Default Cabot Habanero Cheese - the pinnacle of cheesy pain

I know, not a cheesemaking post

Cabot Hot Habenero Cheddar.

Nice, semi-dry vermont cheddar. The white cheddar alone is excellent. Slightly crumbly. Dank, sharp flavor.

The habanero will kick your butt. If you have a problem with this kind of assault, please avoid this cheese. If you like the hot, this one's for you. This is HOT. You've been warned.

Being a Vermonter, I greatly appreciate Cabot cheese. I was thrilled to see it when I visited Alaska. Cabot makes a cheese called Seriously Sharp cheddar (which I believe is also Hunter's Sharp cheddar)

I can fathom building a wicked grilled cheese blending the hot habanero and seriously sharp.

I like spicy foods, but the description of that makes it seem like you'd be wasting good cheese on something that just tasted like Habanero.

Counterpoint?

Hmmm.... it's really good?

You're right, your mouth only get's to enjoy the cheddar for about 5 seconds, there's the shock of the pepper, followed by some numbing of the taste buds. I love the stuff, not everyone will.

Do a search on the forum. I'm sure someone has put habaneros in their beer.

I grew Bih Jolokia in my garden this year. They are extremely hot. I don't think I'd put any in my beer, but I would consider putting them in cheese. I need to make some cheese.

I've got half a block in the 'fridge that I'll enjoy with some black beans for lunch today. Great cheese.

hadabar - "Had anyone put habaneros in their beer yet?"

Triangle Brewing (Raleigh, NC) made one that was served at last year's annual pepper festival in the town I live in (didn't go this year, may have done so again). It was excellent - the floral/apricot flavor came through nicely with a mild burn almost as an afterthought.

Also, a search found this:

The sharpness of the cheddar is very much still there -- it's a nice blend of both.

Depending on your tolerance, you may not even find the cheese as overwhelmingly hot as passedpawn insinuates. I love the cheese, but I don't think it's absurdly hot or anything.
