Appearance

  • Ham slices are deep red in colour, spotted by tyrosine, the amino acid that crystallises as a result of an excellent curing process.

Texture

  • Juicy texture, very pleasant in the mouth.
  • Tender but firm: it preserves its structure while chewed.

Aroma

  • Potent, pleasant, specific, attractive aromas. Long-lasting, very marked and clear.
  • At the base, there are very frank notes of fresh nuts.

Taste

  • A fine, personal, balanced, tasty flavour. This is an elegant ham, its key flavours are already present while still in mid-palate.

Acorn-Fed Iberico Ham

You can enjoy Arturo Sanchez Acorn-fed Jamon iberico in amazing recipes or just with bread. There are thousand ways but the real one is to experienced it on its own, without anything else. Temperature is key: it should be about 24ºC, and the slices shine when cut with a knife, just a few millimetres thick and about three centimetres long.

After, you have to surrender to your senses: first, the nose reveals a potent, pleasant aroma with notes to fresh nuts. This will activate the taste buds; only then the whole slice must be put in the mouth, without breaking it, and placing it directly against the roof of the mouth.

The fat, will slowly melt until fusing itself to the lean meat, which will then explode in the mouth with that nimble flavour, pure, persistent, elegant and full of nuances that can only be brought about by the Free-Range 50% iberico ham.

Fino wine, manzanilla wine, lager beer, white and young Reus vermouth are good pairing for the Free-Range 50% iberico from Arturo Sanchez.
