Characteristic cylindrical shape, with flat faces and slightly convex sides, with rounded edges. Brownish bark, with gray hues. Particular smell, with memories of licorice on the outside and honey on the inside, very balanced as a whole. With a grainy and crystalline texture, it allows you to perceive in the mouth with a high intensity, some initial sweet notes, integrated rear salt, with a spicy, never burning aftertaste. Aromatic balsamic journey of honey and flowers, combined with the personality of a 1-year maturation. Overall, a balance between personality and power in maturation, a pronounced but always harmonious taste for a cheese with a personal and different taste.
Consuming it alone seems almost inexcusable. Due to its texture and maturation, a naturally sweet wine will go well with the whole in the mouth, although finos or manzanillas, or a sweet Garnacha can also be recommended. It admits various combinations due to its flavor and aromatic complexity, from sweet red fruit jams, through white grapes, toasted hazelnuts, spicy mustards, dried apricots or dates, or pears. Due to the degree of humidity, breads with more mold will accompany them better, such as sliced bread with raisins or pears, or even olive bread.
