Description

This Mature 1.8kg truckle, is a whole miniature cheese. Handcrafted using milk from our grass-fed cows, clothbound and naturally matured, typically for 6 months. Due to the smaller more compact nature of our Truckles, they take on their own unique flavour, different from the larger cut cheeses. Creamy and buttery with hints of Brothy to grassy to caramel notes.  

They make the perfect gift or a show-stopping addition to a festive feast. The unveiling of the cheese, taking off the cloth can be a real treat for guests to watch. 

Packaged in its own Trukle box with its own tasting card and how to cut a truckle leaflet to ensure you know how to cut, serve and store.

Cheddar in a different league

It’s almost odd to call this cheddar in the sense that cheddar has connotations of being quite ordinary, certainly cheap and cheerful. But Quicke’s cheddar is extraordinary. Complex, intense flavour that lingers. All the stuff about creamy and sweet and tangy and salty etc…all true.

In terms of care, I didn’t follow the guidance on opening, which is to remove the cloth and wrap in grease proof paper. I cut straight through in half, through the cloth. Then I cut a wedge off to eat, taking the cloth off and wrapping in clingfilm. To store the rest I put clingfilm on all the cut faces (but not on the cloth), making sure there were no air gaps on these faces, and kept in the fridge. In this way it lasted us something like two months, at the rate we ate it, but I’m sure it could last even longer.

Perfection

I ordered this cheese in lockdown. I especially love the rind - just like cheese had forty years ago. The box lined with straw is a work of art and I can’t throw it away now that I’ve eaten the cheese.

I now blame Quickes for my lockdown weight gain 🤣

Simply love Quickes Cheddar

Find the flavour and texture of this delicious cloth bound cheddar absolutely heavenly! Reminds me of the diary when I was a child! Scrumptious with pickle or a glass of good cider or red wine! What more could I wish for! Thank you so much Quickes! …may my days be filled with endless truckles of Quickes cheddar …..

Gorgeous smell and well packed

Nothing to dislike. Haven't carved into it yet, waiting till we are out of isolation (eldest has COVID). Smells heavenly!
