- When fresh, it has a goaty, soft and sweet aroma but as the cheese continues to mature, and the flavour will be complex, herbal and nutty with a very salty balance, becoming strong and spicy
Strength and texture
- Maturation: Between 2 weeks and 4 months. Mild to medium strength. After 2 weeks of maturation the rins begins to form the moulds that define this cheese and after 4 months, it becomes scaly but still very tasty
