Pazo - Jamon Iberico
So as we speak I'm at the bar at Pazo (go chowhound mobile) eating some devine Jamon Iberico - and somehow I can't believe this is real. To anyone that has had the "real thing" in Spain you'll agree its something not to miss - kinda like your first experience with waygu beef. That said - I thought you couldn't get it in this county. The bartender tells me there is some "hook-up" - of which I'm a skeptic. So does anyone have the inside track? Is this for real? And how do they pull it off? Diplomatic pouch?

The whole bellota hams are only $1600 each. I have had one "on order" now for over a year, while the euro (and the price) continues to climb. The pigs are fed acorns for their last few months of life. Who knows if I will ever see this pig, but you can buy small packages, which I can only hope they have in stock.
