Stinking Bishop - Reviews

Stinking Bishop   

A washed rind cheese first made by Cisterian monks in Dymock. It has a sticky orange rind with a pungent spirited aroma. The texture can vary from firm to soft depending on the season. It takes its name from the variety of pear used in the Perry wash.

I have tasted this cheeses several times before - despite its oozy spreading nature and somewhat powerful smell it is surprisingly mild in taste.

This one is not for me. Lovely texture, though not sure about the after taste.

A fine cheese - appreciated by French chef, so that must say something.

I've liked it before and I liked it again! Yes, it is smelly (Post Office put my box into a sealed plastic bag!)m but the flavour is great.

Less odorous than expected, not unpleasant, texture like a ripe brie, gentle flavour with a hint of bitterness on the finish.
Interesting

Underwhelming - a Hollywood cheese! Rind and centre faded into one another. Texture of Brie, new taste. Smell very confusing.
