Knowing about Iberico ham means every sense is awakened, triggering our ability to appreciate every nuance
Aromas that remind of pastures, chocolate, walnuts, nuts and caramel. Sublimation, rapture and the awakening of appetite.
Juicy and unctuous texture. Slowly melts on your palate. Surprise: it is tender and delicate. A ham doesn’t need to be hard to be good. Tenderness is delicate.
An enveloping, soft and long-lasting flavour.
Impact on every taste bud.
Does not saturate or punch. Low saltiness, somewhat sweeter and long-lasting. Umami, aftertaste, ecstasy, giving in, enjoyment, happiness, disconnecting.
A glossy sheen with soft walnut streaks and cherry red shades. Rush, prelude, surprise, enthusiasm, alert, focus, certainty.
The sounds of the pastures and the drying sheds accompanied by the silence of thinking taken over by appreciation.
