At Kerrygold they know a thing or two about making cheese and this cheddar, infused with Irish whiskey is a testament to that.

The light yellow cheddar is encased in black wax; a nice contrast in colors which is important when you entertain. The flavor of this aged cheddar is rich and creamy and the added Irish whiskey is delicately smooth, woody and nutty; the combination is wonderful.

We hand-cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of 1 pound and 8 ounces and you can purchase an entire wheel of approximately 5 pounds.

Please note that wheels may vary slightly in total weight, you will be charged for the actual weight of the wheel that you will receive.

I had to try this cheese at room temperature to really appreciate it. It is then that the whiskey flavor comes through. Although subtle, the flavor is unmistakably a fine whiskey and there is this little pop of flavor like alcohol being released from a bubble that hits your palate in a tasty surprise. If you are someone who likes the taste of whiskey, you will love this cheese. I only pair this with mild, crisp apples so the flavor is not tampered with. This is a great product for the cheese board but those who don't drink may not be able to appreciate it's flavor. Hubby does not like this cheese and if I want to cook with alcohol he can taste the least little bit. Definitely worth trying.
