As the day closes, the cheese world has taken the time out today to appreciate and celebrate the raw milk cheeses of the world!
I chose one of my favorites, and original raw milk player, Roquefort.
A super creamy smooth raw sheep’s milk from France who’s roots run deep in cheese history. After sitting for about an hour at room temperature the paste is nearly spoonable with crumbly tendencies. The flavor is rich and earthy with a lactic tang. It melts on your tongue like butter leaving a little salty crunch. The sheep’s milk gamey flavor comes through on the exhale.
I am pairing it up tonight with a gift from a good friend who recently traveled to the UK. Signatory Vintage 13 year old scotch from an unnamed Orkney Distillery. The Orkney islands are in the northern most region of Scotland. This dram is honey sweet with fresh salty brine and a subtle peaty smoke.
Both scotch and blue cheese can be incredibly aggressive, but I have found that when paired correctly they bring the best out of each other. The aggressive tang and barny flavors of the cheese seem to cling to the smoke and brine in the whiskey leaving only sweet clover honey and vanilla. Likewise, the strong notes of the whiskey seem to subdue the blue leaving a milky smooth fresh cream note.
Call me crazy but it’s almost vanilla ice cream left lingering after the aggression.
Cheers my friends! And Happy International Raw Milk Cheese Day!
