Orange wood dust. nice back note natural mellow saltiness to it too and left with slight sweetness, wow. Little moisture in the bag too so no drying out,  Thanks to Wade for the tip on leaving  after smoke before vaccing. Waitrose essential mature cheddar, order through OCADO online delivery.

I have done about 3 kgs or so as sister in law wanted some but she has gone back to Lancashire and forgotten to take any, now i have loads mellowing. will bring some to tailgates. And some out to my family in France when i go my annual fishing holiday there in late May.

 

Imagine in the below the cheese goes to the back of the fridge so it is double what you can see
