Una paletilla di ottima qualità, di una casa che rientra senz'altro tra quelle più classiche e sicureA paletilla of excellent quality, of a house that is certainly one of the most classic and safe ones

A noi piace alternare di volta in volta prosciutti o paletillas di Guijuelo (Salamanca), dell'Estremadura e di Jabugo. Tra i prodotti di quest'ultima denominazione, 5 Jotas è una delle grandi marche classiche, con le quali si va sul sicuro.
La paletilla che ci è arrivata era ottima, di grande qualità, già perfettamente stagionata e pronta da mangiare ma, se lo avessimo voluto, era in grado di reggere molti mesi ancora di maturazione. Il prezzo d'acquisto ci è sembrato assolutamente ragionevole, considerata la qualità altissima.
Anche la spedizione è stata veloce e senza nessun problema.
Insomma, ripeteremo senz'altro l'acquisto.

We like to alternate from time to time hams or paletillas from Guijuelo (Salamanca), from Extremadura and from Jabugo. Among the products of the latter denomination, 5 Jotas is one of the great classic brands, with which you are on the safe side. The paletilla that arrived was excellent, of great quality, already perfectly seasoned and ready to eat but, if we had wanted it, it was able to withstand many more months of maturation. The purchase price seemed absolutely reasonable to us, given the very high quality. Shipping was also fast and without any problems. In short, we will certainly repeat the purchase.

Never disappoints

I’ve been purchasing my ham every time from Ibergour for several years and every single time the order, the delivery, the customer service and most importantly the quality of the ham is extraordinary . This time around I order this paletilla for a party and I never seen a ham lasting so little in my life. It was devoured in less than 3 hours I didn’t have time to cut it before the plate was empty again. Everyone was over the moon and couldn’t stop talking a about it. Thank you so much for your excellent service. I cannot recommend you enough.

Préférer la coupe à la mainPrefer to cut by hand

L’épaule est excellente, comme toujours. J’ai essayé toutes les présentations, voici mes conseils :
- L’épaule entière à couper soi-même. c’est moins difficile que l’on pourrait croire, à condition d’avoir les bons couteaux. Problème : comme tout le monde adore ça, vous risquez de passer la soirée à couper les tranches ! Un peu longuet quand on n’a pas l’habitude. Le jambon se garde plus ou moins 3 semaines sans rancir en l’emballant dans un linge.
- l’épaule désossée, débitée en gros morceaux : nécessite d’avoir une trancheuse chez soi. On profite moins du gras rose. Pas mon mode préféré.
- l’épaule tranchée machine et emballée sous vide par sachet de 100g. Les tranches sont un peu épaisses (environ 6 par sachet), et sont moins agréables à déguster
- l’épaule tranchée main : c’est nettement plus cher, ouille ! Mais c’est de loin la meilleure si l’on ne veut pas s’attaquer à la pièce entière.
Voilà des années que je commande chez Ibergour, et je ne remercierai jamais assez mon ami Alex qui me l’avait recommandé. Dommage qu’ils ne vendent plus de lomo, snif.

The shoulder is excellent, as always. I have tried all the presentations, here are my tips:
- The whole shoulder to be cut yourself. it's less difficult than you might think, provided you have the right knives. Problem: as everyone loves it, you risk spending the evening cutting the slices! A little long when you're not used to it. The ham will keep more or less 3 weeks without going rancid by wrapping it in a cloth.
- the boneless shoulder, cut into large pieces: you need to have a slicer at home. We take less advantage of pink fat. Not my favorite mode.
- machine-sliced shoulder and vacuum
-packed in 100g bags. The slices are a little thick (about 6 per bag), and are less pleasant to eat
- the shoulder sliced by hand: it's much more expensive, ouch! But it's by far the best if you don't want to tackle the whole piece.
I've been ordering from Ibergour for years, and I can't thank my friend Alex enough for recommending it to me. Too bad they don't sell lomo anymore, sniff.

How to slice a spanish cured shoulder

The slicing of a ham with a knife is part of the genuine, quality Iberico ham tasting experience. It is a simple process too, with the right equipment. Nevertheless, certain safety measures should be observed.

  • Use a holder designed for this purpose, to keep the shoulder firmly in place.
  • When slicing, the hand not holding the knife should always be higher than the hand holding the knife.
  • Keep your body at a safe distance from the cutting area.
  • Slice slowly, without applying too much force.
