Cypress Grove Truffle Tremor--unimpressive

michaelnrdx | Dec 12, 201008:33 PM     3

I've been wanting to try a truffled cheese for a while, so I bought a piece of Truffle Tremor from Berkeley Bowl today. It definitely didn't make me tremble. I didn't taste much truffle at all, though I could see the specks. It smelled a bit like blue cheese and tasted a bit like it too, but I would rather be eating Point Reyes blue instead.

Is Truffle Tremor really that good, or did I just get a lousy piece? Should I go to a real cheese shop and try again? Also, what are some other good truffled cheeses? I'm too poor to buy truffles, so I hope to experience an impression of it through the cheeses.
