Etxegarai Smoked Raw Sheep
The name Etxegarai refers to the old farmhouses located high up in the mountains of the Basque country. Shepherds used to store cheese near their nighttime fires, giving the wheels their characteristic smoky flavor. It is lightly sharp and fruity with a pronounced sheepy flavor and mild aromas of smoke.
