Okay, I'll bite...

Any kind of goat cheese, especially Midnight Moon from Cypress Grove.
Garroxta (aged goat cheese from Calabria) is great, not the least because of the name.
If you like Jack, aged "Dry Jack" will make your ears vibrate.
And if you like the triple cream brie-type (cow's milk) cheeses, Brillat-Savarin, with 75% butterfat...I can't describe it....(eyes roll back in head).

brie is good stuff! Stick it with a baggett and you've got a before-the-ride treat.

Cheddar and pepper jack are nice. Not cheap crap you buy in bulk that you cant even taste, though.

Do I have to pick one? Depends on the mood. Chedder, Swiss, pepper jack, and occassionally Goulda.

Cougar Gold is good stuff. I grew up on Tillamook, and I never realized until I got out on my own and bought some generic chedder that there really is a difference. Forget the happy cows commercials, the local cows are way better.

If you like cheese, you should check out small, artisan producers in your area.
I've found two I really like, and I'm sill exploring.

MouCo's Colorouge: it's a camembert-style cheese, from Fort Collins, CO.
www.mouco.com

Also from Fort Collins is Bingham Hill's Tumbleweed cheeses.
It's a sage, rosemary, and red chile flake dusted bloomy rind cheese.
www.binghamhill.com

I also dig cotswald and sage derby.

Neals Yard. Keen's Cheddar whole milk non pasteurized. the way cheese is
supposed to taste.
Stilton or Shropshire for a blue cheese.
Cave aged Emmenthal.

I've had the blue/brie combo its wonderful on fresh french bread

Gargonzola is good. I saute onions, mushrooms and garlic in olive oil, when everything is soft put in half cup of milk, warm and put in gargonzola. Blend real well melting cheese, then pour on pasta. A glass of Pinot Gris and an artichoke go well.

My basic rule for cheese: Cheese initially from a country that was once a part of the Roman Empire=good; cheeses developed outside the Roman Empire = mediocre to bad. Yeah I know I miss a few good ones, but I miss a whole lot of bad ones.
