Shropshire Cheese is a soft, crumbly cheese with a strong, distinctive flavor and a slightly tangy aroma. Similar to Stilton though sharper and creamier. This blue cheese has a definite sour or wine-like tang with orange and lemon undertones, but the aftertaste is sweet. In a period of 10-12 weeks, Ilchester Shropshire Cheese forms an orange-brown, natural rind and smooth texture. This vibrant orange and characteristic blue cheese marbling make it a quite dramatic addition to any cheese plate or appetizer platter.
