Choice cheddar ............
My pack stated 5 and it tastes like a five. Best cheddar combination of flavour and texture I have eaten for a while. Will buy again.

I don't usually write reviews especially about grocery items but after reading other reviews on this product I couldn't resist. Some have said it wasn't good enough but I found this cheese the best I have tasted for a very long time. It does have a bite and is delicious I couldn't stop grabbing more. My taste buds recognized exactly what it says.
Great unique taste!
Great unique taste!
ok cheese but says 3 on packet despite there being a 5 in the picture
Mmm loverly. Once tried not forgotten.
Excellent taste, has good bite but is not over powering, good texture not crumbly when being cut. Just right for cheese and biscuits and nice in a cheese sauce.
An exceptionally tasty cheese
This is a delicious cheese, bite is a good description, it has loads of flavour. We will be buying this again having added it to our Christmas cheeseboard.
So worth the money
As someone who was born and bred in Dorset I seem to remember that 50 odd years ago cheese was like this. Warm on the palette, long lasting taste. Maybe I'm imagining this, but really excellent cheese. Well worth the money. Great with Port
Not Strength 5 as claimed on the label
The picture says this is Strength 5 cheddar but, as another reviewer said, what you receive clearly states Strength 3 on the packet. What with social distancing and bag free deliveries these days, by the time I got to read the packet, the driver was long gone so no way of returning it. The taste is indeed not very strong, certainly not what I expect for something described as Vintage cheddar. It's an OK cheese but tastes odd to us, it is very sweet and has a weak, almost non existing flavour. I will not buy it again. I also very much resent being mislead by the label!
A lovely cheese
A lovely cheese - strong (although not quite as strong as I expected for a vintage), smooth, and creamy.
Has this changed recently?
Recently, costal bite has been rated strength 3, not the 5 I remember, and as illustrated. Has the product been changed, or is it being incorrectly rated?
