Spenwood - known to the family at cheesegeek as 'Spenny', is a barnstorming British take on a classic Pecorino. At 6 months, it is nutty in a more sweet milky way, so care-free and happy go lucky. As it ages, one starts getting a bit more of a toasted caramel style hazelnut nuttiness, as we start moving further from those Pecorino comparisons. Once it gets beyond 9 months, Spenny takes on a different persona entirely. Gone is that fresh-faced, sweet little cheese, and in its place is the slightly moody teen. It brings meaty to the table and a savoury saltiness. It has been described as roast lamb in the past..sure, we can get on board with that. It also gets harder, drier, and has a definite tang. This is when you start getting into 'grate me on some pasta' territory. No matter how you eat it, Spenny is undeniably delicious!
