April 2021 Cheese Selection tasting notes
Smokehouse Cheddar, BC
A classic smoked cheddar from The Village Cheese Co. in Armstrong, BC. Unlike many of its industrially produced counterparts, this cheddar is not artificially flavoured, but actually smoked. The natural smoking gives it a subtle smokiness while not overpowering the flavour of the cheese. Wonderful on its own, but also fabulous for melting over burgers, in sandwiches or into soups!
Hercule de Charlevoix, Quebec
L'Hercule is produced in Charlevoix, Quebec and takes its name from the French Soldier, Jean-Baptiste Grenon, whose nickname was Hercules of the North, due to his astounding strength. The milk used to make this cheese comes from a single herd of about 30 Jersey cows, from a farm about 1km away from Laiterie Charlevoix Dairy. Its style is similar to the Swiss and French Alpine cheeses. It is made with raw milk and while not a strong cheese, it has a rich flavour with notes of nuts and a slight sweetness. This is a great cheese for Quebec's Unibroue beers.
Morbier is a semi-soft cows' milk cheese from France, named after the small village of Morbier in Franche-Comte. It is ivory coloured, soft and slightly elastic, and is immediately recognizable by the distinctive, thin black layer of ash separating the cheese horizontally through the middle. With a yeasty aroma and mildly sweet taste, this cheese pairs nicely with a lovely Pinot Noir or a Gewetztraminer.
