Long Description

From top to bottom:

Galax, 8oz - Aged two months or more in their cellars, Galax is a mellow cheese whose smooth, buttery texture brings out the natural sweetness of the milk. Tangy lemon and yogurt flavors give way to a touch of walnut nuttiness on the finish. The texture is pleasantly soft and springy, melting on the tongue.

Appalachian, 8oz - Meadow Creek Dairy's signature cheese, the Appalachian is a true expression of the cheesemaker's terroir. The make is simple and focused on affinage, allowing the Appalachian to form a white coat of penicillium molds that compliments its unique flavor. Appalachian is a lush, vibrant cheese evocative of cream and butter with a mushroom earthiness that recalls the intensity of the cellars. Its lemon notes shade to toasted as the cheese ages. The texture is velvety, melting on the tongue.

Mini Grayson, 12oz - A small format version of their bestselling Irish and Wales-inspired Grayson cheese, the Minis are washed for two months in their cellars with Hardywood’s Singel ale. These petit beauties have Grayson’s classic washed rind earthiness, complimented by the smooth, yeasty beer flavor, with subtle notes of cream and a rich fruity finish. The texture is spreadably silky and melting right up to the reddish-yellow rind. Each Mini is between two-thirds and three-quarters of a pound.

The Best Cheese I've Ever Had

Though I'm not a fan of stinky cheese, I purchased this package for a small, socially-distanced cheese night with some friends. The Appalachian and Mountaineer were "crowd" favorites. They're absolutely delectable. Even the Mini-Grayson found its small fan club. I will definitely be buying this again!
