Raw Cow Milk, Jacobs & Brichford, Connersville, Indiana
This is a semi-soft, washed rind inspired by the cheeses of Northern Italy, and it's an absolute stunner in terms of texture and flavor. The golden interior is downright spreadable and the flavor pops with a bright tropical note upfront and a salty, beefy finish. The aroma is reminiscent of bread dough proofing. Over time the flavor sweetens and the funk intensifies while the paste grows smooth and silky.
