One of the first smoked blue cheeses ever created, this Oregon-original gets its flavor from 16 hours of cold-smoking over the shells of Oregon hazelnuts followed by 6 months of aging. Sweet cream flavors and caramel notes balance earthy flavors of smoke and hints of roasted nuts. The sweet, savory, and nutty result will remind you of the toasted, sweet richness of a campfire.
About the producer
Rogue Creamery was started by Tom Vella in southern Oregon in the 1930s. He knew he must be doing something right when business continued to thrive throughout the Great Depression and World War II. Rogue Creamery was later awarded for its contributions to war efforts, having produced one million pounds of cheddar cheese per year for four consecutive years to be shipped to troops around the world. Today Rogue Creamery is certified organic and continues to create delicious new cheese. They’ve been awarded the titles of World’s Best Blue Cheese in 2003 and Best New Product Award in 2005. As stated in their mission, Rogue Creamery is dedicated to sustainability, service, and the tradition of creating handmade cheese.
