The recent Cheese Room arrival of La Tour du Bonheur is a layered goat/cow/goat, making it silky on the palate with edgy creme fraiche notes; Tomme Fleurette, the high-mountain-swiss nod to Brie, is grassy and melting with farmhouse aromas; our 4+ Year Gouda is all crunch, butterscotch & caramel; Munster brings meaty notes against a sightly chewy texture; Bleu de Bonneval is like fresh cream shot through with that earthy roqueforti moulds.
