Mystic Cheese Co. Cachalot
This standout cheddar-like cheese from Connecticut’s Mystic Cheese Co. has a profile similar to traditional English creations like Lancashire. Aged for four months, it’s notably creamy and buttery, with dense, toothsome paste that crumbles beautifully. Cachalot’s fruity undertones give it a slightly fermented flavor, which makes it ideal for pairing with wine. Try it with a glass of Merlot, a dollop of Black Cherry Confit, and a rustic cracker like Jan’s Farmhouse Cranberry and Pistachio Crisps.
