Milton Creamery
Flory's Truckle


Milton Creamery worked hand-in-hand with the Flory Family of Jamesport, Missouri to develop this aged clothbound cheddar. Instead of aging it in plastic, this cheese ages with the cheesecloth left on the outside, allowing the cheese to breathe and resulting in a dry, crumbly texture. The cheese is allowed to dry for ten days and is then coated with lard (!) to minimize mold penetration and aged twelve months. It has a peppery aroma and a rich grassy flavor.

What is a truckle? In Old English, a truckle means cylinder shaped. Traditionally, old world cheddars are formed in truckles.

Pairing Recommendations

Pour a glass of...

  • Bourbon

    Think: Caramelly, crystalline cheeses have the strength to stand up to bolder booze. With sweet bourbon, these cheeses become almost like dessert.

  • Strong Beers

    Barleywine, Old Ale, Strong Ale, Scotch Ale

    Big and intense, with an alcohol punch to match, don’t underestimate any of these guys. Flavors will favor the malty side of the spectrum, with dark fruit, leather, and tobacco notes common. You will taste the booze. And it will be delicious.
    Pair with: A cheese equally big in flavor. Dunbarton Blue has subtle bluing and a savory-sweet gouda flavor that will be a perfect match for these tough brews.

  • Malbec

    This rustic wine is inky and dark, full-bodied with plenty of tannins. Fruity flavors of plums and berries are contrasted by spice and leather.
    Pair with: Equally toothsome cheeses like Boerenkaas Gouda.
