Le Tonneau is a relatively new cheese from Switzerland that
is made in the shape of a barrel (tonneau in French means barrel). It is an unpasteurized cows milk cheese that has typical
flavor and texture characteristics as most Swiss cheeses possess. It is semi-soft and dense in texture with a full, fruity,
nutty flavor with a slightly tangy finish. It is a slightly aromatic cheese with a full and robust flavor that is aged for
approximately four months. It is a great snacking cheese but may also be used to melt and mix with other traditional Swiss
cheeses for fondue.
