Have you tried the Catalan Tupí cheese?

Tupí is a traditional Catalan cheese made from cow’s, goat’s or sheep’s milk mixed with liqueur or olive oil. The cheese is fermented in a clay pot (called tupí, hence the name) and has an intense, spicy, tangy and fruity taste. It does not need to be refrigerated, so it is traditionally consumed straight from the pot. Tupí is often flavored with garlic, and to dampen its strong flavor, it is sometimes mixed with honey, butter, or tomato sauce. This cheese is recommended to be served with bread and a glass of strong wine.
