Colston Bassett Stilton has a velvet, close texture with a pale ivory paste, grading to amber at the edges and marbled with greenish blue veins. The rind is dry and crusty, grey-brown in colour, slightly wrinkled and with white powdery patches. The flavour ranges from mild with a sharp edge when young, to rich and tangy when mature.
Store cheese in a refrigerator drawer. Avoid storing in the door, where it is vulnerable to temperature swings. Wrap hard cheeses in waxed paper, then store them in a zip-top plastic bag to preserve quality. Remember to let cheese get to room temperature before using.
