This Week's Tasting: January 17, 2020
Every week at Dairymaids we select six cheeses to include in our free cheese tasting.
Whenever we are open, we are tasting cheese. We stock over 150!
Drunken Monk is a Trappist-style cheese from the Eagle Mountain Dairy in Lipan, Texas. Cheesemaker Dave Eagle washes the young wheels with American-made whiskey once per week, giving the cheese a boozy aroma and finish. Raw milk from Brown Swiss cows is sourced from a nearby producer and provides a rich, creamy texture and grassy, buttery flavors.
Other cheeses on our tasting plate this week:
Little Hosmer, a small Brie-style from the Cellars at Jasper Hill in Vermont.
Patacabra, a washed-curd goat's milk cheese from Spain.
Quadrello di Bufala, a washed buffalo's milk cheese from Quattro Portoni in Italy.
Ogleshield, a Raclette-style from the Manor Farm in the United Kingdom.
Dunbarton Blue, an English-style cheddar pierced with blue mold from Roelli Cheese in Wisconsin.
Our wine of the week is Euli, a Grignolino from Cantine Valpane in Italy. We taste wine from 10am to 1pm on Saturdays.
We're also sampling a Triple Berry Conserve from American Spoon in Michigan.
