This is a 1/4 of a wheel (about 4lbs). Kentucky Moon is a standout. The first thing people notice is the unique sweetness, balanced by some traditional alpine notes of milky hazelnut and a good amount of acidity. A classic choice for fondue, especially when combined with another of our alpine selections, Norwood (link in name). A point of departure for comparison could be Jarlsberg, but Kentucky Moon has more of a rugged texture, often carrying a desired crystalized crunch. The holes, or “eyes” are a result of a controlled amount of CO2 gas production that adds to the springiness of texture.
