I got a tin of this as a gift from an elderly couple (huge Wazzu fans) when I first moved to the PNW. I may be biased, because I love just about any cheese. But it is worth getting for any casual get-together.

I lived on the Palouse a number of years ago and fell in love with this cheese. I order a few cans every few years, and can attest that they only get better with age. I recently cracked open a can from 2007 and it was outstanding.

I do not regret the entirely too much Cougar cheese my colleagues and I ate while spending the week in Spokane for a conference. The hotel had a delicious toasted pitas and melted cougar cheese on their menu, and we had it sent to our workroom many, many times. :laughing:
