Soft ripened

Maple Rum Leaf


Hildene Maple Rum Leaf is a soft-ripened, bloomy rind cheese wrapped in maple leaves harvested from Hildene’s property. The leaves are soaked in Mad River Distillery’s Maple Cask Rum before being applied to the cheese. Maple Rum Leaf comes in 4oz rounds made from pasteurized cow milk and aged for 3 weeks. The texture is dense at the center and gooey just beneath the rind. the leaves add a floral, spicy aroma and a hint of sweetness to the rind. Due to the labor intensive nature of this cheese, Maple Rum Leaf is available only in limited quantities from November to March.

Made in the same style as Storm but lightly dusted with a layer of fine ash for a piquant flavor. Some people are reminded of blue cheese as it suggests smoky flavors. It is not only delicious but absolutely beautiful on a cheese plate.

Cheesemaker Tom Gilbert’s expertise in soft ripened cheese brings velvety texture and form combining with Head Cheesemaker Rick Wood’s passion for sublime and memorable flavors. We’ve lovingly named the result Lillé, our own version of a French coulommiers. Thicker than a Brie, this decadently sumptuous soft ripened cheese has a downy white bloom with a supple paste core enveloped by a rich creamy body. Reveals a subtle mushroom nuance with notes of nut and butter and a lingering tang.
