Shepsog is a mixed milk cheese made by the Grafton Cooperative Cheese Company in Vermont. High-quality sheep's and cow's milk is used to make a stunning wheel of cheese, which is then aged in Grafton’s caves for a minimum of five months. This cheese is available only in fall and winter. Complex and earthy, Shepsog develops a butter-yellow semi-firm paste during its ripening period encased by a velvety rind of white and grey moulds. Its flavour is rich and round, with a nutty and sweet finish. The cheese pairs well with a Syrah. This celebrated cheese has won many international awards including Super gold at the 2014 World Cheese Awards. It has been judged as one of the world's 62 best cheeses.

Loved this hard but creamy cheese with just enough oomph.

By itself it tastes a little bit bitter/sour but is quite good with crackers. Nice flavor, no end “punch”. More flavorful than I expected originally. Sort of reminds me of cheddar. Would definitely buy again.
