Cahill’s Irish Porter Cheese is a medium strength cheese. Irish cheddar is combined with Porter and pressed by hand to form a wheel. The cheese is then dipped in brown wax, to form a breathable rind, which protects the cheese from drying out. The appearance of this cheese is beautiful, a pale yellow cheese marbled throughout the chocolate brown porter. Our Original Irish Porter cheese is matured for 10 months and infused with rich Irish porter to create a caramel, Smokey undertone.
