Imperial Buck_0577

Richly Nutty, Robust Extra-Aged Handmade Cheddar

Best in Class – World Championship Cheese Contest & Trophy for The Best USA Cheese – International Cheese Awards 

Like the award winning Fawn and Stag, Deer Creek’s The Imperial Buck is a handmade, bandaged-wrapped Cheddar. It is carefully aged for a longer period of time to allow for an even greater development of its richly nutty flavor and sweet butterscotch finish. The unique nuttiness is pronounced, yet blends beautifully with the buttery sweetness of the Cheddar. The crystalline crunch offers a nice contrast to the cheese’s creamy texture. The unique beauty of the cheese is how perfectly the nuttiness, creaminess, butteriness, and sweetness complement and balance each other. It is truly a one-of-a-kind, outstanding Best In Class Cheddar.
