Bold & Nutty Specialty Cheddar

Gold Medal Winner – International Cheese Awards

Select vats of The Fawn are chosen for further aging to allow for the development of the intense, bold flavor characteristics of The Stag. It is rugged, driving strong toffee and butterscotch notes, yet possesses the sweet finish of The Fawn. As it ages, The Stag develops a hint of crystalline crunch to further enliven the taste buds with rich texture as well as flavor. The Stag, a true Wisconsin Original, is a traditional bandage-wrapped 22 lb. daisy wheel Cheddar. Chosen as one of the “101 Best Cheeses of the Year” by Culture Magazine.

  • Nibblies: Cashews, Dried Cranberries, Dried Cherries, Pistachos, Pumpernickel
