Leonora is an artisan, semi-soft, pasteurised, Alpine goats' milk cheese produced in the Spanish province of León. It has a rich and creamy centre, a natural mouldy rind and is covered by a dusting of ash to add a delicate smokey flavour to it. The cheese is white and compact with a complex flavour and a long, lingering finish. Of medium to strong strength, it is soft and herbaceous with slights notes of lemon which highlights its perfect acidity and saltiness. The cheese is matured for about 3 months.
