Look: Depending on the versions, most likely ivory and soft brown tones and a speckled cloth rind and a rough textured rind under the cloth
Touch: The paste has natural cheddar-smoothness
Smell: Ocean spray, slight barn, grass, lactic, vegetal
Taste: Slightly buttery flavours are mingled with fruity essences and caramel undertones. A true clothbound cheddar can be sharp or mild but is always strong in natural cheese spirit
Food:Sliced red apples and pears are the perfect carrier for this simple but magnificent cheese but for the more adventurous a sweet balsamic glaze drizzled over a mouthful will bring out the caramel.
Beverage: Dark beers and your favorite ales including a cherry lager if the intent is to sip.
Look: Has an ivory, almost yellow paste and a stamped, oatmeal coloured rind
Touch: A bouncy soft interior
Smell: Wild honey, tropical fruit, pure butter
Taste: A creamy finish full of fresh cut grass, coconut meat, flowers and a luxuriant salt with a surprise smokiness on the finish
Food: Fresh or dried figs, sugared nuts such as pecans and almonds and rustic crunchy breads
Beverages: New Zealand Pinot Noir, Cotes-du-Rhone or St. Joseph
