HI There,

It's funny you should ask. I work as a professional chef and I just received some of the promontory yesterday.
This cheese is great. It is a firm cheese... Halfway between a cheddar and a good parmesan cheese in texture. Smooth as silk when you bite into it. Not hard, like I expected, but has a some nuttiness to it, but also some underpinnings of fruit.
I eat a lot of cheese, and at work I get to try some of the best cheeses out there. I think this is my favorite cheese I have eaten, ever. And, that is saying a lot.

Ha, ha, ha . . . . WRONG!

Promontory is the noun used for any building, room or structure hosting a prom. For example, "The high school gymnasium will be used as this year's promontory".

I live a few miles from their HQ, and and I look forward to these Woot! deals for their prices! I LOVE every cheese that they make that I've tried!

Pretty much the same as the TeaHive and Barely Buzzed but without the rub.

And as much as I like the ones with the rubs, the Promontory is my favorite. All of these cheeses keep really well in the original packaging, and we have 4 pounds on hand already, but this offer is irresistible.

Hey there all you Wooters!
Thanks Mike for the great plug.

Chipgreen,
True, Teahive and Barely Buzzed do start from our Promontory recipe. However, we rub them when they are new and the rubs impart complex and distinctive flavors through to the middle of the cheese as they age. Teahive ends up with a very fruity final flavor completely unique and individual. I hope this helps provide clarification.

What's the fridge-drawer life on these? I'm a second from pulling the trigger but 2lbs is a lot of cheese.

Kylemittskus,
The cheese will be fine as long as the seal is good. I believe we put a 6 month shelf life on our retail cuts so customers can have some assurance of how long they have.
Upon opening, I would consume within 30 days, unless you have a small vacuum sealer. Our cheese is pretty resilient if you keep it wrapped up tight.

Hahaha, 2 pounds of cheese is a warm up if it is really good cheese and from what I have read, this is some really good cheese. I sent some of this to my sister some time ago and she raved about it and she knows good food. I can eat a pound of good cheese in a week or less. I am going to Amsterdam on Saturday for 3 days, cheese heaven! Did I mention I like good cheese?

My dogs like me, that is important.

Hmm. 29.99 + 5.00 Shipping. So $35.00 for two pounds. That is probably a good deal for those who don't have this very good brand of cheese. I just saw it in our local Smith's supermarket today. The Promontory was a unit price of $15.99 a pound, the Teahive 17.99. So $16 + 18. Total of $34 (plus tax). They were selling it in smaller than one-pound wedges.

I believe the $29.99 price includes shipping, so still a little bit cheaper than the store. Plus, they deliver it directly to your front door!

JOATMON,
Great question!
Our happy cheese-makers were cutting the cheese(insert juvenile joke here) all morning to make your Woot/Beehive Cheese fantasies come true.
This one should be a very fast turn around. If all goes well we will be shipping these out Monday March 13th. Also, I believe all packages should be going out FedEx.
Order now or forever be sad you didn't(until the next Beehive Woot!)

You're right, I do remember a fruitiness to the flavor of the TeaHive. I love all your cheeses, so delicious!

Thanks for the additional deets....

Storage tip for Beehive cheeses I've bought from Woot: Once opened, I cut off a wedge to serve then put the remainder in a sealed Foodsaver vacuum bag that I cut (purposely) extra long. Each time we wanted another wedge I just cut it open, cut a wedge, put the rest back in the slightly shorter bag and re-vacuum-sealed it and put back in the fridge. It lasted this way until both the cheese (and the bag) were gone, about 6-7 months (at most depending on social schedule). The cheese was every bit as delicious then as when we first opened it.

I'm going on a ski trip... what do I do if I send it to the condo and it arrives after I leave..? I really want some, but not sure if to order now because of the timing!

Also how is it normally $53? On the website it's 20 and 21 a pound, which doesn't add up.

Love the Beehive Cheese, and being local to them allows us to stop into their outlet store for all sorts of flavors they make. Tonight we were having the Hatch Chili Rubbed (current favorite), Spicy Habanero Squeaky Bee Curds and Smoked Apple Walnut along with several wine choices.
Buy this stuff - it is wonderful cheese.

I'm taking this as a compliment.
Yes I'm moving. And I've had offers to move next to tytiger, klezman and now you. But truth be told I'm probably staying over here somewhere...

What this really means is that all you need to find some local wine drinking friends.
