Wisconsin is leading in Cheddar production, which makes it no surprise that this Cheddar is one of our most popular cheeses. This Wisconsin Cheddar has been aged for over 5 years, giving it a rich flavor and slightly tangy bite. As cheddar ages it loses its smooth, firm texture and becomes more granular and crumbly. This is a traditional Wisconsin golden colored cheddar. The sharp flavor makes this cheese perfect for any beer or wine tasting, gives sandwiches a delicious zing, and can even be paired perfectly with gourmet sausage.

very good
By Dan Rumsey

I like the sharpness and the texture is good for a five year old.

hooked on these sharp cheeses, lol
By Renee Clark

We started out by trying this 5-year old extra sharp cheese and fell in love with our first bite. I was starting to wonder if anyone actually made a really sharp cheddar anymore. This is a delicious cheese and it's fun to have all the different year extra sharp cheddar cheeses on hand to compare with family and friends. It's exactly as they say here, sharp yet creamy. :)

Yummy Sharp :)
By Renee Clark

Finally, a 'sharp' cheddar cheese worthy of the name. A firm cheese with a bold flavor. We liked it so much we quickly ordered it again.

5 yr old cheddar
By Felix Kowalski

Best cheddar I have ever eaten.

5 year cheddar
By Dan Rumsey

I love the 5 year old cheddar it has just the right sharpness for my taste. I find that most blocks at that age are just starting to get crumbly so I usually set it out for a few minutes before eating.
