13-YEAR-OLD EXTRA-SHARP AGED CHEDDAR CHEESE

(177 customer reviews)

I’M MATURE FOR MY AGE
This cheese is so mature it’s been through graduate school, has traveled the world, and seen some sh*t. So sharp, you’ll need gloves to eat it.

AGED TO PERFECTION, AND THEN SOME.

Nearly 20 years ago, a cabal of Wisconsin cheesemakers came together under the cloak of darkness to concoct the sharpest cheddar ever. They succeeded in their quest but deemed the world too benign at that time to truly enjoy their curds. So they locked the cheese away, awaiting a day when society teetered on the precipice of insanity and desperately needed an impossibly sharp cheddar.

    M mother said it reminds her of the cheese that her father used to buy. We liked it so much that I placed orders for a few people on 6/13/21.

    Absolutely outstanding, been a cheese whore as long as I can remember (64 now) I have home made to Amish as well as back roads party store extra sharp cheese and I complement them all for their efforts, but this 13 year old extra has sharp has the best elevated taste in a small bit, its like blowing up a balloon of flavor till it plateaus and then chase it with a sip of ICE COLD BEER for a second round of flavor that mates well with each other. Well done.

    Well Josh your right. You need to “SHARPEN UP OUR GAME”. Maybe it’s just me but I can’t find any cheddar cheese that is as “sharp” as I remember it. 60 years ago when a boy my father bought sharp cheddar that was so dry and a bit crumbly & it could be left unrefrigerated without molding. Crackers were a must otherwise the skin on the roof of your month was in jeopardy. That was SHARP cheese – WHERE has it gone ???? Your Big Cheese is as good as the myriad of others that I have tried; BUT it truly isn’t sharp. Sharp cheese doesn’t leave oil on the plate at room temp. That oil should have be absorbed into the crystals. It doesn’t melt in your mouth – it jumps around wanting to be chewed! I’m pleased that some people find The Big Cheese exceptional & maybe some one will help me find a really SHARP Cheddar! 😭

    Wonderful sharp Cheddar. We love it with our favorite full bodied double IPA Brew!

  6. Rick

    Fantastic cheese.

  7. Ian Coyle

    This cheese is great, my wife got me some to try. It was so good I now ordered the larger block, it is near impossible to get sharp cheddar cheese in the USA. I was always having to get from the UK. But not now, this is so good

    Our family brought up on cheese,the sharper,the better,bought a 2.5# block & just purchased a 5# block to share for fathers day with our son’s families.

    Great, full flavored cheddar!

    I tried a 2.5 pound block after reading an enthusiastic article online. The idea of a one up extra sharp white cheddar did intrigue me. My suggestion: if you want your purchase to last any time at all, don’t do like I did and put it out at family gatherings, and share it with friends, it will disappear very quickly. Rather, be like Gollum and hide it in the fridge in an incognito brussels sprouts container, while muttering madly “My Precious….” OK, yes, I exaggerate, but this is some seriously sharp excellent cheese.

    I have previously commented, but feel compelled to do it again. There is no doubt that The Big Cheese is GREAT! It can also make you great as it’s probably one of the best gifts that can be given. There is no reason needed to give this cheese as it is pure PLH. Peace, Love AND Happiness all rolled into one. Never forget the correct answer to “when is Mothers Day?” EVERY DAY! Same goes for Big Cheese giving. Making the world smile, one piece at a time. After my next 40 I will be in the 100 pound club.

  17. Eric

    Very good cheese OUTSTANDING BUT IF YOU WANT SELL MORE YOU ARE GOING TO have TO PAY for shipping COST IT COST ENOUGH AS IT IS let ALONE HAVE TO PAY FOR shipping cost also

  18. Jack

    Best Cheddar ever!

  19. Lucy Tisdale

    Sorry, I was disappointed. I really expected the cheese to be loaded with calcium lactate crystals. I knew it was not quite right when it sliced, rather than crumbled. Flavor is good, just not what I was looking for.

      Hi Lucy – I’m sorry to hear that! We’ll be launching our 15-year cheddar later this year – hopefully that one will be sharp enough for you! – Josh

  20. Mic Lowther

    Best cheese I ever tasted. Won’t buy anything else from now on.

  21. Cindy T

    I had tried some from a friend and my husband and I both loved it. When that ran out we just had to order our own.

  22. Alan Hoffman

    It’s ok. Smooth, no bite, salty.

  23. Michael Losiniecki

    This cheese is ridiculously good! Just think of the care it’s been under for all these years! What were you doing the last 13 years while this cheese was aging to perfection?! #therealdeal

  24. Rick

    I am starting a collection of aged cheddars.i havent opened yours as of yet. My moms cousin is a qc inspector for Cabot and I have some from him a few years ago that I haven’t opened yet either. I recently purchased some 15 year old Wisconsin cheddar that was sold out ofnew York. Its very creamy but not too sharp. The salt is crystallized and its yummy ..I really like super sharp cheeses. Thats why I bought yours.
