Jasper Hill Bayley Hazen Blue
About this item
*World's Best Unpasteurized Cheese at 2014 World Cheese Awards*
Mateo and Andy Kehler have been producing cheese for little more than 5 years, but the complexity and sophistication of their products speaks to the incredible amount of research and training they have undergone as they strive to perfect their cheeses. A medium strong and relatively dry blue cheese aged for 5 months, Bayley Hazen Blue delivers a complex flavor. The blue is upfront and slightly peppery, but the finish is long and creamy. This cheese works well with port and is best served as part of multi cheese course.
Bayley Hazen is named after an old military road that traverses the Northeast Kingdom. The road, commissioned by General George Washington was built to carry troops to fight the English on a Canadian front. Though no battle ever took place, the road brought Greensboro, VT its first settlers and continues to be used.
