This Scottish blue cheese is produced by cheesemaker Humprey Errington. It has a shape of cylinder wrapped in foil. The taste is slightly sweet and green-blue veins spreading through the cheese are the result of mould having been sprinkled into the milk vat before the cheese is curdled. After that the cheese is molded by hand and allowed to mature for three months. It is one of the cheeses of Roquefort-style.
