    The cheese itself has a pungent (almost dirsty shoe like) aroma but the taste of this cheese is sublime. IT smooth and creamy, with a mild taste. It went amazingly with quince paste and crusty bread. Its a must try!

    Apparently the favourite of Napoleon, and I can see why.

    This cheese is the best, smoothest, and yummiest soft centered cheese I have tasted in a long time. Although a slight smell once you have tasted the creamy smooth centre that just melts in your mouth.
