It's definitely salty and tastes almost like an ultra crisp piece of bacon in some ways (I'm the last person to claim that I have great tastebuds so take what I say with a grain of salt). There are tons of crystals so I've really enjoyed the texture. There's a slight bit of ammonia smell but I'm not sure if it's because I had it vacuum packed for a couple weeks from our Paris trip. I didn't recall as much ammonia smell when I sampled it in Paris. With that said, it's still really tasty.
I'm really missing the raw milk Petit Gaugry we ate the day before we left. The Laurent Dubois folks didn't think the Petit or Epoisses would survive the plain ride since they were both super ripe...
