Cahill Cheddar with Whiskey
Cahill's Whiskey Cheese is produced by Cahill's farm in Limerick, Ireland. It is made using pasteurized sheep's and cow's milk mixed with Kilbeggan Irish Whiskey sourced from the Cooley distillery in Co. Louth. After the curd is formed and whey is drained off, the whiskey is added which gives the cheese a mottled, golden hue. Actually, it is a simple vintage cheddar cheese but with a blend of Kilbeggan whiskey. The taste of the cheese is smooth and rich without the whiskey overwhelming the milky flavors. Enjoy the cheese with fruit or sandwich.
Rogue Creamery Caveman Blue
Caveman Blue cheese is a rich, complex blue that is deliciously sweet and fruity with slight vanilla tones and a texture of butter. Although its moniker and mold-riddled exterior imply a lack of refinement, these wheels are anything but. A rugged natural rind allows the Caveman to release a bit of moisture and develop a thick, buttery texture. During its maturation, luscious cow milk and blue cultures are transformed into a golden-hued paste which tastes of sweet, fresh buttermilk with nuances of beef and bacon, tropical fruit, grass, and hay.
Chimay Trappist Cheese
A semi-soft cheese washed in Chimay Première, made using fresh, creamy milk from the Chimay region. Trappist monasteries have been making cheese and brewing beer for centuries, and this classic Chimay cheese is a fine specimen of Trappist expertise. Its rind is washed with Chimay beer during the aging process, infusing it with delicious and traditional flavor. This cheese's pungent-yet-mild taste is noted for its fruitiness with overtones of apricot and peach, which is complemented by a hint of bitterness from the hops in the beer!
