Caboc cheese is a traditional Scottish cheese with a unique shape and creamy texture. Caboc has a history dating back to at least the 15th century and is considered one of Scotland's oldest cheeses. It is a fresh, soft cheese made from pasteurized cow's milk and double cream and is typically rolled in oatmeal. The name "Caboc" is derived from the Gaelic word "cabag," meaning little round, which aptly describes the cheese's small, round shape.
The cheese is known for its smooth, creamy texture and mild, buttery flavour. The addition of double cream gives it a rich and indulgent quality. The oatmeal coating provides a pleasant contrast to the creamy interior.
