This pasteurized cheddar comes for the Cabot Creamery, which was one of the first family farm cooperatives in Vermont. This natural-rind cheddar is aged for 10-12 months in the cellars at Jasper Hill near Greensboro Vermont, where the young cheddar gets a layer of lard and a cloth, hence the name clothbound.
This English style cheddar is unpretentious and well balanced. It is layered in a concert of sweet, savory, nutty, and tangy; and then finishes with the mellowness of smooth velvet tones of caramel.
Cost: sold out per 8oz.
