First made in 1970's, this younger cheese was first made by a cheese-maker trained in making Stilton.
The Shropshire Blue is a semi-firm blue cheese, with a flavour similar to a combination of Stilton and Cheshire. It is recognized easily by its characteristic orange colour and orange/brown rind.
Those familiar with Stilton will notice that although similar, the Shropshire Blue is a bit sharper, softer, and creamier.
This popular English cheese is quite sharp and strong, with a rich, creamy, and smooth texture. Those who enjoy a stronger blue cheese will appreciate the Shropshire Blue.
