The Comté Cheese Association has updated their “Wheel of Aromas”, a handy guide to the 83 smells and aromas commonly found in Comté cheese. This is designed for Comté specifically, but it’s a useful reference for anyone looking to expand their cheese vocabulary and sensory evaluation skills. Via Comte-USA.com:
The “Comité Interprofessionnel du Comté” has created a wheel showcasing the aromas of Comté. It counts 83 terms or descriptors that correspond to the most frequently found smells and aromas in Comté, grouped within 6 families. In a ripe Comté, tasters generally pick up 2 or 3 main families and mention 5 to 10 descriptors precisely. The 6 families are: Lactic, Fruity, Roasted, Vegetal, Animal, Spicy.
Tasting is subjective, and the aromas evolve/vary with the Comté’s terroir, season of production and length of time aging in the cellars. These families of aromas might help you to choose the style of Comté that you prefer. And, of course, the best Comté is the one that tastes best to you! Let’s taste and discover your favorite!
Anti-rape wear. Its almost impervious to knife attacks and tearing/stretching.
The waist and thigh extremities of the garment are cut and tear resistant (the guy in the video cant cut them with industrial scissors) and they cannot be moved more than a few centimetres when locked into place, the forward area in front of the genitals is also reinforced.
Please, for the love of god, even if you cant donate, just spread this idea wherever you can, they need $50,000 to be able to manufacture it and they currently have just over $6,000 with 20 days left.
