I don't think KerryGold has an after-taste. It tastes richer, with a higher fat content, than Land O Lakes.
One butter that has a "tang" to it which I like even more, is the Trader Joe's "Cultured" butter made in Brittany.

Regular US grocers are getting butters with higher fat content now, called "European" grass-fed milk butters, brands like Finlandia. seen that in Walmart, Sam's, local grocers. KerryGold is in Costco in four packs.

I don't see Kerrygold much in UK supermarkets but a few of the up-market ones stock Normandy butter made from unpasteurized milk.

I used to buy Vermont Creamery Cultured Butter, when I still ate dairy, which is made in Vermont.

Right now I'm using Land O Lakes butter with canola oil. The nearby outlet store has it for $3 for a large tub and it's easy for my husband and kids to use on toast, since it spreads nicely. But, I'm thinking I deserve nicer butter Ok, you've convinced me to try KerryGold-going to pick some up today

Shopping Update:

My local store had several 'top shelf' butter options-the KerryGold was pretty reasonably priced but the packaging for for Vital Farms caught my eye and I ended up getting a package of that https://vitalfarms.com/our-pasture-raised-butter/

Ones that I put on my 'to try later list'-Greenfields Irish butter, which is from grass-fed cows but I don't know if they're pasture raised? Danish Creamery, Eauropean style butter that's pasture raised, and then there was a big roll of Amish Country Roll Butter that caught my eye, but after I got home I did some quick research and it's pretty much a marketing gimmick, and it's a typical, Land O' Lakes kind of butter. Crossed that one off my list!

I also got Ghee at Aldi, used it for the first time yesterday to sautee veggies and I could definitely taste it on the mushrooms, when I used Land O' Lakes butter with canola oil, there was no flavoring at all. I liked the taste and will definitely be making ghee a staple of my kitchen
