Andy Hatch of Wisconsin's own Uplands Cheese Co. is one of the best regarded cheesemakers in the artisan cheese world. His Pleasant Ridge Reserve is the most awarded cheese in the US. In a true European tradition, he makes a winter cheese from raw milk from their pastured herd of cows: RUSH CREEK RESERVE. 

The small 12 oz. wheels are bound in spruce bark and washed for sixty days to produce an astonishing unctuous, resiny, bacony delight. The aroma is grassy and full of depth. The flavor is pleasantly mild but never simple, with hints of smokiness. The texture is pure luxury, pudding-like: silky smooth and built for scooping and smothering on fresh baguette. You do not want to miss this stellar cheese.
