Lincolnshire PoacherNeal's Yard Dairy
About this item
SOLD BY WEIGHT.
Produced in Lincolnshire by Simon and Tim Jones, this is a hard, complex cheese made in the cheddar style with Alpine influences. It is made only with milk from the Jones brothers own herd of Holstein cows. Poacher has a rich, long lasting flavor with sweet, nutty notes and a sharp tang that sometimes tastes a bit like pineapples. The texture is smooth, close, dense and creamy. Similar to a traditional Somerset Cheddar, though tweaked a bit to produce a distinctly different cheese. Aged for 18-24 months, it is sharp, a little spicy and a touch fruity. Pair it with an English style ale or cider.
