Newport 1665 is an artisan, unpasteurised cow's milk cheese from Mr Moyden's Grove Farm at Newport, Shropshire. Named after the great fire of Newport which destroyed most of the medieval town, it is a smoked version of Newport cheese. The milk is from British Friesian cows.
Wheels of Newport cheese are smoked whole over oak chips at nearby Bings Heath Smokery. This results in a chocolate-coloured rind and a creamy, flaky interior. It has a flavour of melted butter and a mild smoky aftertaste.
Newport 1665 won a Silver Medal at the World Cheese Awards 2007.
