The cheese is made from goats’-milk and sold in small cylindrical units. It tastes slightly salty. Aged to 4 weeks, the blue-grey rind becomes knobby and the moist, almost clay-like interior has a slight sweetness. Along with cheese, the mould is often eaten which has comparatively stronger flavour.
