Grand Reserve Cheddar
Grafton Grand Reserve Cheddar highlights the best features in our aged cheddar. Hand-selected for exceptional flavor and texture when young, resulting in a robust, savory, slightly sweet cheddar that is well-balanced and complex. Hints of whiskey appear during the lingering finish.
This is a cheese with character, that deserves to be savored. When pairing, choose similarly strong-flavored foods or beverages: whiskey or hearty beers; dried tart cherries; roasted meats; mustard; spicy salumi. Grand Reserve Cheddar can be grated or crumbled over food to add a zesty sharpness to a hearty salad or bowl of chili.
