I like the placement of the Core cutting board and what looks to be a Shun knife in the pictures ;). Good ad placement.

They're pretty clever. ;) What cheese is calling your name now that we've got your attention?

They're not just in my neck of the woods, we undoubtedly have the same view of the Wasatch range out our back window. Mayhap this unseasonably warm Utah day calls for a trip to the cheese shop!

I had the opportunity to try the barely buzzed and sea hive from wine woot many moons ago.

I was surprised how well the lavender and coffee grounds worked together. It's incredible how well the flavors penetrate into the cheese so it's not just on the outside.

If you've ever found yourself saying "I've had salty, now I need sweet!" then you will also enjoy the sea hive. It's salty AND sweet!

two thumbs up from this wooter.

I've been waiting for the TeaHive to come up again! Really enjoyed it and the Promontory last time.

I live in the grand state that produces this cheese, and I've tried most of these.

If you hate coffee, and you get the barely buzzed, you'll be disappointed; otherwise this cheese is AMAZING!!!

I know that vendors do their own shipping and it's that much harder for wine.woot to predict these things than the rest of the Woot empire...

but is there any chance we can expect these in time for Thanksgiving, or is that time frame unrealistic?

Thanks!

I really want to give these out for Christmas because the flavors are unusual. Can someone tell me how long these are good for? Or are they going to expire before I manage to give them out for Christmas??

Come to think of it, since each pair of cheeses is its own page -- if we order multiple pairs of cheeses, will they be packaged together or separately?

I hope separately, because I just bought one for me and one for a coworker. Any chance you can confirm Woot staff?

I'm pretty sure it's separately because logic tells me it'd get confusing otherwise, but we're asking to be extra triple sure.

I may have to be in. Love me some cheese.

I want the Tea and the Honey ones. Why aren't those together?!

Likely in for the TeaHive and Promontory, but there aren't any tasting notes for the Promontory. Anyone?

I've had these at a wine tasting before and they are EXCELLENT! Especially pairing with the right wines. In addition to the Teahive and Seahive we had an oustanding mango stilton, but it must've been a different dairy because I don't see it anywhere on Beehive's website. . .

Now I just need to figure out which combo(s) I want!

Can anyone put forward a good comparison as to a cheese that the interior of any/ all of these are like? I realize that they are flavored by the rubs, I am just curious as to the base texture and flavor. Jack? Cheddar? Dry jack? Asagio? Gouda?

Also, is the promontory a different style? How so?

I have only had the buzzed and IIRC it is slightly firmer than a Gouda.

Your answers!

1. No guarantee for T-day. Sorry, but it's best we're up front on that for you.
2. Yes, separate packaging, in the same shipping box. (I think that covers all angles, if not let me know.)

Well, we bought some directly from the Beehive Cheese Company in January, 2012 and, I must confess, still have two unopened 6 ounce 3/8 of an inch slabs that are still in good shape. We actually just opened one of the TeaHive a few weeks ago and it is still tasting really good. We did keep them in the downstairs fridge that is VERY cold.

They are a wonderful company with which to do business, but I'm not sure why they think such a thin slab of cheese is the way to go. I LOVE the one pound wedges! It is very difficult to slice the thin slabs to put onto crackers. However, the cheese is still excellent! I am looking forward to purchasing this cheese for the holidays!

Cool! I just opened the well-aged Promontory. It had a bit of a light haze on the exterior. I scraped it off and it is still VERY tasty! Actually, delicious! It is creamy on the mouth-feel & full-bodied with just a little edge.

I LOVE cheese but what would I do with 2 pounds of it in my fridge? Can you use these for grilled cheese or other applications or is it just for nibbling?

From the website:

Promontory, as well as all Beehive cheeses, is made from the milk of Jersey cows from Ogden’s Wadeland South Dairy. Wadeland’s Jersey cows enjoy 350 acres near the salty marshes, ponds and mudflats of the mineral-loaded soil of the Great Salt Lake. The same nutrient-rich soil that feeds thousands of migrating birds, feeds the lush alfalfa that the cows love to eat.

There's not much else on their website other than "Promontory is an Irish-style cheese with buttery, full-bodied texture and snappy, citrus-like fruity notes."

Here's a link to a nice description: http://www.sfgate.com/food/cheesecourse/article/Beehive-Cheese-Co-Promontory-makes-creamy-snack-2310661.php

I think I'll probably go in for some, but I am waiting to see if there is anything else offered tomorrow to take advantage of the $5 all day shipping.
