Officer Nate Investigates Jasper Hill's Cheese Sample
It's been a while since the last bits of my Jasper Hill sample were consumed. While I had good intentions to write about the final tasting, work and turkey hunting got in the way.
One of my coworkers, Nate, is a police officer with a passion for cheese. When I first learned that I was selected to test Jasper Hill's new cheese I promised Nate that I would bring some cheese to work for him to try. Police officers are never guaranteed a lunch break so finding time to get together at lunch to sample some cheese is special in itself. Having the opportunity to share a cheese in progress made our lunch break even better. Some of our previous lunch time cheese sampling have included Carr Valley's Mammoth Cheddar, Beer Kase and Limburger. When sampling Beer Kase and Limburger it helps to work third shift when there are less people around to offend.
With the Jasper Hill samples laid out before him Nate got to work examining the evidence. Nate noted that sample #111228 reminded him of milk and #111215 had a little sharper flavor. Nate's favorite was #120125. This last sample was the most pungent of the three. Nate noted that this sample's aroma had a hint of vinegar. In my own test I noted that #120125 had the stronger aroma and flavor. This sample also had a more creamy texture.
All too soon our break and our cheese was finished.
