Store Hosts Tasting of 40-year-old Cheddar
Samples of the oldest cheese commercially available in the world were passed out last Saturday at Wisconsin Cheese Mart in Milwaukee. The 40-year-old vintage cheddar delighted those of all ages, or at least those willing to shell out ten dollars an ounce.
The Mikkelsons described the taste as smooth.
“It was creamy, it was sharp, it was real sharp,” Ryan Mikkelson said. Neither had any qualms about eating something older than them.
“Not even the slightest,” said Ashley Mikkelson, who joked that she loved cheese so much she would marry it if she could.
