The venerable Rogue Creamery in Central Point, Oregon, has become synonymous with award-winning blues, and its latest addition to the American artisanal cheese market is no exception. Caveman Blue, is a moist, dense, and wellrounded cheese, streaked with green-blue veins in a pale golden paste. Its sweet, caramel, and hazelnut flavors are balanced by a blend of spice and pepper overtones, resulting in a rugged yet easy-to-love, big, bold blue. Owners David Gremmels and Cary Bryant proudly carry on the tradition of Tom and Ig Vella’s cheesemaking expertise, gently handling the curd to allow for a greater retention of moisture and a much longer aging time. Aptly named, the cheese is aged in caves with limestone walls. It pairs well with big red wines and a strong stout beer.
