Vintage Cheddar at 1 Year Old Taste Test

Vintage Cheddar at 1 Year Old Taste Test

Made in early July 2016, this Vintage Cheddar is now a year old. It was high time I gave the piece I was saving in the cheese cave a good taste and melting test. The verdict is in; it is amazing, one of the best cheeses I have tasted this year. Full flavour, sharp and crumbly, this vintage cheddar cheese is to die for!

    Wanted to get into cheese making because I find the store bought to be tasteless and rubbery. Thank you for your cheeses!

    My grandfather was a doctor in Somerset, and used to get a truckle of Cheddar every Christmas from a local cheese maker. The cloth on the outside would be pretty grubby and mouldy. Firm rind, inside milk white, faintly moist, crumbly but easily holding together in a thin slice. The flavour was to die for. Sort of milk X 10, with a complex, farmyard-y smell. I mean it. The smell of a farmyard. And it was alive. It had a faint fizz. Like champagne. I'm gutted the name 'Cheddar' has been allowed to be slapped onto the crap that's mostly sold around the world.

    I am sure that this process produces wonderful Cheddar Cheese, unfortunately there is not available "all the time in the world" to produce this food, especially as it is available on demand at the Tesco

    I'm not a big fan of cheese, I only like it when its melted and even then I'm particular. I've been binge watching this man for weeks, I'll probably end up making a cheese of my own through his tutorials. This is why I love YouTube ^^

  • Raunchy101 on February 12, 2020

    how lovely

  • Daniel Scully on February 12, 2020

    It's astonishing how something so simple can bring people so much joy, whether they're doing it themselves or just watching. Keep it up! 🙂

  • Naaas on February 12, 2020

    This is so wholesome in a world filled with so much shit… Good job mate, keep on cheesing. Cheers !

  • Nathan Stice on February 12, 2020

    Thanks for your persistence in keeping us updated on that batch! You had to improvise in another room but you went for it anyways! ? I stumbled on your channel a week ago and I watch your videos when I need to relax (I started graduate University two weeks ago). I am fascinated by the cheese making process and honestly just watching it is so calming and interesting. Like wine making its so rewarding watching an age old practice being done like it always was (not in a factory)! Thanks for your dedication to your craft you have a subscriber!

  • Michael P on February 12, 2020

    Absolutely beautiful, I’m making mine tomorrow. I’d like to wax it though. Gavin, thank you for these wonderful videos/tutorials. I started cheesemaking 3 years ago, went through a bit of illness and got away from it, now watching your vids has greatly inspired me to start again. Can’t wait.

  • heather johnson on February 12, 2020

    That looks sooooooo good

  • Dire Badger on February 12, 2020

    What kind of meltiness does it have? I mean, does it make good grilled cheese sandwiches?

  • mabel delrey on February 12, 2020

    I envy you.. I love cheese but can't eat much cause my stomach will hurt. More power to your cheese making. I surely enjoy your vids.

  • Brad Leonard on February 12, 2020

    After eating all this cheese my bowels will have aged inside of me for a year as well. I’ll bet the smell will be off putting, tho.
