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.

Nice Aged Cheddar
By Jeffrey Falkowski

5 year old sharp with the great taste, nice crystals and just crumbly enough without being too crumbly. If you like aged cheddar, this is it.

After opening it had an ammonia smell to it. Threw it away.

I was looking for a cheese like my Father bought ( when he could afford it ) in the 1940's and i found it. At least as near as it can be. The 5 year old Sharp Cheddar is excellent. Going for the Extra Sharp next time, and there will be a next time. It was well packaged and arrived nice and cold. Thank you Wisconsin Cheese Mart , i will order again soon.
