Kerrygold Kilaree Cheddar

Any experience with Kerrygold Kilaree Cheddar? I love Kerrygold products and this cheese was on sale today at Whole Foods for a steal so I figured it'd be worth a grab. Any thoughts or favorite uses?
I had it last year and I quite liked it. It is a mild cheddar, IIRC. I'm headed to WF tomorrow and hope that they still have some. What did you think of it?
ETA - I usually eat cheddar with apples or fruit cake.
I have not tried the kilaree cheddar, but I love the blarney castle and dubliner.
Also, the cheese mongrels at whole foods are always willing to cut you a sample, so you can always try before you buy. It is one of the reasons I buy most of my cheeses there (as my city lacks a standalone cheese shop).
Well, I dug into the Kilaree tonight. It's quite good. I'm no cheese connoisseur but it's a solid cheddar with sharper note than most standard cheddars but not overwhelming at all. I was afraid the block would go to waste, but it will likely be a pretty regular go to for a while to finish off the block and then perhaps I'll branch out to another Kerry gold cheese. I love love their products - not only the taste but also that they are grass fed. In his attempts to explain the difference between grass fed and grain fed dairy products, SO snapped this picture of the Kerrygold cheddar next to a Cabot cheddar - I just love that yellow hue especially the golden butter.
