Old Kentucky Tomme

Old Kentucky Tomme is a semi-soft, raw goat's milk cheese from Indiana that lies somewhere between an American Jack and a Tomme du Savoie. This aged cheese is matured for 5-6 months before being sold in the market. It has a white-gray, bloomy rind that becomes crusty and darker with age. The paste is creamy, buttery with brie-like translucent texture.

Flavours are buttery, rich and smooth with mushroomy and goaty overtones. It is a lovely melting cheese and pairs well with savoury elements, grilled apples and ginger preserves and on cheese trays. Accompany a young Old Kentucky Tomme with soft red wines whilst the older ones with chardonnay or sauternes.
