Combine the blue cheese, lemon juice, Worcestershire, hot sauce, salt and black pepper in a medium-size mixing bowl. Using the back of a fork, mash the mixture together to form a thick paste. Drizzle in the olive oil, stirring continuously with the work until the mixture is creamy. Add the buttermilk and mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
