Lyburn Old Winchester

£2.53£5.03

Also known as Old Smales, Old Winchester is an older version of Winchester, on a previous page. This is now a much dryer harder and crystalline cheese, becoming more reminiscent of an old gouda with a distinctive nuttiness in flavour, however it is a product of evolution and need. Because Old Winchester is made with a vegetarian rennet, on a number of occasions the cheese is being sold, and used as a vegetarian replacement for a hard Italian cheese, and yet can still be used as a table cheese, it has that bit more versatility. Some might argue that this English farmhouse cheese, is better than a hard Italian cheese, but I could not possibly comment. We try to sell them at about 18 months (16 months just at the minute) and they will average approx. 4.5kg each. The age will come and go as it is impossible to get the stock level right all the time, we are at the moment, very tight on stock, should be fine early 2020, as there is plenty in the pipeline.
