Caromont Farm is close to the tiny village of Esmont – one road, no stoplight, and the kind of small town post office of a bygone era. This cheese is named for our home town. Esmontonian is a raw, goat's milk cheese, aged on farm for a minimum of 60 days. It is a rustic tomme, made in an Italian basket mould and left to flourish in our cave with a natural rind. The Esmontonian begins with notes of minerality, a touch of citrus, and finishes with a delicate earthy aroma and a toasted maple note. With age expect a more picante note and a dry, grana like texture.
