Description

This 15 Year Old Cheddar isn't just cheese - it's a work of art. This limited edition cheese is not to be missed. It's smooth, sharp, and bursting with flavor. Spread throughout is crystallization that can only be found in a fine aged cheese. As cheddar ages, it goes from mild to sharp, developing a tangier taste as the microbes and enzymes transform texture and intensify flavor. This transformation is largely a result of the breakdown of proteins and milk fat giving aged Cheddar cheese crystals. Cheddar is usually known for its trademark yellow color, as the cheese is colored with annatto (a natural dye). This Wisconsin Cheddar does not contain color additives.

By Carl McGowan sr.

the 15 year cheddar is FABULOUS , has lots of crystals in it . i HIGHLY recomend this cheese . it is not as good as the 22 year cheddar , but you get more bang for your buck here . so far i have bought 2 pounds of this since Christmas , i just cant help myself . as i write this i am waiting for fedex to get here with my second order of 22 year , what can i say , im a RAT when it comes to cheese . i messed up and left my plate on the coffee table which had 22 year and smoked venison on it , turned my back and my dog ATE MY CHEESE AND LEFT THE VENISON !!!! does that tell you how GREAT Wisconsin Cheese Marts cheese is the little turd likes the 15 year , but LOVES the 22 year , i highly recomend the 22 year also . you wont be disapointed
