Requesting the perfect cheese blend for nacho cheese...before this Sunday!

Hi folks I hope you can help me with my quest.

I'm in need of a perfect cheese blend for a nacho cheese sauce. Through the amazing powers of modernist cuisine I have the texture down by using sodium citrate. But every time I make the recipe with the standard cheddar I feel like something is missing.

I think the perfect nacho cheese sauce flavor should be cheesy, a tiny bit sharp, tangy, have a distinctive cheesy tongue smacking sensation in your mouth and have that final "nom nom" taste.

The closest I ever came to that flavor and taste was the yummy queso at Guero's in Brooklyn (http://www.guerosbrooklyn.com/About_U...
)I would really love to replicate this delicious taste but I'm kind of lost as to where to start.

Here is where I am for cheese blend:

base cheese: mild cheddar
distinctive cheesy sensation: monterrey jack
tangy?:
nom nom:

I know I sound insane but I've spent the better part of my young life trying to find the perfect cheese blend for nacho cheese. I would really love the help from you all.

Thank you for reading!
