Mmmm ... SMEARY

Since you ask, it’s truffled Taleggio, bought from the Solo Cheese stand at the farmer’s market in Manningtree. Taleggio is, apparently, a ‘smear ripened’ cheese, traditionally matured in caves and washed with seawater once a week to prevent mould as it forms its crust.  All the sources comment on the fact that it has a strong smell and yet a mild tangy, creamy taste.  Sometimes sources get it about right.
