Apple Walnut Smoked

Promontory gets its name from the Promontory Summit, the place where the first Transcontinental Railroad in the US was officially completed in 1869. The Promontory is an Irish-style cheddar cheese made with pasteurized Jersey milk. It is produced by Beehive Cheese Company in Utah, United States.

Promontory Apple Walnut Smoked: The young Promontory cheeses are cold-smoked over red apples and Utah walnut wood that gives nutty, subtle sweet and smoky flavour to the cheese. After smoking it is allowed to mature for over 8 months. Promontory Apple Walnut Smoked cheese pairs well with dark ales, straight bourbon, Scotch. Try it with Salami, on a chicken, avocado sandwich.
