Purebred Iberian
Bellota Top quality: pig fed exclusively on acorns (more)
Ingredients: Lean meat and fat from bellota-grade purebred Iberian pigs, paprika, garlic, salt and sugar.
Bellota-grade purebred Iberian pigs. A purebred Iberian pig comes from parents of 100% Iberian bloodstock (not cross-bred) and accounts for less than 5% of the country's Iberian pigs. The animals add at least 37% of their initial weight on a diet consisting mainly of acorns, grass, roots and tubers.
Enjoying your chorizo
Remove the plastic vacuum packaging and leave at room temperature at least 1 hour before consuming.
Keep in the fridge, or in some place under 15ºC / 59ºF. Do not freeze.

The chorizo sausage ships in a cardboard carton. It is vacuum-packed (see picture).

A high quality product with a taste that wont disappoint

When the chorizo arrived it was soft to the touch on the outside so it was necessary to hang the chorizo in the kitchen without the packaging for a week or two to allow the product to become hard/solid to the touch this allowed for better slicing.
When i opened the chorizo it released the the familiar red oil containing the robust taste and strong flavor, the chorizo is delicious with bread on the side and on with a full bodied red wine. This chorizo is a connoisseurs choice and may not be for the faint hearted, you can eat it every day (as i did) or once or twice per week if the chorizo flavour is too strong for you, either way you will not be disappointed as this product will keep for months even when opened and the flavour will actually mature with out becoming over powering. A high quality product with a taste that wont disappoint.

Au départ j'ai été désagréablement surprise …At first I was unpleasantly surprised ...

au départ j'ai été désagréablement surprise par la texture molle et la présence de gros morceaux, parfois durs, dans le chorizo. Maintenant que j'ai abordé le dernier tiers du chorizo je le trouve nettement meilleur, peut-être parce qu'il a eu le temps de sécher un peu. Au niveau du goût et de l'odeur je le trouve agréablement relevé et salé mais manquant un peu de compléxité et de profondeur aromatique.

initially I was unpleasantly surprised by the soft texture and the presence of lumps, sometimes hard, in the chorizo. Now that I approached the last third of chorizo I find it much better, perhaps because he has had time to dry a bit. As far as taste and smell I find pleasantly salty, and found lacking some complexity and depth of flavor.

Meat wasn't properly chopped

It was some little amount of water in the package and meat wasn't properly chopped. There were some unchewable pieces inside. I had to keep it in the fridge, though I normally don't do so.

Eccessivamente dolceToo sweet

Mi è parso eccessivamente dolce ed aveva un certo retro gusto forse a causa del confezionamento.

I found it overly sweet and had a certain aftertaste, perhaps because of the packaging.

Tende a impastare la linguaTends to mix the language

ottimo il profumo e anche il sapore e' adatto per insaporire le tue ricette , trovo invece la sua consistenza al palato poco piacevole, tende a impastare la lingua , ho mangiato in passato altri chorizo di qualita' secondo me assai migliore.

just the smell and even taste and 'suitable for flavoring your recipes, I find her rather unpleasant texture to the palate, it tends to mix the language, I ate in the past other chorizo quality' in my opinion much better.

Joselito, mejorJoselito best

Aunque no soy un ferviente del chorizo, recuerdo que este chorizo Maldonado estaba bueno; aunque debo reconocer que tras probar el chorizo Joselito, este resultó bastante mejor.

Although I am an avid sausage, chorizo Maldonado remember that this was good, although I must admit that after testing Joselito chorizo, this was much better.
