Ran into this Kerrygold product in a Whole Foods, and wanting something new, picked up this cheese.

I’ve had really good luck with Kerrygold’s Dubliner cheese, so wanted to give this a try. It’s very rich in flavor, with overtones of salt and cream. It lacks the nuttiness that marks Dubliner in favor of a lingering cheesy aftertaste. Others have compared it to Parmigiana-Reggiano in terms of character and smell.  In terms of cost, at about 12 dollars a pound, it’s cheaper than Dubliner on an ounce by ounce basis, and considerably cheaper than a good Parmesan. In any event, it’s a good harder cheese, well worth adding to your pantry.
