Leonora is a goat's milk cheese produced in the mountainous region of Leon in north western Spain. Made from the pasteurized milk of Alpine goats, Leonora is a velvety bloomy rind log with a white, slightly flaky paste that is covered in ash. Initially, the texture is very smooth and dense but starts to become runny, translucent and break down just under the rind as the cheese ages. When young, Leonora's flavours are balanced, bright, creamy and lactic with bright grass and lemon overtones. As it ripens, it can become strong and intense especially just below the rind. Enjoy the cheese with a little dessert wine and some dried meat.

One of my worst cheese experiences. Heavy on the tongue, unpleasant taste and aftertaste. Not sure if I got a bad cut but it is going in the trash. And I love cheese!!

I had the Leonora a fuego (paprika or so on the outside) and it was excellent! One of my favorites
