Stinking Bishop belongs in this bracket. Each circular slab hums like a sweaty codpiece but smacks of delicious, complex creaminess. It hammers on the senses with foul-smelling lusciousness.

Monks, a wife beater, the threat of extinction, and a monstrous rabbit have all played a hand in its status. It’s officially the smelliest cheese in Britain.
