I have always bought Ham in the past and decided on the shoulder this year as we never finish it. However although the meat is good it is very difficult to carve. There is a lot of fat. Next year I will buy a ham again.
The flavour was a fine, long lasting deep and rich. The texture however was not good. Machine cutting is a very poor substitute for slicing by hand. The slices were thick and to much was left over and cut in to chunks. Was left mildly disappointed.
I am deeply disappointed with the ham we received. We are accustomed to eating excellent quality jamon and the joselito ham was horrible. 3/4 of the ham was just rancid fat which is a waste and the left over Ham is mediocre in taste . We feel we have ripped off& will not recommend this product to anyone as its well overpriced and and very poor in taste and overall quality
Very easy to summerise this product
-The Taste of this product is super
- Great Value and beyond compare for family get togethers.
- Ibergour Deliver a Superbe Service & Selection
- Joselito produce a remarkable product. Once you start, its hard to stop, even the Kids love it.
- If you are Catering for big groups +20 you may need a larger size then the 5kg as a single shoulder is Quality not Quantity.
- Dont scrimp, Make sure you have the Correct Knife.
- Also the storage conditions must be adheired to strictly as drying out will happen within 5 days.
But most of all -----"Enjoy"
purchase and delivery are excelent. All in time and in perfect condition. The Jamon however did not meet my expectations. Too dry and in comparison to the greasy skin.... a little disappointed. next time I'll take one from my local butcher in casares andalucia and take extra airfreight cost. sorry.
I ordered a Joselito 'Gran Reserva' and I couldn't be more satisfied. Last year I bought the 5Js and I have to say, Joselito is equaly good or even better. Definitely worth paying that little extra. Just Excellent!!!!
I enjoyed each slice, the fat is clean and white and the flavour of the Jamon is wonderful. Wish I bought a larger piece :-)
Our familly and guests at Xmas loved the Joselito Bellota ham shoulder,it's like eating Caviar,it melts in the mouth.
We first had it when we visited my brother in Spain and we decided that this is the one we will always buy.
This is a lovely shoulder - the best I have ever tasted. It is also great knowing there have been no preservatives or other junk added. Joselito is expensive but worth it.
The paletilla shoulder is much stronger in its taste than the regular ham. I have tried and enjoyed both, especially with Manchego cheese, which in the case of the paletilla ham mixes perfectly the flavours.
Those who find it too strong, try serving it with quality olive oil,or with a few slices of goat cheese with a little honey. You will be surprised.
I have only ever eaten Pata Negra in Spain before sending for a sliced pack of Gran Reserva Bellota ham from you. It is an ideal way to try different hams for someone who either cannot keep a whole leg or shoulder or who wants to try them without going to the expense of a larger amount. The sliced 100g packs I received were delicious, perhaps not quite as moist as cut fresh from a leg, but superb flavour. I have re-ordered some different packs this time and I look forward to trying them. The service and information you provide is excellent and I learned a lot about the various pigs and qualities. I rate IberGour five stars. Thank you.
