There are a lot of people who like cheese so much that they are familiar with the different types of cheeses available. One such cheese that people like is the Silchester also known as Huntsman. The name Huntsman is not used often because this is already trademarked. This type of cheese is the choice of some people because it is dense.

The creamy texture makes it a favorite among those who are fond of creamy cheeses. The flavor is saltier and sharper as compared to other types of cheeses. It will have a somewhat nutty taste when you eat it. There aren’t a lot of details that will show when exactly this cheese was made.
