Roquefort isn't similar to blue cheese -- it is blue cheese.
There are many varieties from many different places. I'd suggest trying some Maytag blue from Iowa (which I think is some of the best) or some from Denmark, as the latter is creamier and less pungent.
I was in London 2 weeks ago and went to Neil's Yard Dairy to get some cheddar but they were closed for a bank holiday!
And I couldn't go back the next day!
I love so many cheeses ... I am sort of a cheese freak
.... but generally like the well aged ones better, like aged gouda and Vella jack.
I generally buy small amounts of artisanal cheeses, but always have some greyere, manchego and jarlsberg in the fridge. And kraft singles.
I don't go at all for flavored/herbed/smoked cheese. I like the flavor of the cheese, not the additives. Exception being Boursin or something like that.
