Humboldt Fog

So I saw that my local cheese shop was having a sale on Humboldt Fog cheese, and so I decided to pick some up. I've had it before, and enjoyed it, but this piece of cheese had a nasty, sort of ammonia/chemically taste, especially near the rind. It was inedible. What's the deal? Did I get ripped off, or is that par for the course with this variety of soft cheese?
