December Cheese of the Month: Garcia Baquero Cinco Lanzas

This is Garcia Baquero’s flagship cheese. Using century-old artisan traditions, Cinco Lanzas is made using a secret recipe from Garcia Baquero’s Master Cheesemakers. The cheese is aged more than 16 months, and the delicate coupage — or blend — of sheep, goat and cow’s milk create this one-of-a-kind, complex cheese.

At first taste, you will reward your palate with a multitude of flavors. Aromas of roasted nuts, caramel sweetness, nuances of thyme and rosemary, and a surprise finish of toasted cinnamon bring this firm and compact textured cheese to life. The aromas blend with buttery flavors and the cheese finishes on the palate with an explosion of flavors characteristic of very aged, cellar-ripened cheese.

New to the United States in 2012, this cheese will only be available at selected times in the future. So we are excited to be able to offer it now as our December Cheese of the Month.
