The Danish Castello Blue or Blue Castello is a triple-cream, blue-veined gourmet cheese with a washed-rind. The cheese's surface has a unique combination of blue-green and reddish molds. These molds give the cheese its distinct aroma and flavor. Castello Blue has a Brie-like texture, with the blue in fairly thick, horizontal lines.
The taste of Castello Blue is delectably rich and buttery, with mild spicy accents of blue veins and the aroma is of mushrooms. The mild flavor develops steadily as long as it keeps, but it never becomes too strong.
Each wedge is approx. 9 ounces and the half wheel is approx. 1.8 pounds (28 ounces).
