At first sight, you might be fooled into thinking this Roncal was a manchego. But once the flavor hits your palate, you’ll notice it’s gamier and more intense. The hard, grainy, and straw-colored paste is packed with wild, barnyardy notes and a sheepy tang, along with herbaceous and grassy undertones. Murray’s Marcona Almonds are a hearty complement to its robust flavor.
Allergens: Eggs, Milk
