A look at cave-aged Rock Star cheese from Snowdonia

The Llechwedd Slate Caverns in Snowdonia is where Rock Star, a cave-aged cheddar cheese, is matured giving it a unique taste. The colourfully-named offering, from the mountains of northwest Wales, has an aroma described as rich and savoury, while its texture is smooth save for the odd crunchy crystal. The cheese’s complex flavours are as “deep as the caverns it is aged in,” as poetically put by its maker – Snowdonia Cheese Company. The product comes in a tasteful blue wax packaging.
