Origin: Oregon, USA
A long, gentle cold-smoking over shells from Oregon hazelnuts infuses Rogue Creamery’s Smokey Blue cheese with an added layer of rich flavour and terroir. Sweet cream flavours and caramel notes balance earthy flavours of smoke and hints of roasted nuts. The result is a cakey yet smooth blue cheese reminiscent of candied bacon.
Smokey Blue is the first of its kind in the world. Smokey Blue was inspired by a chef, and the flavour is signature to Oregon as the smoke is derived from Oregon hazelnut shells. Sweet, nutty, savoury flavours envelope the sweet, rich milk creating a creme brulee with a hint of the toasted, sweet richness of a campfire.
