Cheese 8

humboldt fog funk????

I just tasted the oft revered humboldt fog today, along with the truffle counterpart. we just moved to NJ from London, and i have been reading rapturous reports of this cheese from afar for ages. I found it today at WF. I was completely underwhelmed, and more than overtaken by a sharp tangy-ness that completely erased any pleasure from taste. I didn't taste any fullness, richness or depth of flavor that i expect from years of eating chevre in europe. The truffled one tasted the same; only with truffles.... Have i tasted a bad batch of the nectar???? Please tell me that all of these months of anticipation haven't been for naught.... Maybe a better source? thanks.
