This natural rinded barrel shaped cheese is made at Menallack farm in Cornwall. The dense compressed texture inside has a mild creamy burnt caramel taste becoming more pronounced with age.

Good clean fresh taste and crumbly texture. Was much appreciated by French friend who is a cook, so that says something!
