Soft rennet-set cheese with spruce-bark belt, made in the style of French Vacherin/Mont d’Or. The flavour is mild, grassy and mushroomy when young, intensifying and developing earthy, meaty, woodsy, umami flavours as it ripens. The texture also develops with age, starting off semi-soft & pliable when young, but developing a more flowing, ozzy, creamy texture with age. Mottled rind and mould on bark belt is perfectly safe to eat and a natural & delicious aspect of this cheese.
