Ibores cheese is one of the most emblematic products of Extremadura. As we know it today, it has been produced in the geographical area of the Protected Designation of Origin (DOP) since ancient times.
It is made with raw goat's milk and is presented in a rind rubbed with paprika. This cheese is characterised by goaty aromas with hints of vegetables and flavours. The paste is ivory-white, semi-hard, with a soft, buttery and moist texture, between friable and elastic, with small, not very abundant and unevenly distributed eyes. The flavour is characteristic, buttery, slightly acidic, slightly spicy and salty, mildly goaty in the aftertaste, and very pleasant on the palate.
