Should raw milk raclette smell like this?

I bought a wedge of raw milk raclette tonight at Whole Foods. I have never tried a cheese I haven't liked, but the internet suggests raclette has a pleasant smell, and it's sweet/nutty/etc, whereas mine definitely has a strong sweaty sock smell. Though it was better after heating on crackers, there were still a few bites here and there that put me off with the taste.
I would just throw it out or suck it up and eat it, but 1. I'm new to the world of raw milk and slightly nervous about getting sick and 2. I paid a lot for it. If raw milk products go bad, do they smell like this, or is this just raclette?
