Original

Producer: Moncedillo Origin: Castilla-Leon, Spain

Moncedillo Original has a semi-soft paste and a buttery and unctuous texture, with flavors reminiscent of mushrooms when eaten with the rind. This lovely cheese has a lactic, milky flavor with notes of sweet cereal and fruit balanced with salt (a result of the vegetarian—thistle —rennet used in production) that is followed by a slightly roasted hazelnut after taste. Approximately three liters of milk are needed for each wheel. After coagulation, the curds are gently ladled into traditional basket molds and left to self-drain, and turned frequently in the first few hours as it takes on the basket pattern for its striking rind.
