Mohant spada med mehke sire. Ima značilen vonj in okus. Poleti, ko sir hitreje zori, ga izdelujejo iz polnomastnega mleka, pozimi pa iz posnetega kravjega mleka. Poleti, ko so temperature višje, zori najmanj šest tednov, pozimi pa do tri mesece.
Sir mohant v Bohinju pogosto postrežejo s krompirjem v oblicah.
