A quality ploughmans lunch chedder that i now buy
A quality ploughmans lunch chedder that i now buy instead of Canadian or Cornish quartz or black bomber.This has a strength of 5 but 7 is a better guide line.Its crumbly to cut & has a rich tang
Good tangy, nutty flavour & slight crumbly texture
Thought I'd try this as I liked the idea of the 'bite'! I do like a decent cheddar with decent flavour and that nuttiness characteristic of a good vintage, plus the tendency to crumbliness, but not as pronounced as say a Lancashire. I wasn't disappointed. Perfect as I each it - in chunky slices - part on it's own, part with some decent chutney. No crackers, bread or biscuits to ruin it! Went well with the mango chutney I have (huge jar of Geeta's premium) and also the fig and apple chutney that's been I the cupboard 2 yrs! Shame I'd used up all the tomato chutney and apricot chutney I'd made a few summers back as both would have worked well... Will definitely buy again... Am now on the hunt for the perfect mature cheddar or cheese on toast... needs to be less crumbly and able to slice thinly - I tend to favour multiple thin layers than thick chunks when toasting - but have also used a mix of cheddar and a red Leicester in the past that works pretty well...
Similar to & just as good as Canadian Vintage!
Canadian Vintage is my favourite cheese! Tesco’s finest one hasn’t been available at my local store or online order & delivery for quite some time now. Tried various of Tesco’s cheeses instead & didn’t like as much. Saw this one & thanks to reviews saying it’s similar, some saying it’s better, gave it a go & I love it! Without the two side by side to compare, it seems very similar in taste & I’ll buy this one now. At least until Canadian Vintage is available to me again. I love the strong flavour with the fruity sweetness: yummy! :P I’ll even try the two together, if/when in stock, to taste the differences in the two?
Excellent value for money
The best vintage cheddar I have tasted for years. Absolutely delicious and highly recommended. Lovely tangy rich taste.
Some of the best I've ever had. Strong, crumbly, tangy, nutty, with just a tinge of sweetness, just what a Vintage cheddar should be. Tesco will surely discontinue this great cheese now I've written this!
Have changed from Canadian vintage to this.
The taste is about equal to the strong Canadian cheddar perhaps a tad better
This is a delicious cheese. I usually have it with hotcakes and chutney
