product description

One of the oldest and most widespread Asturian cheeses, both in terms of its considerable production and for its wide manufacturing area. Its name comes from the "bable" Asturian dialect and means 'choking cake', reflecting its unusual texture as it hits the taster's palate and pharynx. It is usually tasted as a "tapa" or dessert, generally accompanied by bread.

A pesar de la corta vida de los quesos Rebollín, pues tan sólo lleva 1 año operando bajo la Denominación de Origen protegida Afuega´l Pitu ya ha sido galardonado en 3 ocasiones:

paprika cheese

this cheese has a great taste of paprika and the cheese is so good that it melts in your mouth (if fine cut) and the aftertaste is filled with paprika and cheese flavor
