The Sharp Cheese That Pairs Perfectly With Buffalo Trace Bourbon
Buffalo Trace Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and sharp cheddar make a legendary pairing thanks to the nutty, rich, and robust flavors that they share.
The cheese’s sharpness matches the liquor’s boldness, so the duo balances out each other’s piquant flavors. The dominant flavors pair perfectly with the sharpness of the cheese.
While cheddar cheese isn't aged for a minimum of eight years like Buffalo Trace, it is aged for about nine months, which gives it that mouthwatering "sharpness."
Sharp cheddar is generally tangy, acidic, and has more bitter-tasting peptides. This matured "bite" makes it ideal for pairing with Buffalo Trace's barrel char and biting spice.
