1/21 wheel tonight. Perfect

Our wheel just before the new year was excellent, if a little tame. The bacon came through with some depth but it did not get funky. Great stuff for sure and at the price no reason to complain, but it has been better for sure.

In my experience, the most "bacony" wheels are the earliest released with the later releases becoming less smoked meats and more of a herbaceous mustard profile.

That is very interesting. I also buy their Harbison and I have noted the herbaceous mustard profile you identify. It is outstanding and why I got hooked on this style of cheese. Maybe a good reason some folks choose to age their wheels a few months more.

I regret to inform you that Harbison is made by Jasper Hill Farm, not Uplands Cheese Company.

As an aside, the last five Rush Creek Reserves that I have purchased (from Whole Foods) have been badly ammoniated and inedible. I quit buying it. I've had much better luck with Harbison.

Typo/brain stall on my part. I buy both and Winnimere.
