KRINOS 100% Goat Milk Feta and Spanakopita (Spanakotyropita)

Alright, I am a total a noob when it comes to cheese, let alone feta. I understand that there's quite a variety of places in Toronto that one can get hands on good quality feta. Which I plan on exploring at some point.

For the mean time, I chose a shorter path for my suburban convenience by purchasing one at Loblaw's nearby; 100% Goat Milk Feta Cheese from Krinos for the purpose of making Spanakopita, that is. I found the goatiness way too pungent for my palate, but I couldn't detect any of it when I tasted the finished mixture, so that was definitely a bit of relief.

The problem is, I have absolutely no idea what GREAT TRADITIONAL feta should taste like! So, here are my questions to anybody out there that knows... is Krinos 100% g.m. feta worth my money for me to keep using it? How about their 100% s.m. feta? (I haven't tried their s.m. feta yet, but, thinking about it now, it makes more sense that I should've used this one instead since it's usually made from sheep milk, I believe?) If both of them are a no-no, do share the goods, I mean better alternatives in Toronto.

Thanks a mega bunch in advance!
