A naturally rinded, blue-veined, hand-made soft cheese, made with pasteurised milk. When fresh, at 3-4 weeks, it has a relatively mild blue flavour but the IOW Blue accelerates quickly to develop a much spikier character than when young. Being naturally rinded, it is covered in green, blue, grey and white moulds, giving the cheese a depth of character, while the variety of surface moulds that grow on the rind ensure it stands out on any cheeseboard.
At once complex and balanced, savoury and mellow, this farmhouse revival of a classic British cheese is full of flavour without any aggressive acidity. the texture is firm, chewy and pleasantly moist.
With a very distinctive ammonite shaped round appearance, and covered in an attractive natural mould-ripened rustic rind, the deep yellow moist interior is spread with dark blue-green veins. It has a rich blue taste, smooth buttery texture with a melt-in-the-mouth flavour without the harshness associated with some blue cheeses.
