Mahon is produced on the Mediterranean island of Menorca in the Balearics. Although it is a small island, Menorca produces enough cheese to make Mahon Spain’s second most popular cheese next to Manchego. Made from pasteurized cow’s milk, Mahon comes in large squares of about 6 pounds. Ripened in underground caves for at least 60 days, it has a bold, magnificent flavor that could never be called mild. The yellowish-orange rind conceals a soft, slightly salty and decidedly spicy interior. Our Mahon is the young version, aged for about 2 months. This unique cheese is a must try for any cheese lover!
