A testament to British cheesemaking, and a nod to continental cheesemaking, this is a washed rind cheese destined for great things. When slightly younger, the flavours are fresher and crisper, with just a hint of fruitiness. But ripened on, it develops deep, savoury, meaty flavours reminiscent of the classic French and Belgian monastic cheeses. However, the cider wash brings an astonishing fermented fruity funk, that balances the savoury flavours perfectly, all playing out amidst the most tantalising creamy, decadent, luxurious texture.
A modern take on history, and a cheese for the ages.
