In describing this cheddar by its age, we embrace an old English tradition of distinguishing cheeses. The aging of cheddar is so critical to the development of its characteristic flavor, that we feel labeling the cheddar in this way best conveys to you the taste you can expect.
Their award winning 6 Month Cheddar is hickory wood cold smoked for up to 8 hours to give it a subtly sweet, bacon-like flavor that is pleasing to the palate without overpowering it.
