Is the red primarily in the areas that were pierced?  I had a problem once where B linens entered my cheese in the pierced holes.

Definitely not good. In any case, something of the sort happened to me with a " stilton" which was neglected. At the end I scraped off all the " weird" moulds and added Cream Cheese and made a spread, tons of spread actually. Both my wife and myself and the various friends I shared it with I have seen since, and they still are on speaking terms with me, so I guess it went rather well.

I seem to recall that this was the cheese you made on purpose with red white and blue?  So washed rind ( red)
Blue mold ( blue ) and white just normal curd( white)

Then if that is the case seems like you hit it dead on to me . 

Did the flavor blend or are they distinct ?
