Identify these cheeses

Someone gave me some unlabeled cheese that I'm trying to identify. One is very common on the tip of tongue. It is a soft gooey cheese with a rind that is mostly brownish but has some white too. Very strong taste.

The other I've never tasted it is also a very strong cheese, but firm in a wedge, not hard, but firm. It is almost a brownish yellow but it is dotted with lighter spots. There are also a few specks of black and even fewer of red.

Yeah that's not a lot to go off of, and so not chowish of me to be able to detail them better. Oh and I think they were from Trader Joes... Yeah, good luck!

  1. The first one sounds like limburger. What shape is it?

      Sorry it was round, and it's not limburger, it nowhere near that stinky!!

        Epoisses is my last guess, but the "rind" on Epoisses is really a couple brandy-like washes.
