Cow's Milk Cheese
Mahón is a crumbly, dense cheese that is sold at different stages of the aging process, from two months to over a year. Young Mahón (aged less than four months) is semi-firm and mild. The cheese can be buttery, tangy, and salty. Wheels of Mahón that have been aged four months or more take on a saltier, herbal, more complex flavor and a noticeably tangy finish. Wheels that are aged for a year or more have a texture similar to Parmesan and an intense caramelized, salty flavor.
