The cheese may be aged from 4 months to over a year and is considered quite young when sold at 4 to 5 months. It has a somewhat mild to strong taste (depending on the age), that is slightly nutty to fruity in flavor

It is a good melting cheese for baked dishes, fondues or hot cheese sandwiches. And, it is often used in cold sandwiches with meat, as a cheese grated over vegetables, soups and salads, or as a dessert cheese.
