Leonora A Fuego was created by cheesemaker Oscar Fernando Marcos Gonzalez after the success of his soft-ripened goat’s milk cheese, Leonora. He adds a layer of smoky Spanish Pimentón de la Vera to the outside of the cheese before aging it for 40 days. The cheese is dense and creamy. As it ripens, a cream line will start to form inside the rind. The flavor of this cheese can be split into three phases: it starts out lush and lemony, with flavors of fresh goat’s milk, balancing acidity and richness. Then the slightly smoky flavor of the pimentón comes through, which finishes with a subtle spiciness on the tongue.
