Aged Caerphilly - Reviews

Aged Caerphilly   

The high quality of milk used results in this wonderful full flavoured unpasteurised caerphilly. It is aged for around six weeks in a cellar under the farmhouse at Westcombe Dairy. A natural spring flowing through the cellar keeps the humidity high and a plethora of amazing moulds leads to formation of the beautiful natural rind. The zesty tones of the younger cheese are retained alongside some amazingly mellow flavours and a wonderfully soft texture, particularly near the rind.

I liked the contrast of the creamy fresh cheese and the slightly damp rind. Good with a salad or a cracker, or even on its own with pickle.

Rating: 4 / 5


This cheese is one that grows on you. The whole family kept coming back for more!
