Tasting Notes

This creamy cheese is lightly laced with blue and coloured with annatto. The orange contrasts beautifully with the rich blue veins producing a cheese not just a pleasure to the eyes but also the taste buds making a flash of colour great on any cheese board. Being described as more mellow than Stilton and edging towards qualities of a Cheshire. Over the course of maturation, this cheese develops a natural orange-brown rind and has an earthy but tangy aroma. The flavour is strong and sharp, with a metallic edge coming through from the starter cultures.
