Rioja Alta First time I bought the whole leg, definitely coming back to ibergour again.
I have only just received the 5J and haven't started cutting as yet however so far the service from Ibergour has been excellent and the product arrived on time, packed well and looks great. I can however comment on the last Gran Reserva Iberica Bellota that I have just finished, it was fantastic. Cant wait to start this one.
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.
Most Ibergour offerings are now for minimum 2.5Kg quantity, and as a single home user, that's too much to take at one time. This Jabugo was offered at 1.5kg, which is a manageable amount, and is the main reason I ordered it. As Iberico ham goes, it's not bad, but I've definitely had better, and will probably hope to find something else offered in amounts less than 2.5Kg next time.
Ham is great - all good, there are no problems at all, delivery when said. Will order again. Thank you.
For my first Jamon I found the art of slicing very difficult but soon got the hang of it. I have to say that I absolutely couldnt get enough of it when I had mastered the art of thin slice of lean with a ripple of the fat! Spanish, Argentinian and British friends agree that the flavour is amazing. Wish I could afford to buy a larger Jamon (back leg).....the stand is a bit basic so I ordered another from Amazon but the knife is fine. Thanks 5J and Ibergour!
I have purchased a few hams and I always go back to 5J, for me it's the best tasting ham. I ordered my latest ham and it was delivered within 5 days, my family couldn't be happier, the taste and quality is as high as ever
Excellent quality, and full of flavour. Delivery and service was as promised and was first class. I would highly recommend.
Having lived in the canaries for seven years I have become accustomed to the best jamon and 5 j Cisco jotas is just that. The jamon is exactly what I expected with its nutty flavour from the acorns coming through. To top it off the service and delivery has been second to none, I fully recommend this company and the jamon.
Obviously this is top notch paleta. Ordering and following transportation very good. Site will now be my default jamon destination.
Fantastic ham, succulent and flavoursome, and an impressive display piece at Christmas time! Very helpful service to postpone delivery until my requested date. The free wooden stand was solid and far better quality than I expected, and I had no problem carving the ham on this using the free knife. All in all a great experience, and I can thoroughly recommend ibergour.
The taste is amazing. There is a lot of fat. I will buy again. The fat will be used for cooking.
I buy one ham each year as we approach Christmas. I used to buy while legs but I prefer the deeper flavour of the shoulders. This 5J shoulder is the nicest ham I have ever bought and I think it is virtually the perfect ham. The shoulder bone makes it a challenge to carve but don't let that put you off.
Once again a perfect ham, full of flavour and couldn't get enough of it. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a really high quality Pata Negra
Ibergour is probably the the best W-shop I have come across so far simply because it offer things in UK is hard to find like real saffron that I have missed for such a long time. In any case the 5J Jotas is at the moment the best "ham" I have tasted so far and it is a shame that I can't keep the full leg and slice it myself, in UK dry cellars don't exist and I am forced to choose the vacuum sliced bags. I don't like the plastic either but having no choice I still find the shoulder extremely tasty and convenient to keep safe in fridge in large ...quantity, I have purchased so far 20 or 30 bags of ham so far and the only mistake I made was to buy a few in summer. I recommend this shoulder extensively, it is fantastic and together with an organic red Merlot and a bit of parmesan artichokes and ...I better stop here! It is a fine quick meal by all means and It has a wild original taste as it should be.
We bought this as a centre piece for our wedding buffet. It was certainly an attraction!
It has a delicious flavour and was very moist. We needed an experienced hand to get us started with the slicing but once we had begun slicing was fine. Plenty of meat, which we managed to slice in quite long strips.
A fair bit of fat around the flesh but not so much inside so it was just lovely to eat, and kept moist for the three days it lasted us!
I would definitely recommend.
Very good value for money. This is the best Bellota I have tasted, outside my favourite restaurant in Gran Canaria. The ham is sweet with a long after flavour in the mouth, full of flavour and not too salty, and my pack was very lean with just the right amount of fat. I will be re-ordering this lovely shoulder.
5 Stars for speedy delivery and great packaging
5 Stars for taste
Cutting and serving this isn't as straight forward and easy as it seems on the videos and as this was my first time with a full shoulder at home I am still improving my technique... But this doesn't prevent me from savoring this amazing piece of Bellota!
Coming back definitely for this item!
2nd time i ordered from ibergour ans 2nd time i been really happy.this time i bought the bonless shoulder from 5j,and it was so much more easy to cut than with the bone.truly super flavour,soft quality meat.i would buy this again,it goes so perfect with vodka.
extremely good. great test. I feel it in my mouth for some minutes
after eating it. Very expensive but excellent product.
Very tasty ham indeed at a remarkable price. This is my first purchase of a whole ham (or in this case shoulder) so I wasn't entirely sure how much meat to expect, but I was a little disappointed in the amount that could be carved versus the amount of fat. I would say by weight about 30% of the shoulder was edible - but of course I have no idea if that's good or bad. Considering the low price of this ham I'm not too upset but I don't know how the value for money compares with other hams.
The taste is superb though - better than any that I've eaten in Spain. Don't expect it to last very long - next time I think we'll splash out for a proper ham instead of a shoulder!
