GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Organic Valley. Cultured butter has rich, subtle flavor, aromatic hints of cheese, and is often higher in butterfat than regular butter. Organic Valley is a lovely example, with a creamy finish, a beautiful milky flavor, and rich, farm-fresh grassy notes.
TASTE TEST AWARDS: Lurpak. Well-rounded with a pleasantly salty zing at the finish.
Chimay. A beautiful shade of buttery yellow on the knife, with buttery richness to match.
