Bismark! A Ripe Specialty Foods exclusive here in the DC Area.

Named for a famous 19th century Vermont ram, Bismark is a cheddar/Pyrenees-style hybrid. It is savory, sweet, and yogurty, finishing with notes of candied hazelnut. Eat this cheese on its own or with a fresh green summer salad. While the cheese is made at Grafton Village Cheese in Vermont, the milk is sourced from nearby Amish farmers in New York State. Bismark’s paste is a wonderful and bold expression of sheep’s milk, while the rind takes on the natural cave environment of Crown Finish Caves.
