Description: England is the birthplace of true clothbound cheddars, and Montgomery is an outstanding example of this craft. This cheddar has a crumbly texture, with a nutty, earthen taste that lingers on the tongue. The Montgomery family lets their clothbound cheddars develop a thick bloom on the muslin wrapping, which develops the flavor and allows the cheese to age undisturbed.
