Westcombe Red - Reviews

Westcombe Red   

This semi-hard cheese is made using unpasteurised milk and is similar in colour and texture to a good Red Leicester. Whilst the cheese is in the maturation process it is wrapped in muslin and matured for 4-5 months. Westcombe has a depth of flavour that has gone from many Red Leicesters.

Nutty, sweet lush cheese -fantastic! Brings back the memories of red Leicester and onion sandwiches of my childhood.

Bland, earthy, lacking flavour - not our 'cup of tea'.

Nice colour and texture. A slight tang when eaten raw which slightly detracted from my overall enjoyment, otherwise unremarkable.

Honestly thought this was Red Leicester until I ried it. Far better and the taste lasts longer.

Firm texture, strong earthy taste that lingers on the tongue. A fiesty cheese with character, certainly, not bland.

Excellent when eaten on its own with an apple. Slightly overpowering with bread or biscuits.

A split jury on this cheese. Some thought it tastes like mould (2/5). Others, that it was the nicest strange cheese ever tasted - a cheeky little number!(4/5)

Waxy, smooth, better than the average Red Leicester. It is said that Red Leicester is the best for cheese on toast. We didn't try it but it should be good
