A truckle of hard cheese made with sheep's milk, similar to cheddar bit more moist. It has an ivory paste and a hard crusty rind with red blotches, developing moulds as it ripens. This modern cheese is made from April to October with raw milk. Affinage is seven to nine months. This firm cheese has an aroma of old leather while the flavour is nutty and aromatic, with a caramel tone.
