in a word - YUM.
this is the best cheese i've ever tasted.
I bought some Ossau-Iraty, made in France from sheep's milk (pasteurized). The mouthfeel is really fine and creamy for a firm cheese, and the flavour is beautiful - not sublte, but not overpowering either. What I love most, though, is the aftertaste. It almost feels like peanut butter... Not sure exactly how to identify the flavour, but it's really nice.
I've heard that unpasteurized Iraty is even better. Can't wait to try it!
