I have taken another washed rind cheese out of storage. I have been looking forward to cutting this wheel because from all the washed rind cheeses I made, this one looks the nicest. It hadn't sagged and the rind had dried nicely and it shows a deep dark orange color.
Why this is so, I am not sure. As mentioned before, I did not keep proper notes on individual cheeses from the same batch. I had to much going on. In retrospect, I think I might have pressed this one a little.
It has a similar taste as the other smears but is not as salty and has a fuller nuttier body.
