Smokin' Goat

Spain

$15

Smoky, tangy and highly melt-able goat cheese from Spain.

A real crowd pleaser, Smokin' Goat is a lightly smoked, semi-soft Spanish goat's milk cheese from the Canary Islands. This cheese is aged for 15 days and naturally smoked over beech wood a week after production.

Balanced smoke brings out the toasted notes in the goat’s milk.

Fruity and friendly; soft on the tongue and not too goaty, it is a mild, crowd-pleasing cheese with light smoke that doesn’t overpower the overall flavor of the cheese itself.

Slice and serve with marcona almonds, chorizo and Arouse Melange. Mix with mozzarella in grilled cheese sandwiches or mac-and-cheese.

Based on the island of Fuerteventura, Grupo Ganaderos de Fuerteventura is a family-run dairy that aims to protect the strong cheesemaking tradition of the region.

They work primarily with Majorero goat’s milk from local farmers. The Smokin’ Goat™ is made with this milk, which is naturally high in fat and protein, giving the cheese a creamy, elastic texture. It is naturally smoked over beech wood a week after production.

The rind pattern evokes the palm leaves that were historically used as molds during production.

All ingredients, including pasteurized goat's milk and production take place on the island of Fuerteventura, part of the Canary Islands archipelago of Spain.
