Smoked Idiazabal cheese 1kg
A whole 1kg round of wood-smoked cheese made from unpasteurised sheeps milk, (D.O. Idiazabal) - made using the milk of the shaggy-haired Lacha sheep from the Basque region of Spain, high in the Pyrenees mountains. It is cured for around 9 months, and has a close texture with tiny holes, a fragrant smoky aroma and nutty taste. Great eaten with membrillo, apples, or melted on toast; and to drink, an oaky white rioja or a glass of Spanish cider, as drunk particularly in the north of Spain where this cheese comes from.
