Malt Whisky Cheddar

Postby Virginia Gentleman » Sat Dec 16, 2006 3:25 am

While browsing the cheese aisle at my local grocery store tonight I found a cheddar cheese imported from England. It is called mature cheddar with malt whisky. It doesn't say what whisky they used but it sure is good. Has anyone else tried this?

The cheese I found is not smoked. It just says that malt whisky was blended into the cheese.

I've had several whisky cheeses, although I can't at the moment remember any brands. They were all tasty--it seems to be a good combination, unlike the whisky tablet I've had. I have a chunk of Moine Mhor tablet here that is well past its sell-by date and needs disposal....
