Whisky and Cheese No 2: Juicy and delightful
Spicy & Dry
Soft cows milk
Fudgey, is what everyone says when they first put St Jude in their mouths, not a flavour descriptor but a texture, a surprisingly firm and dense texture for what looks like a meltingly creamy cheese. The whisky cuts through this texture creating a delightful moussy mouthfeel. As to the flavour, St Jude is all about rich, heavy cream, barely cheesy at all, with just a hint of earth and cowiness to give it some edge. With the volatile rum and raisin flavour of the Spicy and Dry profile the whole experience is like a kind of funky ice-cream for grown ups.
For cheese tasting corporate events at your business offices or in one of an eclectic range of classic and contemporary venues in London visit The Cheese Tasting Company or send Ned an email at ned@CheeseTastingCo.UK
You can buy St Jude in cheese shops and delis all over the UK. My favourite is Neal’s Yard Dairy.
