Brännvinsost is an aged Swedish cow's milk cheese fortified with an 80 proof Swedish liquor called Brännvin, also known as Aquavit. Made by Wernersson Ost in the style of a Tilsit, this cheese matures for at least 10 months before being injected with hard liquor.
As strong as Brännvinsost may sound, it is surprisingly mild. Under the layer of midnight black wax, there is a sunny yellow cheese, firm with tiny curd holes and a texture reminiscent of aged Cheddar. Upon first taste, the cheese is mellow and buttery. Follow through to the finish for a touch of sharpness from the Aquavit. Only a small quantity of liquor is injected, but it makes a huge difference in the cheese's flavor.
