    The classic cheese with a good port is Stilton.

    I also like a crumbly white cheese such as Wensleydale or Lancashire or Caerphilly.

    Definitely!  Stilton goes extremely well.  A blue cheese will work too.

    The Blue cheese was excellent.

    Since it was after dinner...we added some very dark chocolate to the table as well.

    All in all a very, enjoyable evening.

    It's good to have such great advice so readily available.

    Thank you.
