Aged cheddar is a big deal in Wisconsin, but 15-year cheddar is hard to find. Hook’s Cheese Company releases a few hundred pounds every fall for the holidays! Almost every ounce is spoken for, since it's such a special cheese. It has a rich, robust, extra-sharp flavor and is full of tyrosine crystals that crunch for an added epicurean experience.
