Playfully inspired by Smokey Bear, this American original is cold-smoked for many hours over Oregon hazelnut shells. This process infuses the cheese with unique aromas of barrel-aged vanilla, bread pudding, and candied bacon. You’ll taste spicy-sweet flavors of honey, apple, and nectarine, plus a mild “blue” finish.

You May Want To Add:

Appearance: Pale, buttery paste with blue veining

Texture: Creamy, buttery, and crumbly, with mild tannins

Taste: Vanilla, bread pudding, roasted nuts, and nectarine, with mild “blue” flavor

Suggested Pairings:

  • Elevates even the simplest of foods, such as burgers and deviled eggs. A unique addition to any cheese board, where it is best served with nut brittle or preserved fruits.
  • Stands up well to bigger red wines, including Cabernet Franc and Zinfandel, as well as white wines exhibiting a hint of sweetness.  A favorite pairing with American Whiskey.

    I also didn’t like blue cheese but this was amazing. I melted it on top of a steak but couldn’t stop eating pieces of it the entire time I was cooking!

    I just tried the Smokey Blue Cheese and it is absolutely delicious! (I do not like blue cheese) I received a gift of this Smokey Blue, otherwise I would never have tried it. A review under the Touvelle Cheese mentioned her recipe which included Smokey Blue for a grilled cheese and that recipe turned out wonderful. This Smokey Blue is out of this world good!!
