Lovely and this is why.

Everyone is right. It is a bit manureish, it is really strong and it is crumbly. I love it for those qualities, if you like me, can appreciate those qualities, you will love it too.

Sharp but creamy

This is one of the nicest cheeses I have tasted. Gutsy but with a creamy aftertaste once the initial strong flavour has relaxed. Bit too pricey for an every week purchase though!

We love cheddar cheese in this house but this was the worst we had ever tasted. It had a really odd and unpleasant flavour - horse manure is probably a good description as per other reviews. No-one liked it and the unpleasant flavour was still detectable when I tried to use it up in a cheese sauce. I would never buy again.

Not to our taste!

Not a taste we like. It does have a strong flavour which I can't quite put my finger on.....horse manure is not far off the mark actually! Much Prefer Wyke and Cathedral.

Taste is fine but

The whole block falls apart if you try slice it or grate it. I am not sure if they freeze it when in storage but it just crumbles making it quite annoying
