Rogue Creamery Smokey Blue

Playfully inspired by Smokey Bear, this American original is cold-smoked for many hours over Oregon hazelnut shells. This process infuses the cheese with unique aromas of barrel-aged vanilla, bread pudding, and candied bacon. You’ll taste spicy-sweet flavors of honey, apple, and nectarine, plus a mild “blue” finish. Smokey Blue is the first of its kind in the world.

Pairings

On the cheese board, this blue provides great contrast to accompaniments like nut brittle and roasted or preserved fruits.

The strong savory flavors of Smokey Blue can stand up to bigger red wines like Cabernet Franc or Zinfandel but are also beautiful with white wines that have sweetness and adequate depth like Sauternes. For more adventurous palettes, try this blue with an American Whiskey or Bourbon.

Try With Divina Sour Cherry Spread

The sour cherry season is fleeting—typically just a few weeks—so we Divina Specialty Foods made it their mission to capture the bright, tart/sweet flavor all year round in their handcrafted Mediterranean jam. This versatile spread comes from Greece and offers a bright, fruit flavor to your breakfast toast and serves as the perfect complement to cheese.
