Cabot Clothbound is a special batch of Cabot Creamery cheddar aged by Jasper Hill Farm at their special calibrated vault cellars. The cheese is aged for 10-15 months, during aging period it is constantly brushed, turned, and monitored for quality. Clothbound is traditional natural-rind, bandaged cheddar made from pasteurised cow’s milk. It has a crumbly texture and nutty aroma with a deeply savoury and slightly tangy flavour with caramel sweetness to the finish. To enjoy Clothbound, pair it with a charcuterie, apple jelly, or a rich chestnut honey. It goes well with an off-dry sparkling apple cider, hoppy ale, or an oaked Cabernet Sauvignon. This artisan cheese has won many medals including gold at 2014 World Cheese Awards.

First bite was strong. Gets milder farther from the rind. Near it wet cheese cloth flavor pronounced. Flavors opened up after a few bites.

Not bad. Step or two up from regular Cabot
