Oscypek (Oszczypek) is an oval-shaped, smoked cheese produced in the Tatra mountains of Poland. While making this cheese using unpasteurised salted sheep's milk, some amount of cow's or goat's milk is added.

The cheese has a salty flavour with a smoky aroma. To fully appreciate this cheese, it is best to accompany it with beer.
