Mahon is named after the port of Mahon on the Spanish island of Minorca Spain. Mahon is a cow's milk cheese, and ranges from soft to hard depending on its age, with a generally buttery, sharp and pleasantly salty flavor. The cheese is hand-rubbed with butter, paprika, and/or oil, giving the rind its characteristic color. This one is aged for 90-120 days, which is considered to be a semi-matured cheese.
