Should Stilton be salty?

I am not averse to salty foods--in fact I get chastised by friends and family sometimes for over-salting. I am not a fan of blue cheese, but had read that Stilton is less pungent tasting (milder), so I bought some. I'll admit it is milder, but OMG, it is so salty I can barely eat it. I wanted to try it for our weekly fruit, wine and cheese dinner, so I had a sample bite tonight and I just couldn't believe how salty it was. Is this the way it's supposed to be?
