Cheese Tasting Notes: A review of Milkhouse Dairy’s Tomme

Milkhouse Tomme

At 3 years young, the Milkhouse Tomme is rich and firm with a natural rind that picks up nuances of the surrounding meadow. The flavour is earthy with layers of an eggy tang, butter and a hint of grassiness weaving through some slight nutty tannins. It finishes long with a sweet but dry creamy texture on the palette. It will continue to mature beautifully into one of Ontario’s most complex and satisfying cheeses. Enjoy it now as an addition to cheese boards where red wines or full bodies whites will be served.
