Description:
Ossau-Iraty is rather medium-soft, light in color and has very complex yet delicately smooth flavors. Ossau-Iraty is complex and includes an edible slightly white-moldy tart rind. This is a creamy, not bitter, not overly sweet, perhaps slightly nutty cheese. It finishes richly and smoothly.
