Roque Creamery has taken their award winning Oregon Blue and added a twist creating Smokey Blue cheese. The Oregon Blue wheels are cold smoked for 16 hours over local hazelnut shells. The result is a surprisingly civilized nuance, including aromas of the hazelnuts as well as sweet caramel, fresh milk, which work to balance the otherwise sharp bite of blue veining. This cheese is unique and rare to find in Canada.
