Unveiling the paragon of Spanish charcuterie, the Cinco Jotas Boneless Acorn-Fed 100% Ibérico Shoulder Ham is an edible opus that encapsulates tradition, luxury, and gastronomic distinction.

Tasting Notes from the Curator

Crafted from the pristine lineage of 100% pure-bred black Iberian pigs, the shoulder ham by Cinco Jotas is nothing less than a culinary masterpiece. Upon first encounter, one is greeted by a bouquet of aromas: the nutty undertones of acorns, and a bouquet of herbs, delivering a savory umami complexity honed through the unique climate of Jabugo. The flavor journey delves deeper still, with a luscious nutty sweetness, balanced saltiness melding exquisitely with the savory intricacies of a richness that lingers with each tender morsel. As a testament to its esteemed crafting, the ham reveals a texture so tender that each slice threatens to dissolve on one’s palate, suspended in the moment between art and indulgence, bringing to bear not only exquisite taste but an experience that is unforgettably, intensely personal.

Pairings & Suggestions

  • Tapas Inspired: Drape thinly sliced Cinco Jotas ham atop a toasted slice of baguette, accompanied by a robust Fino sherry.
  • Charcuterie Boards: Arrange with Manchego cheese, quince paste, and marcona almonds for a balance of textures and tastes.
  • Artisanal Loaves: Serve with warm, crusty bread to compliment its richness.
  • Sommelier’s Selection: Savor with a glass of Tempranillo or an effervescent vintage Cava for an elevated pairing.

    Whispers from Jabugo’s Curing Cellars

Nestled in the heart of Jabugo, a landscape painted with ancient oaks and whispering with heritage, the Cinco Jotas curing cellars hold a symphony of aromas that tell tales as old as time. The ham embodies the history woven through the dewy pastures of the Sierra de Aracena park, a place where pigs roam beneath the forest canopy and forage to their heart’s desire, each bite a narrative of earthen acorns and piquant air.

Storage Instructions

Store the Cinco Jotas ham in a cool environment, between 14-18°C (57-64°F) with 60-70% relative humidity. Once opened, cover the cut surface and wrap in cloth for freshness.
