St Tola Log is a goat's cheese made by Siobhán Ní Gháirbhit and her team at Inagh Farmhouse cheese n Co Clare, on the West Atlantic coast of Ireland. The cheese is named after the local patron saint, St Tola.
St Tola is renowned for its soft light smooth fine grained creamy texture but with a number of complex sub flavours. It is available in both young and mature versions where the flavour and texture both change as the cheese ages. Young St Tola is quite fragile structured with a fresher cleaner and creamy flavour. As it matures, the cheese acquires a firmer texture and pronounced, sweet and floral with honey undertones with a distinctive loose, wrinkled golden geotrichum rind. The cheese can be used in various recipes but it also makes a really good cheeseboard.
A 120g slice of Mature St Tola is available as 'St Tola Original'.
