Torta Del Casar
The pudding-like paste of the Torta del Casar is so gooey, you’ll need a spoon to enjoy it properly. Made from raw sheep’s milk, it develops a semi-firm outer crust. Its aroma—sweet honey mixed with a distinct vegetal funkiness—will get your mouth watering. Buttery notes, roasted artichoke, and a hint of brine and bitterness mingle together. It brims with complex flavor. This is a cheese worth savoring, so spoon some onto slices of fresh bread and complement it with a glass of crisp sauvignon blanc.
Each Torta Del Casar is approximately 1.1 lb. Unless noted otherwise, Murray's cheeses sold by the lb. ship in multiple 0.5 lb increments. To request a whole wheel, or an intact portion, please contact the Murray’s team at email@example.com at least 72 hours prior to the date of shipment.
