This is the second cheese I purchased in Prague. Vltavín is a Czech Blue Cheese made by Sedlcanský. It’s a cow’s milk cheese made in a Camembert style, but as a blue cheese. The cheese has been described as “[a]n amazing combination of two classic flavors Camembert and blue-veined rocquefortového type.”
The exterior is mold ripened, with white patches over a gray rind. The interior is pale yellow with the distinctive blue cheese veins. The paste is semi-firm. The taste was surprisingly good for a commercial cheese sold in a grocery store. It has a mellow flavor with a well balanced tang from the mold. It wasn’t salty or too spicy either. Overall, quite an interesting and enjoyable cheese.
