Blue Stilton is a pretty big cheese, not only in name but also in size; easily 18 lbs. Long Clawson has made a small cheese that is manageable for a private setting. This wheel of approximately 5 lbs. is made exactly the same way as its huge sibling.
The small wheel seems a logic choice when you have a party, and pairings are numerous, various wines; the classic Port, sweet white wine, Sauternes, Sherry or Porter Beer. Add a variety of bread and cracker, add nuts and fruits and you're ready to go.
Some people like to pour port onto or into the wheel, by slicing the top off the wheel, making a whole in the center and pour the Port straight into that hole and let is slowing work its way to the bottom of the cheese. The color of the cheese will change, and the cheese may be a little soggy-wet, but it may be a fun party center piece.
Long Clawson's Blue Stilton is one of those cheeses you will need to try once as it is a corner stone of traditional gourmet blue cheese.
Please note that wheels may vary in weight, you will be charged for the actual weight of the wheel that you will receive.
