This Week's Warehouse Tasting: Are You Experienced Edition

I'll tell you one thing, the reason people love Jimi Hendrix and "Purple Haze" must not have anything to do with the lyrics. I was going to maim them anyways, by subbing in cheese related words, so it's probably for the best. Purple Haze is also a goat milk cheese, you see, and it's made at Cypress Grove in California. Lavender and fennel pollen are folded into the creamy rounds and the combination is intriguing but not overpowering. 

If interesting herb mixtures in your cheese is your thing, then you'll be pleased to hear that we'll also have Cowgirl Creamery's seasonal cheese Devil's Gulch. It's a Jersey cow milk brie dusted with sweet and spicy red pepper flakes. If you're more of a purist or Willie Nelson fan, then we'll also have two Texas selections including a Havarti from Sand Creek Farm and Texas Gold Cheddar from the Veldhuizens. Though if we had to, we'd bet on Willie having some affection for Purple Haze himself.
