Packwood - Reviews


This is a mild but full flavoured cows milk cheese, made using milk from a local Dorset herd. The cheese maker described it ‘as cheddar used to be’ when it was all made by hand.

Smooth textured, creamy and subtle flavour. Mild and gentle.
Eat it on its own.

Dull. If cheddar really tasted like this it would never have become popular.Tasteless and rubbery.

Definitely put paid to the idea that "mild" = "no flavour" - this one is delicious and very creamy.

This one needs a lot more work. I found it bland and rubbery, sorry!

We were a bit non-plussed by this, expecting something more flavoursome: it was pleaant rather than fantastic. It looks - and tastes - like a washed and waxy cheese. Sorry, not really one for us.
