Huntsman is a cheese that is made by taking two famous English cheeses, Stilton and Double Gloucester, and combining them in layers. It is a fairly labor intensive cheese as the cheese is hand layered. The contrasting flavors and textures create a harmonious blend. The cheese is dense yet also creamy. It is salty and sharp but also nutty. It is also known as Stilchester although the name "Huntsman" is trademarked.
