Incredibly sharp Farmhouse Cheddar?

tpicking44 | Feb 5, 201710:58 AM     8

Years ago I had a plowman's lunch at a tavern in Charlottesville, VA, and it included a Farmhouse Cheddar that was absolutely delicious, but so intensely sharp that I could only eat very little bites at a time, because there was such an explosion of aromatic acids in my mouth when I ate it. It was heavenly!! Unfortunately they only had that particular cheese available for a short time (and plowman's lunches there were just never the same after that). I asked them about it, they said that they just got it from their normal supplier when they requested Farmhouse Cheddar, but they couldn't give me any information about who made it or how I could find it. I've ordered the sharpest Cheddars available online, including 12 year aged, but none of them have been even remotely close. The cheese that I'm looking for had an aromatic acid explosion almost like I'd expect from a super (super) sharp Blue, but it was definitely a Cheddar. Any ideas from anyone??
