    These are larger pieces and the spicy sauce was very nice! I liked this tin as the amount of spice was right and the sardines were tasty

    The BEST large sardines that I’ve ever eaten, without a doubt. And even though I’m more of a sprat person, these immediately go in my sardine top 4. Texture is absolutely perfect all the way through, consistently medium-soft and flaky with flawless moisture. Massive “sardine tails” that are as big as any *full* sardine I’ve ever had, which means that these are overwhelmingly satisfying in the best of meaty ways. I ate these by themselves straight out of the tin and wasn’t tempted to add a thing. The grilled flavor was slight but present, resulting in an ever-so-slightly softer surface that almost hit a salt-cured anchovy note in my brain. The escabeche was delicious, light, well-rounded and even stuck to the sardine fairly well during alligator rolls but … where’s the picante? On a spicy scale of 1 to 5, these are a 1. Seriously, no heat at all. I drank the liquid afterwards to make sure I wasn’t missing it but it’s … not … there.

    Despite not being spicy, these are simply a spectacular experience. Are they worth the price? Tough call, it’s such a steep price but I could easily make a case for it (especially if you’re sharing the tin with others). This Güeyu Mar tin hits a level of quality/flavor/texture that I didn’t know was possible for a large sardine. I’ll be returning to this brand for the most special of special occasions.
