Stilton has a rich and mellow flavor with a pungent aftertaste. The finest Stilton is creamy with a subtle, yeasty sweetness and a salty, nutty finish. In fact, the way to judge the quality of your Stilton is by how creamy it is, not by how blue it is. Stilton is excellent for crumbling over salads or as a dessert cheese, served with a Port Wine. Be sure to let your Stilton come to room temperature before enjoying!
