#17 - unnamed Buche (made by Vendee Chevre)
This un-named goats cheese log (it was simply labelled generically as a "buche") had an ash coating and a geotrichum rind. It looks to have been matured more than the buche semi-affinage mentioned earlier and was also saltier. The outer 1/3 of the cheese showed glossy breakdown. A nice creamy, smooth texture, with more of a goaty/caproic acid flavour (but still in balance and pleasant). Finishes with a spicy, black pepper after taste.
