more fat than expected
Very nice jamon - very competitive pricing compared to UK distributors. Standard shipping was very reasonable and arrived in three days.
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.
Ham is great - all good, there are no problems at all, delivery when said. Will order again. Thank you.
The taste is amazing. There is a lot of fat. I will buy again. The fat will be used for cooking.
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!
