Livarot is a traditional French soft, washed-rind cheese made in Normandy. Quite a strong cheese with pungent & spicy flavors.
Also known as "The Colonel" because the cheese is bound with strips of rush or paper, reminiscent of the stripes of a military officer of that rank. This AOP cheese is one of Normandy's oldest cheeses dating back to at least the 13th century. It has a strong flavor, heavy mouthfeel, and spicy finish. Normally matured for six to eight weeks, it can be aged for longer to achieve stronger flavors. Its rind must be smooth and shiny without holes. Depending on its age, its color varies between auburn and dark brown.
