Description:
This semi-soft cheese is made from cow's milk. It is lightly pressed, then smoked and has a supple, open consistency and an attractive, polished rind, which ranges in color from honey to reddish-brown. The smoke gives the cheese a woody taste to add to the buttery quality and slight acidity from the milk.
