Wikipedia: Livarot cheese
Livarot is a French cheese of the Normandy region, originating in the commune of Livarot, and protected by an Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) since 1975.

It is a soft, pungent, washed rind cheese made from cow’s milk. The normal weight for a round of Livarot is 450 g, though it also comes in other weights. It is sold in cylindrical form with the orangish rind wrapped in 3 to 5 rings of dried reedmace (Typha latifolia). For this reason, it has been referred to as ‘colonel’, as the rings of dried bullrush resemble the stripes on a colonel’s uniform.
