Deer Creek The Night Walker is an 18-month Cheddar is ready to creep its way into your heart. The secret to its flavor is its long bath in J. Henry five-year aged Bourbon from Wisconsin. The Bourbon adds sweet notes of vanilla and cinnamon to the butterscotch and toffee flavors of the wood-box cured cheese. The result is a cheese with amazing depth of flavor.
Try it with apples, dried cherries, and chocolate. Red wine goes nicely with The Night Walker, but for a real treat, accompany the cheese with Port, Cognac, Stouts, or Porters.
