Stichelton Blue Stilton Cheese can exhibit a multitude of long lasting flavours ranging from green apples to beef stock.
It has a juicy acidity and toasty, biscuity notes towards the rind. The texture tends to be soft and creamy.
It is really interesting to taste the different parts of the Stichelton separately: the plain white part, the creamy part just next to the blue, the blue itself, the creamy part just under the rind (and if you can find them, the little amber beads of ‘nectar’ that can reside there).
