This cheese from León has a strong flavor, both aromatic and very sharp. It is buttery to the palate. Perhaps it is the least strong and aggressive of the “picones” (sharp cheeses). It is a mature cheese, from semi-cured to cured, made from cow’s and/or goat’s milk. The rind is rough and irregular, gray in color with little red and blue spots. The interior is compact, though soft, and is a light yellow color. Throughout the cheese there will be galleries and small cavities where a white and greenish-blue mold grows. It is irregularly cylindrical and presented in aluminum paper. Pieces will weigh around two kilograms (4.4 pounds).
