Blue Stilton Reviews ...

Colston Bassett Stilton

This is a pale creamy off-white cheese with dense blue-green marbling which is much reduced towards the edge. It crumbles into non-curd lumps and is sticky between the fingers. The smell is buttery but with a note a bit like processed smoked cheese. It tastes buttery and creamy with decent balance but was lacking in bite, even in the very blue bits. Very hollow in the mid-palate and faded quickly. A mild Blue Stilton.

Cropwell Bishop Stilton

Pale and buttery appearance with much more blue than the first cheese. The blue is in a fine and extensive web throughout the cheese. This was less sticky and crumbled better than the first cheese. It was hard to detect anything on the nose from this cheese. It is better in the mouth, with a nice coarse-grained texture and good complexity. It is salty but also has a good blue hit. The flavours linger and have good depth and length. Hint of ammonia on the finish, but not distracting

Long Clawson Stilton

Plenty of finely-marbled blue right out to the edge. The blue is the least intense colour, being actually more a pale green. Not particularly crumbly. The nose is buttery but also has an interesting complexity. There’s a nice richness to it and a nutty note too. This has a dense and buttery texture and is the most chewy of the cheeses. There is lovely depth of blue flavour and good balance with the salt, which is quite restrained. Good length, with just a hint of ammonia on the finish.


This looks really appealing. The cheese is a shade darker than the first two and on the plate it is naturally crumbling into curd-shaped bits. The blue is extensive and coarse-veined. This smells lactic and cheesy. There’s also a bready or malty richness on the nose. By far the most complex and appealing. In the mouth this is distinctly lighter and less dense than any of the others with a hedonistic melting quality. Smooth and salty with lovely layers of complex flavours. Good balance between the rich cheese and the bite of the blue. Stunningly good cheese.
