Don Juan Manchego Aged 1 Year Black Coat (Sold by the Pound)

PLEASE REFER TO OUR SHIPPING POLICY FOR PERISHABLE PRODUCTS.

True Manchego is made from 100% sheep's milk and made only in the La Mancha region of central Spain. Cheeses from Spain are commonly made from sheep's milk because most of the territory is rocky and dry?unfriendly to cows, but suitable to raising goats and sheep. The abundance of wild herbs on Central Spain's grazing lands gives 12 month Manchego a special taste and aroma. Its flavor is zesty and exuberant while its texture is firm, but not dry. Manchego can be recognized by the herringbone pattern etched into its rind. Underneath the inedible rind, the interior is ivory colored with few small holes. It has a very mild floral aroma. At 12 months, the paste is firm, but very smooth. It has a gentle, nutty flavor and finish.
