Kris Lloyd G&C Cheddar: Review

Kris Lloyd G&C Cheddar is sold in a striking alluring black wax cone. Inside is relatively light and creamy style cheddar and so avoid the nutty complexity of the clothbound cheddars such as those from Quicke’s, Murray and Bay of Fires. It is nearer to Margaret River Club Cheddar. There is some gin infused into the cheddar itself to add a twist to the taste. If you are putting this on a platter of cheeses consider this middle of the flavour and texture profile – it was soft to cut relative to most cheddars – so make sure you have a blue cheese and a strong hard cheese like Section 28 Monforte (comte style), or an aged Gouda on the plate.

Wine Matching | Wine Pairing

Try medium bodied red wine such as Four Horsemen Barbera or de-alcoholised Plus and Minus Pinot Noir. For even more ideas see my cheese and wine pairing guide for more options.
