Select vats of Deer Creek's younger cheddar, The Fawn, are chosen for further aging to allow for the development of the intense, bold, yet balanced flavor characteristics of The Stag. This complex cheddar tastes like the cheddar of the founder's youth: buttered popcorn on the nose, with a bright lemon curd acidity that evolves into rich toffee and cured meat flavor characteristics.  At 17 months old, The Stag features gloriously crunchy protein crystals that provide that burst of fruitiness while maintaining its flaky, creamy texture.   A traditional bandage-wrapped 22 lb. daisy wheel cheddar, The Stag is a true Wisconsin Original.. Chosen as one of the “101 Best Cheeses of the Year” by Culture Magazine.
