    Queso Valdeón cheese is a spectacular blue cheese made in the Valdeón Valley, located in the heart of the Picos de Europa on the Leonese side, Castille and Leon. It is a blue-veined cheese, made all year round with cow's and goat's milk. It is matured for a long time, until it reaches a point between semi-cured and cured.

    The rind is rough and irregular, with dark grey tones and small red and bluish spots. The paste has a soft texture and a pale yellow colour, full of small cavities where white and blue-green mould is concentrated.

    Its taste is intense, salty and spicy, more pronounced when the ripening time is longer. Good persistence of flavours.
