Saxelby Cheese Share: June 25

The goats frolick at Consider Bardwell Farm in Vermont.

Cheese: Rupert (raw cow’s milk)

Farm: Consider Bardwell Farm (West Pawlet, VT)

Amount: 1/3 lb.

What Saxelby has to say about it: Move over Gruyere… here comes Rupert, a regal whale of a wheel of cheese from Consider Bardwell Farm. Each 35 pound wheel of Rupertis stamped with a whale shape as well as the batch number when the curds are being pressed, no doubt an homage to its grandeur and heft. The cheese is a dense, butterscotchy, and nutty experience, with a well honed flavor profile that extends on the palate long after the last bite. The wheels are aged for a minimum of nine months to ensure the development of the cheese’s subtle, lingering flavor.
