Old Winchester is nutty, tangy, salty, and reminds us of an amazing Gouda, Cheddar and Parmesan all at the same time! This is what makes Old Winchester such a unique and great cheese, and finds it a place on our Top Cheeses list. At first sight and taste, you will think it looks like a hard Gouda, just slightly more crumbly in appearance and a bit paler. Gouda is also the first taste that comes through, with somewhat nutty, deep caramel-like flavours going on. Then suddenly, that disappears, and you get a tangy cheddar smack. Unexpected! To finish, if that wasn't enough, it ends with an extremely savoury, slightly salty Parmesan-like taste profile, which if it wasn't so scrumptious would just be weird. There are not many kinds of cheese that can meddle with your tastebuds like this, or be in so many places at one time. Old Winchester does it for fun... an absolute delicious cheese excitement.

Delivery is FREE and it comes in a climate control box (the only in the industry) that comes with a 48 hour freshness guarantee. If that wasn't enough, we also add an insert that will talk you through the info on the cheeses, tasting notes and a scorecard to help you make the very most of your festive cheesegeek delivery.

During checkout, you will be able to select your preferred delivery date. This is great if you're buying as a gift or are organising your cheese in advance. The cheese will be packed in chilled, insulated boxes (that look great!) and will always be prepared on the day it is dispatched. A few other handy pointers:

- We use DHL nationwide and Packfleet within the M25

- Please use the delivery date you have selected as a guide rather than a guarantee.

- Your cheese will arrive in the best condition. It will have been prepared freshly and will not have been with our courier beyond our maximum of 48hrs

- You will receive delivery notifications for when your order is dispatched that mean you can track when it’s in transit

If you aren’t in for your delivery, this won’t matter. Our couriers will leave your cheese in you designated safe place in our climate controlled packaging.

We’re a small business working with an (incredible) perishable product. For advice on delivery or any cheesy questions, get in touch via the live chat or on hello@thecheesegeek.com
