Somerset Blue - Reviews

Somerset Blue   

A full fat unpressed but firm blue cheese with a predominantly white mould rind. Rich, nutty and smooth. The creamy yellow colour and the buttery flavour are derived from the Jersey milk. It is matured longer than Exmoor Jersey Blue and is thus bluer and stronger but just as rich and buttery with perhaps a hint of herbs.
Ian is pleased that this cheese won the 'best blue' award at the World Jersey Cheese Awards 2008.

Very pleasant but a bit too harsh. Good with cake!

Rating: 3 / 5


Some of us loved the mouldy tang but others thought it was too strong - but everyone liked the underlying flavour and good texture. Bit of a 'Marmite' reaction!

good texture and flavour - a bit strong for me.

Sour and good. It echoes of stilton and burns real good.
