Mahón Curado, the 6 month version of this cheese boasts a certain sharpness, and its lemony, salty flavours evince the rural Mediterranean seascape. It is an uncooked pressed cheese paste, with parallelepiped shape with rounded edges. Its rind contains a hard, crumbly cheddar-like texture and darkens as the wheels age. At peak, Mahón is tangy, intense and delicious. Pair this cheese with Madeira or Tempranillo.
