Winnimere & Vacherin Mont d'Or
"Winnimere from Jasper Hill is the top of the domestic stinky cheese game. It's the same style as Vacherin Mont d'Or with a spruce bark rind, which gives the cheese a nice smoky/woodsy flavor. You also get the best of the stinky cheese beefiness with this one." -- PC
Torta del Casar
"For true pungent power, there's nothing I like more than the crazy torta-style cheeses from Extremadura, Spain! Crafted from raw sheep that is coagulated with a thistle extract, they have the consistency of pudding, unctuously tempting flavors that run the gamut from meat to olives to herbs, and enough stank to fill an entire bar!" -- NB
