Kerrygold Aged Cheddar with Irish Whiskey – March Cheese of the Month

Kiss me, I’m Irish! The next holiday is just about here, and whether you’re Irish or not, I’m sure you’ll be celebrating at least a little bit on March 17th. Here at the BK Vineyard Markets, we’re celebrating St. Patty’s Day all month long with our Cheese of the Month for March: Kerrygold Aged Cheddar with Irish Whiskey.

If you’ve ever tried a cheese from Kerrygold creamery before, you know they rarely disappoint, and this cheese is no exception. Coming in small wheels, or truckles, each piece is coated in a layer of black wax, making for a stunning presentation. Slice through the outer layer to reveal the pale yellow interior of the cheese. Creamier than meets the eye, this aged cheddar delivers a full flavor and nice sharpness, accompanied by the back-notes of whiskey: an earthy woodsy sort of flavor that just brings the cheese to a whole other level. Even if you’re not a full-on whiskey guy or gal, this cheese is definitely worth giving a shot.

Kerrygold truckles are so much easier to crack open than they appear. Slice down the middle and the wax pops right off!


For the obvious pairing, enjoy this tasty treat from Kerrygold along with your favorite whiskey–keep it Irish with a glass of Jameson or Old Tom Horan. For beer, give it a taste with a Stout like Guinness. You can even venture off the path a bit with a glass of a balanced and oaky Bordeaux, maybe try Chateau Laville.

But it doesn’t stop there! Although this cheese is amazing on its own, I’d never leave you hanging without some ideas for food and accompaniments!

  • use in a cream sauce and pour over mashed potatoes
  • melt on top of French onion soup
  • melt on a Reuben instead of Swiss cheese
  • make Irish nachos!; used potatoes instead of chips and top with corned beef and Kerrygold Aged Cheddar with Irish Whiskey

And being our featured Cheese of the Month, we’re bringing you these Kerrygold truckles for only $9.99 $5.99 each! Don’t miss this deal- grab ’em at this amazing price while supplies last.
