Ham Sanchez Romero Carvajal 5J
The hind legs of a 100% Ibérico pig raised free range. The woodlands of the Iberian peninsular southwest guarantee the best acorn-based diet for a unique race that we have preserved since 1879. The main oleic acids of the acorns infiltrate the meat of this so very pure and singular species native to our peninsula during the acorn-rich montanera season, transferring exquisite aromas and flavours to the ham and giving rise to a unique quality piece – truly one of Spain’s National Tresaures.
A taste of acorns, toasted hazelnuts, wet wood and wild flowers is detected. Some rashers from the tip feature a flavour that takes on a sweeter and fattier note. The persistence in the mouth is very long. The fifth flavour, the umami, is present and makes the taste buds water.
