Taleggio: Is it stinky?

twodales | May 24, 2007 08:54 AM

I was able to find some Taleggio here in Chicago for my focaccia. Upon opening, it smelled like old socks. Well-aged. I don't mind but it's off-putting for some family members. I was hoping for something more kid friendly. Do I return the rest to the cheese guy for an exchange of a milder piece or is this the nature of the beast?
