I ran across your blog today. Thanks for the positive comments about our store!

In regards to the motive questioning, I would be happy to talk with you any time to let you ask any question you want.

In regards to our Flagship cheese tasting like Cougar Gold, in several articles I have been very open about it being our inspiration (see Washington State Magazine). In the article you are quoting, I really told the reporter I could taste the difference between Cougar Gold and Flagship. Cougar Gold has a fruity taste that we did not want and regarded as a flaw.

We really did go through a two month "taste the world" of cheese process and ended up targeting a variant of Cougar Gold.

Anyway, I appreciate your passion for cheese and just wanted to stand up for our stuff....
