1 Year Aged Cheddar
A younger version of our flagship cheddar, aged for one full year to achieve the classic New England cheddar profile: comforting, lightly tangy, and rich. When determining which batches to age for 1 Year Cheddar, we look for slightly creamier textures and sweeter flavors that are best showcased in a relatively young cheese.
With an aroma of butter and fresh grass, our 1 Year Cheddar is mellow yet balanced, with aromas of fresh apples and butter. Flavors start off bright and lemony, evolving into a rich and nutty finish that is both comforting and satisfying.
This is a pleasant and mild table cheese; try it paired with fresh grapes or sliced fresh apples for a juicy counterpoint to its rich and buttery flavors. 1 Year Cheddar is also perfect for melting. Flavors becomes milder when melted, so mix with stronger cheeses to add character to a dish, if desired.
