Milleens Dotes, 200g
Milleens is a washed rind cheese made with pasturised cow’s milk. It is probably the strongest of the four classic Irish washed rinds, the others being: Durrus, Gubbeen. In ideal condition Milleens should have an ever so slightly wet rind and a chalk paste which bulges towards the rind but remains chalky in the middle. The pleasure involved in eating good Milleens centers around the contrast between the whiffy, pungent rind and the fresh, lactic taste of the paste within. Best with bread and wine, try it with a nice rustic bread and a gutsy Rasteau or similarly rustic southern Rhone red.
