La Siberia cheese
La Siberia aka Castilblanco is produced in the area of La Siberia in the Badajoz region of Extremadura.
Produced from goats’ milk, this high fat cheese is pressed and uncooked. It is cylindrical in shape and weighs between 1kg and 1.5kg. After a month, the cheese can be immersed in oil for preservation.
The rind is thin, but dry and defined and is pale yellow, unless oiled in which case it is bright yellow. The interior is compact and ivory white in colour. The flavour is mild but develops an acidity and is slightly salty. It is oily on the palate and has a nutty aftertaste.
