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....
