This cheese is amazing! I am totally addicted to the creamy mildly garlic flavor. Great cracker and cheese with while. I haven’t tried using it in any recipes yet. Great for top of a salad. Too bad it is seasonal.

St Illtyd is a mature creamy cheddar with white wine, garlic and parsley from Abergavenny in Wales.
There’s a whole lot of serious flavour going on here. St Illtyd is strong but soft and mellow with the distinct warmth of garlic and a zing of wine and herbs, all wrapped on black wax. Eat one mouthful and you just have to try another. And another. And then maybe one more.
What with? St Illtyd is very happy with a nice white like Banda Dorada Blanco, but no one would get upset if you ate it with a glass of Mâcon Village Rouge. Sublime in a baked potato, it’s also very good indeed in a creamy sauce with leeks or stuffed in a chicken breast.

i love this cheese … pure and simple. there aren’t enough stars in the rating scale above, so i give it a max of five
i have this love and hate relationship with TJs in that i can only find it during the thanksgiving and christmas holidays.
i love that because it makes me appreciate it more. it love the anticipation that i really enjoy just before thanksgiving knowing that it will soon be in the cheese/meat dept …
and yet on a spring day in the park it would be awesome with a nice port … and i can’t have …. and i hate that

My new favorite cheese. Not just big-flavored, delicious big flavored. Love it, love it. Previously it was Havarti, Port Salut, MiniBasque, and Le Rustique. All are fabulous, but St Illytd wins by a lot–although it has the least memorable, most difficult name to spell of any product, period.

Excellent, cheddar style cheese: soft yet tangy and very slightly sweet with a memorable Welsh name for us non-Weslsh-speakers. For me, it is an excellent competitor to Cotswold Double Gloucester cheese.

Excellent in every respect. I usually ear a better blue cheese but decided to give the Saint a chance. And hey, I think I’ll stay with it Can hardly wait to pick up some more at the store tomorrow.
Not that bad
