Net weight: wedge approx. 150g 

This iconic smoked Basque cheese is made exclusively with raw Latxa sheep's milk with a minimum of three months of maturation. This is smoked cheese has a dense, slightly dry texture. A gently smoked aroma gives way to a light sweetness balanced by fresh acidity. The finish is clean and elegant.

The smoking of the cheeses is done at the end of the process, using trees that grow on the land, mostly beech but also a bit of cherry. The smoking chamber is basically a cupboard built onto and outside wall and, into this are put the cheeses to be smoked. The smoke that forms is introduced slightly into the outer layer of the cheese, which provides the wonderful smoked aftertaste.
