Traditionally, the orange rind on Mahon comes from being rubbed in butter, paprika and oil. When a cheese is aged, the taste intensifies and becomes bolder and nuttier. Typical Queso Mahon is aged in the caves of Menorca for two months. Reserva is aged for at least a year. It maintains a slightly briny, sharp taste, but now becomes hard and granular; on a par with parmesan. Reserva can be grated over pasta or served as a table cheese with olive oil, black pepper and tarragon. A robust Spanish red wine can be overwhelming to young Mahon, but the Reserva definitely has the strength for this pairing. We also enjoy it with a cold glass of beer, hazelnuts, and dried fruit after a hard day's work.
Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
