Also called Queso de los Puertos de Aliva, and coming under the protection of DOP Quesucos de Liébana, this soft to semi-hard cheese is produced from a mixture of cows’ ewes’ and goats’ milk in the area of Aliva.

A smoked cheese, with a limited production, it is cylindrical in shape and has a golden yellow rind with greenish- brown spots. The rind also has squares or diamond patterns on its exterior which is caused by the mould in which it is made..

The interior of the cheese is slightly firm, but easy to cut and has a bone white colour. The wood traditionally used in the smoking process is thejuniper, which is reminiscent of the time when it was produced in shepherds’ huts. The process takes between a day and a day and a half.
