It got its name from its exterior, it is rubbed with fir bark. Mild, creamy with a fine tannin flavour and spicy aroma. Each individual cheese is cared for daily, i.e. rubbed with salt water. This creates a smear layer that accelerates the ripening process. In addition, each cheese is rubbed with fir bark, which gives this soft cheese its typical aroma.
