Browse our great selection of Gourmet Stinky Cheeses. Some people love them, some people hate them. It’s all about getting the cheese past your nose to experience the flavor and texture of the cheese. Many stinky cheeses have a washed-rind and if you like to pair these smelly creatures you can do that with a floral, sweet wine like a Riesling or Gewurtztraminer, a full-bodied red wine or try it with a beer, a Lambic. Consider it a dare. Try them and let us know what you think by giving us your opinion in a product review.
We will be adding exciting new Gourmet Stinky Cheeses frequently, so come back soon!
Our Featured Gourmet Stinky Cheese
Oma is not only a grandmother, it is also a washed-rind raw cow's milk cheese, made by Sebastian and Dan Von Trapp on their farm in the Mad River Valley in Vermont. The cheese is aged in the Jasper Hill Cellars and sees the light as a small cheese, of approximately 1.5 pounds. Its texture is soft and supple, but it does not run easily. It has the unmistakable aroma of washed rind cheeses, but not extremely strong, but certainly earthy, and barn-like. The flavor is buttery and complex, but again not overly strong.
This artisanal gourmet cheese is named after Sebastian and Dan's Oma, Erica Von Trapp, who started the family farm 50 years ago, and is made with organic cow’s milk, from a herd of grass-fed, mixed-breed cows, mainly Jersey cows. read more...
