A hard Spanish cheese made from a mixture of goat, cow and sheep's milk for a sweet, tangy, hearty flavor. Iberico is very similar to Manchego in appearance as it also has the characteristic dark ivory, inedible black rind with an embossed basket-weave pattern as well as a firm, dry textured interior. Its main difference is its sweet tanginess and somewhat milder flavor.
Serve Iberico with quince paste, Spanish Jamón, chorizos or grated on pasta.
Pair Iberico with Ribera del Duero or Tawny Port.
