This square cheese is soft and yielding with a white bloomy rind, once cut into it reveals an ivory coloured interior.
The flavour is mushroom and creamy with a hint of lemons. It comes wrapped in parchment paper with a red wax seal. This Cheese dates back to the time of Admiral Lord Nelson who, in 1801, was sent some by his father as a gift. It was recorded that Nelson’s sweet heart was ‘gratified’ by the flavour of this cheese!
Made from pasteurised cow's milk, this cheese is a four inch square and weighs approximately 250 grams.
