Queso Ibores Natural is a famous cheese in Spain made using the raw milk obtained from healthy mountain goats. The farms on which these goats are kept and cared for must meet certain criteria in order to have their goat’s milk considered for use in making this delicious cheese.
Queso Ibores is subtle. It has character and intensity but is not clingy or needy and doesn’t need to flaunt it. Consumers will notice a fresh acidity in the cheese, with a slight minerality and saltiness that is offset by the slight sharpness of the goat’s milk.
The cheese itself must be tried on its own first to really enjoy the complexity and subtlety that this cheese really offers. It can also be part of a cheeseboard or charcuterie. It can simply be enjoyed on fresh crust bread, butter, and a nice strong Crianza to pair with it.
Cheeses (except brined ones in jars) should be stored in the crisper or the butter drawer of a refrigerator, not on the shelves themselves. This is to help regulate their temperature and humidity levels—and prevents the formation of mold. Once opened, they should not be kept in their original packaging. Soft cheeses with delicate rinds need to breathe, so they are best placed in glass containers lined with paper towels to absorb extra moisture. Leave the lid open a tiny bit for air to circulate and don’t forget to write up a label with the date you first opened the package. Kindly pay attention to the best before date label when you receive your cheese. Consume prior to date indicated.
