The Acorn Fed 100% Ibérico Loin is a dry cured meat that is made in true artisanal fashion in Jabugo from a whole piece corresponding to the lumbar muscle. It is known for a powerful and fragrant aroma, a slight maroon and ashy colour with a very well-defined shine and a mild paprika flavour with hints of land and the smoking process. Wrapped in an elegant cylindrical container, it enhances the properties of an authentic dried, cured Acorn Fed 100% Ibérico Loin. An irresistible Cinco Jotas delicacy. Marbled by the infiltrated pork fat, slightly golden: “It reminds me of chopped tuna sashimi”. The shiny red colour grabs your attention and asks you to try it. It melts in the mouth and there is a bit of paprika, a touch of garlic and hints of spice and smoke…the aftertaste is long and very gratifying. Intense aroma, very powerful. It smells like meat, wet fields and acorns and reveals touches of spices. The burnt wood and perhaps a touch of toasted sugar also come out as well as the crust of toasted bread.
