Gubbeen' might mean 'a small mouthful', but after one taste of this Irish farmhouse cheese, and you'll want more than just that. The Gubbeen farm has been worked by the Ferguson family for five generations, and they're the only producer of this original cheese. When young, this mild, creamy washed rind shares an aroma of meadow flowers and light toasted hazelnuts, but when allowed to develop, it evolves into a complex bouquet of walnuts and mushrooms. Tinted with pink and brown on the rind, the pale yellow, supple paste makes it an excellent standalone on a rustic cracker. The Gubbeen is a real Irishman, only made in the County of Cork, and does best with a malty stout by its side.
