Drunken Goat

The Drunken Goat is a Spanish semi-soft, creamy goat. She gets her name from the fact that the rind is washed in red wine, and some of that flavor sinks into the cheese, giving it a fruity, fresh taste. The cheese itself is a pure and blinding white.

Campo Del Montalban

Cow, sheep, and goat from Spain. Like Manchego, the Campo goes wonderful with Mebrillo paste or honey. He also pairs well with thinly sliced Jamon Serrano, or a full bodied red wine.

The name always reminds me of the Count from Sesame Street, “Aha! I am de CAMPO del MONtalbaaahnnn! Howww many pounds would you like??”

ONETiK Ossau-Iraty

They say this cheese may be one of the oldest aged cheeses in existence, dating back 3800 years or more.

Its a mild and nutty sheep’s milk Brebis cheese from the Basque region in southern France/northern Spain.

Leonora

Mi Amor, Mi Corazon, Mi Vida!

Leonora is hands-down one of my favorite goat cheeses of all time. Creamy and cakey, strong, earthy, she approaches the ideal in a goaty goat cheese. She’s Castilian, from the dry, arid hills northwest of Madrid and she has a lemon finish and a tangy rind with a bit of an after-kick.
