Maybe you have bought something really special lately? Well I did in November last year. I had a salchichon and a chorizo... in my handbag when flying home from Spain; no problema when travelling within Europe. Both are made from Ibérico pork. We started with the salchichon cut in the thinnest slices ever. Quite ferm sausage with an incredible taste.
Only a few days ago I got the vacuum-packed chorizo out and let it breath for a good hour. The whole kitchen started to smell of chorizo. But what a revelation in taste. I have eaten a lot of chorizo in my life but this is something simply fantastic. Not too spicy, not too much pimentón and a perfect consistency.
Probably my best argument to return to Spain soon.
