Sharpham Rustic with herbs   

This is a beautiful semi-hard cheese with added garlic and herbs, made in a colander, which gives it a lovely space ship like shape. It is matured for 6-8 weeks giving a youthful cheese with a rich creamy texture. It is yellowy gold in colour with a gentle, mild flavour and a natural rind which forms during the maturation process resulting in a delightful white crust.

A difference of opinion. 5/5 from one taster and 1/5 from one who doesn't like dry, sharp cheeses.

Beautifully balanced flavour - the herbs were lovely but didn't overpower the cheese - just right!

Crumbly and fluffy. Dry but moist. Good level of garlic. My family loved it

Nothing special. Not very 'herby' but really nice toasted.

This is a very subtle tasting creamy cheese with a gentle herb taste which is not overwhelming. Overall a good balance.

We had divided views at our cheese & wine evening - everything from "wouldn't give it house room" (too mild) to "wonderful". Wife and I thought it had better flavour and we preferred the firm to commercial 'Le Roulet' which it resembles in herbiness.

Perhaps too moist. Less garlic and more herbs would improve it.

Young Wensleydale texture, dry, creamy flavour but over-powered slightly by the herbs and (especially) garlic.

The herbs make this an attractive cheese.
