O'Banon is a riff on the classic French goat cheese Banon. Both are fresh chèvre wrapped in chestnut leaves, but cheesemaker, extraordinaire, Judy Schad takes O'Banon and puts a Kentuckiana spin on it by soaking the leaves in Kentucky Bourbon instead of eau-de-vie. The result is a fresh chèvre with lots of character. Its texture is dense, clay-like and smooth. The leaves lend some tannic, herbaceous notes to the flavor that finishes with a hint of vanilla from the Kentucky Bourbon.
