Bayley Hazen Blue is a natural rinded blue veined cheese made from raw milk. Bayley has a fudge-like texture, toasted-nut sweetness, and anise spice character. The paste is dense and creamy, with well-distributed blue veins.
Cheesemonger's Note: The natural rind is beige with a thin layer of white and grey molds.
Bayley Hazen Blue is a Jasper Hill Farm original, and is made from whole raw milk. It is named for an old military road commissioned by George Washington during the Revolutionary War. Though no major battle ever took place, the road brought Greensboro its first settlers and continues to be used today.
This Vermont blue cheese has developed a loyal following because of its fudge-like texture, toasted-nut sweetness, and anise spice character. The paste is dense and creamy, with well-distributed blue veins. The usual peppery character of blue cheese is subdued, giving way to the grassy, nutty flavors in the milk.
The texture and flavor makes Bayley Hazen an ideal choice for any lover of blue cheese, but with a balance of flavors that renders it accessible to those new to the style.
Try pairing with a fruity red dessert wine, toasty Imperial Stout, or a hunk of dark chocolate. Bayley Hazen is also ideal for crumbling over a juicy burger or adding to a salad with spinach, walnuts, and dried tart cherries.
