A cheese to you!  Very nice rind on that one.  You'll find these much better than most you get in the store.  The store bought ones are usually "stablised", which means they also include a thermophillic culture.  This results in a cheese that has a longer shelf life, and it doesn't go as gooey as a mesophillic one and they also don't develop as deep a flavour either.  They are ok, but I much prefer these (of course, I'm sure some people prefer the stablised version, it's subjective after all, but that doesn't mean they're not wrong! :) )

I've had more with a cleaner palette. Plus it was a bit warmer so more of the flavours came through.

Creamy and buttery, earth tones, a bit a sweetness with a slightly nutty finish. Very pleasant mouth feel...

Man, color me impressed.

Second wheel opened on Sunday. Firmer than the first, but still soft. Just as tasty. Rave reviews...
