Scandic Priest Cheese XO
This is a Västerbotten substitute for the US market. Västerbotten is the traditional Swedish celebration cheese, which contains sodium nitrate and is banned from the USA. The Scandic Priest Cheese XO is free of this nitrate and is therefore allowed to enter the USA market.

To many Swedes, Västerbotten is considered the "emperor of cheeses," either because of its heft or its full flavor. Produced in Northern Sweden, Vasterbotten is aged for over 11 months and Scandic Priest cheese is a tad younger and thus is dry, reminiscent of a young Parmigiano Reggiano or an aged Cheddar. Its flavor is rich and full-bodied with a tangy, bittersweet bite. Serve it in the Swedish tradition with some ginger snaps and a cup of hot glogg.
