José Gourmet Smoked Sardines in Extra Virgin Olive Oil


Smoked sprats are everywhere, but for some reason there’s only a few smoked true sardines, so we welcomed this tin into our ranks immediately. We would classify the level of smokiness to be mild. Just enough to make you think you’re on the beach and just blew into the coals to get the fire, and the evening, started.

    These are really nice – these seem to be lightly smoked, and given their size, means there’s a good balance between the slightly sweet smokey flavor and the pleasant flavor of the fish. The texture is also really nice – the sardines are a nice size to hold up to smoking – they’re not dry or brittle – they’re a nice bite, nice chew. If you enjoy smoked sprats and might like something a bit more substantial – these should do the trick. If you’re looking for a different sardine experience, these are definitely worth a try.

    I brought these to work tonight for lunch. Great protein option! These ‘dines pack just the right amount of smokiness. They are good sized and firm. I love a clean sardine that won’t have me burping it up the rest of the night and these definitely are work approved.

    This is an exceptional “splurge” tin. Three LARGE sardines have a great firm texture, but not dry. These are the right combination of well seasoned and well smoked. Nothing is overpowering, the tin is very balanced. I enjoyed right from the tin and I’m happy I kept it simple. These are more than I usually spend but I would do it again given how great they were.
