The Promontory is an Irish-style cheddar cheese made with pasteurized Jersey milk. It is produced by Beehive Cheese Company in Utah, United States.

After smoking it is allowed to mature for over 8 months. Promontory Apple Walnut Smoked cheese pairs well with dark ales, straight bourbon, Scotch. Try it with Salami, on a chicken, avocado sandwich.
