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....
