Really good cheese
Really good cheese
Great flavour and texture
Very good. Full of flavour and great texture.
Change the packaging
The cheese is fine, but the packaging is horrendous. The packaging sends the cheese off well before the use by date.
Would rather have no cheese than this cheese.
Absolutely zero reason for anyone to buy this. Completely tasteless and just an expensive version of the bigger packs of very mild cheddar. Even the packaging is inferior to other cheddar.
Lovely tangy tasty cheese
I was sent this as a substitute for coastal bite and found I like this more. A lovely tangy flavour. An inch wide strip is more than enough for lunch with a sharp green apple and a handful of crisp green grapes. I'm not sure what the others are eating, but this is delicious.
What’s With The Negative Reviews ??
Well, this certainly has mixed reviews… but I have to say that we agree entirely with the latter positive review rather than the scathing negative ones. In fairness, it might be a different supplier nowadays, but we found it very tasty, slightly tangy and with a lovely creamy aftertaste - goes down a treat with water biscuits. Not sure we’d pay full price regularly, but at the current clubcard price of 3 for a fiver, you can’t go wrong. We also like the Davidstow 36 Month Reserve Cheddar, which is also in the 3 for a fiver, and that gets a full 5 stars from other reviewers - but on balance, we prefer the flavour of this Finest vintage cheddar.
Absolutely delicious. Tangy with a bit of crunch.
I was very dubious about ordering this after reading the other reviews. I don't know if the supplier has changed, but we thought this absolutely delicious. Tangy with a bit of crunch from the salt crystals. Everything a vitage cheddar should be.
Not even close to vintage and a long, long way from finest. Honestly, Tesco's own Mature is better. This is a young, almost tasteless cheese with a poor quality texture. Way. way over priced. Extremely disappointed and I am sure you will be too.
Horrible -- do not buy if you like vintage cheese.
Horrible cheddar and certainly not what you expect when buying 'vintage' cheese. The flavour and texture were horrible.
This is NOT vintage cheddar!
I expect vintage cheddar to have a strong characteristic flavour and a 'crunch' brought about by the ageing process. I don't know what this cheese was doing for 18 months but maturing wasn't one of them. It has the strength of a standard cheddar (just), but less flavour. I' m wondering if Tesco buyers actually sample any of the products they buy. Obviously not. A truly poor product that doesn't deserve the one star. Don't buy....
