This is a Colston Basset Dairy pasteurized cow’s milk blue cheese. The Colston Basset Dairy, located in Nottinghamshire, England, was built specifically to make Stilton cheese. This cheese has been injected with penicillium roquefortii and ages for three to four months before it is ready to eat. The affineur (cheese ager) is Neal’s Yard.  This particular Stilton has a nice balance between the richness of the cream and the tanginess of the blue.  It sells for about $30 per pound.  Try it with a luscious dessert wine (such as a late harvest Semillon) or with honey comb.
