One of the best "new traditional" British cheeses.
One of the best of the new generation of traditional British cheeses, an all-organic cheese made by Simon & Tim Jones up in the hills off Britain’s North Sea Coast from their herd of Holstein-Friesian cows. We picked up some particularly well-aged wheels that are some of the best I've ever tried. If the name is unfamiliar to you, Lincolnshire Poacher is basically an English Farmhouse Cheddar with what you might call a Swiss accent in the making. Made from unpasteurized milk, the Poacher is big flavored, nutty and buttery with just a tingle of Swissness in the nose. A lovely, long aged cheese making its mark here in North America. Supplies limited.
What a complex cheese! It starts out fruity, like biting into a ripe peach or a juicy pineapple and then the flavor gets savory, ending with notes of hazelnut and salted butter. Great stuff. I've been tasting this cheese from the time we first started selling it here at Zingerman's Mail Order several years ago and I must admit that this is hands down, the best wheel of Poacher I've ever tasted. Get some while it lasts! The wheel open right now was made for us in the fall of 2010.
