Appearance

Comes as a round block of cheese at about 140 grams in weight. The camembert comes in a beautiful cardboard box and wrapped in a waxed pape.

The cheese itself looks petit but has a nice height to it.

The exterior of the cheese has a thin layer of bloomy rind, with numerous white folds and creases.

Once you slice into the cheese you'll find a light yellow tone interior. Due to it's texture and shape you'll be able to cut nice triangular shapes from the cheese of varying sizes to enjoy on a cheese platter and with crackers.

Aroma

The aroma is that of a mouldy, ripended cheese, you'll find you get more of the aroma to the outside of the cheese, the interior is very subtle in comparison.

Flavour

It's flavours are on the plainer side in terms of camembert style cheeses, it doesn't have that mouldy, cheesy like tones.

There is a cleaner, lighter, almost buttery flavour to it. It is particularly mild in flavour but for many new to the more nutty flavour of cashew based vegan cheeses, this may be found more preferred.

It's flavour is also on the younger side, it almost feels like it needs that bit longer to ripen to get a more deeper tone. If you prefer bolder notes, you can pair it with bolder fruity notes of a chutney or jam on a cracker.

Texture

It's texture is on the firmer side of semi-firm, as the cheese as a whole and as a slice of the cheese is particularly firm for a camembert. The interior is smooth, rather dense in it's texture, which most likely adds to the reason behind it's firmness.

Slices work very well with this cheese and you can melt it. It's not the easiest to spread until warmed up a little, which I would recommend leaving out at room temperature out of the fridge to get that softer creamier texture before you enjoy it.

Longevity

The best before date allowed for a month for the cheese to be eaten and with this type of cheese you could let it further ripen. Keep refrigerated between +2°C and +8°C.

Environmental Credentials

No plastic packaging which is great as it comes in a waxy paper which can be recyled and the wooden outer can also be recycled too or even reused, which we love!

Summary

This is a great little buy accessible straight from the supermarket that delves you straight into a more dynamic vegan cheese. It's got younger, more mild flavours than what you'd expect from a camembert, but it makes for a great cheese to try for those who are not normally a fan of the more strong pungent flavours normally found in ripened cheese.
