What does 40 year old Cheddar taste like?

A lot like 28 year old.  :)  I wonder, WI folk, have you ever been to the Wisconsin Cheese Mart?

Cheddar is my favorite, for a mass market cheese Cabot Farms Special Reserve is decent and very sharp.

How does it compare to Tillamok Extra Sharp?  I love a nice sharp cheddar on my burgers.

I love a good cheese.
Having said that I need to note that I am no where near an expert nor snobbish in my choices.
I have tried both the brands mentioned above and IMO both were neck and neck except the Cabot was a bit rubbery .
Just sayin'

Tillamok extra sharp is about the same as Cabots extra sharp white cheddar. The Reserve is a lot sharper, dryer crumbly texture.

I will look for the Reserve and give that a try.  Thanks for the help, now I'm getting hungry for a good burger! licklips.gif

Kuan, I haven't been there for many years. I read about this cheese being tasted, but I wouldn't have the nerve to put it in my mouth. My French friends say I eat cheese as a child does (and I do NOT mean Julia!). No stinky cheese for this girl. I've had seven-year-old cheddar, though: crunchy with crystals, tart and rich. Mmmmm....

 

I have to say I'm embarassingly parochial in that I buy Wisconsin cheddar when I have the choice. No Cabot's for this adopted Wisconsinite. There's too much good cheese made here: Clock Shadow Creamery in Milwaukee; Widmer's in Theresa; Carr Valley in LaValle (that's Sid Cook's place); Chalet Cheese Cooperative in Monroe.... and that's just a very few in one corner of the state.

I gotta say I really really want to go to this place.  :)  I'd probably go broke and die of too much cheese!  I'm a near novice at cheese but I love it so much.

I am not a stinky cheese fan either. Give me sharp hard cheeses.

I have yet to taste a cheese i didn't like, except for anything processed, or camembert, and even with camembert I believe I still can acquire a taste for it.