You will be making no compromise on quality buying the paleta which has a fantastic complexity and depth of flavour. The best I have ever tasted. Having two free knives, I opted for the free olive oil this year which is excellent, and added an amazing cheese which I will review elsewhere. I was lucky to find Ibergour for my first purchase and now I would not go anywhere else, as they offer unbeatable price and service. Thank you.`
I am highly satisfied with this ham. I have been living in England for more than ten years but I come from south Spain and I must say that I felt like being back home.
Thank you for this excellent product.
Really perfect selection. Delicious taste of one of the best Spanish ham. My 2nd purchase and 2nd time 100% satisfaction. Delivery time only 3 days. Perfect service from ibergour.com. thank you !
It's the real spanish Jamon.
It's more than I expect, I can feel spain at home.
I can't find a right words to explain.
Honest flavour and price.
This épaule arrived only several days after the order. Top quality product and everything was as promised. Overall, a great experience.
We enjoyed the ham more than thought and so did all our guests over Christmas taste is that of Spain and each time it's eaten it transports us to Sunny Spain
Next time will go for Leg as found shoulder too fatty apart from that all good service is great also no regrets will be a loyal customer am sure.
My experience with Ibergour was more than satisfactory, I would say excellent!!
Extremely professional and quick. I would certainly recommend it to everyone. I look forward to my next Jabugo.
Very good communication and fast shipping was a good precursor to actually tasting the ham. To get the best result, I recommend separating the slices onto a plate and giving them 10-15 minutes of time to "air". Taste-wise the ham is better than anything you can buy e.g. at Waitrose or Sainsbury's, it really is no comparison. One things slightly curious was that in the 2 packages I ordered, 1 seemed to have slightly thicker cut slices, not to any very large detriment, but resulting in a slice less than in the first pack. Will try the leg/ham next for comparison!
Unfortunately, the shoulder ham that i received was extremely dry, probably due to being old stock. I was unable to get more than 6 worth while portions from it which of course made it an expensive deal. I didn't bother to complain until now, although i wished i had because my complaint was met by a very polite and understanding gentleman who advised me that they would have replaced it free of charge providing less than 25% of it has been used.
This Christmas i will give it another go. Fingers crossed !!
With so much choice Its hard to decide which jamon to choose, obviously you don't want to comprise on quality but the prices vary so much from brand to brand. You also need to consider would you be able to consume a whole jamon or should you pick a paleta instead?
There is an answer to your questions; 5J cinco jotas paleta delivers good quality at an affordable price every time, i have purchased it a number of times in Spain and once from Ibergour and i can assure you this product will deliver delicious full flavored jamon every time. Its just the right size that you can consume it over a 2/3 months period and still maintain its quality and taste with out turning bad. If you are a jamon novice and new to the world of jamon or you just want to impress your friends, there is no better buy than 5J cinco jotas. It's exquisite.
I have used other suppliers of Spanish products on-line and been disappointed with the end product i received. I placed my faith in Ibergour when i made my order, they promised the best in service and end product and they delivered in both. I received my order on time and in perfect condition, i can honestly say to any consumers seeking to purchase fine quality Spanish products look no further, your search is over, Ibergour meets all your requirements for quality products.
I have used Ibergour in the past and will be using them again in the future i can recommend both their products and service, when your parcel arrives to your house it will be like a little bit of Spanish sun shine delivered to your front door.
I'm very happy with the quality of the shoulder! This is the first time I have purchased a shoulder, and in my mind the taste is as good as ham. The fat is rich and full of flavour, the meat is tender with super aroma - everything to be eaten! No trace of connective tissue so far.
I bought the boneless version and it came delivered in two pieces just as described, that is perfect. I have opened one of them and keep the other fresh in vacuum pack until the first is consumed.
Delivery took a week, not the fastest but within the estimate.
Very good flavour but a little bit too much fat on the outside which had to be cut out. Overall it was good, but the yield of meat was less than expected.
No question this is the best Jamon Jabugo I have ever bought. My only regret is that we did not have enough people visiting to warrant buying a leg instead of a shoulder. This will definitely be a regular Christmas present from me to me, and any other time of the year I can think of an excuse. My children and grandchildren visit in August so I think I see another reason for a purchase. Incidentally, the knife and stand were first class as well and, after a bit of practice, cutting ham is not a problem. We also got some excellent frying fat by reducing the skin and off-cuts of fat to render dripping. And we used the bones to flavour a stew!
I bought this wonderful ham as a Christmas present for my husband. It was to remind him of many great meals in Spain. However we both loved it so much that we had eaten it long before Christmas arrived! The flavour was rich and distinguished. Certainly 5*
There is enormous pleasure in treating yourself to something which is widely regarded as "the best in the world" and 5J is "the best of the best". The smaller shoulder joint is a lot more affordable but the flavour is fantastic. It arrived in perfect condition and with the special carving knife and ham holder we were quickly able to produce wafer thin slices like real "jamoneros". It stood in perfect condition for more than two months in our cool attic but we also froze some for solo treats. Just one slice with ice cold Tio Pepe is a feast, two slices is an orgy.
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.
