Valdeón is a cheese with a blue veined paste, made all year round with cow’s and goat’s milk. It has a rough, irregular rind in dark grey shades with little red and bluish marks, the cheese are wrapped in Sycamore leaves to protect the rind. The paste has a soft texture and a pale yellow color and it is full of small cavities where a white and greenish blue mould is concentrated. Its flavour is strong, a little bit spicy, salty, pronounced and long lasting. Valdeón cheese is buttery on the palate and very aromatic.
