When the artisan fromagerie, Francisco Morán and Sons, decided to expand its cheese production, it found that the very best way to produce this typical Extremaduran cheese was through the ways of its past generations. In this way, they produced an artisan cheese with raw sheep and goat milk in the same style as the Extremaduran Torta.
This product, which could be categorized as a cake, is ripened in three to four months until it is molded into a round. It was named "El Abuelo Santos" in recognition of tradition and past generations.
This cheese has an intense flavor, a touch of spice, and a compact, buttery texture. Once aged, it is marinated with virgin olive oil and then presented as a cheese wheel surrounded with a cloth.
