John:

There are many El Corte Ingles stores with supermarkets where they sell Iberico ham. The Spanish like fresh cut ham and you can ask the butcher to slice the ham for you. One good brand is Joselito, which costs about 16 to 17 euros for 100 grams. They also have packaged ham costing about the same.

Google "El Corte Ingles Madrid" to find the locations.

IMO, there are two top shops in Madrid:

López Pascual on Corredera Baja de San Pablo 3, near Plaza de Callao. López Pascual is Madrid’s oldest ham shop with over 80 years of history and experience behind them. Their specialty is the Iberian pork ham, acorn-fed in the most traditional areas, like Jabugo, Cumbres Mayores and Guijuelo. They pay special attention to the way in which the ham is cut, using a good knife and the skills of a true professional.

Gondíaz on Plaza de la Marina Española 7, near the Royal Palace. Since 1962, Gondíaz's store in the city centre has been selling Iberian hams and cold cuts. His providers are the most renowned manufacturers in the country, like Sánchez Romero Carvajal (Jabugo), Arturo Sánchez and Francisco Martín (Guijuelo) amongst others.

When buying Iberico, there are 3 classes attending to feeding:

- Cebo: artificial feeding and pig with not a lot of movement in the farm.

- Recebo: same as before, but for the last months the pig goes out of the farm to the countryside and it's fed with acorn.

- Bellota: pig spends the whole time in the countryside eating natural acorn.

Best and most expensive is obviously the last one.

There are also 3 main areas where jamon comes from:

- Guijuelo, in Castile

- Extremadura

- Huelva (Jabugo for example)

There are more places like Teruel or Cordoba or Seville where it may come from, but not as famous as those above. There are slight differences in texture and taste depending on where it comes from, and big differences in price. In a nice jamon shop you can test and try several cuts if you are going to buy a big quantity or a whole leg.
