This Vintage Gouda is aged 5 years and there are not so many Goudas of that age, with a similar miracle of flavor.
The color of this gourmet cheese is deep amber and burnt orange with a texture similar to Parmigiano-Reggiano, very firm and flaky. Its rich flavor and subtle sweetness is intense and complex. It is an excellent substitute for grating cheeses as it caramelizes beautifully; it is even a better cheese with a nice rich red wine or a cool glass of beer.
We cut the very old cheese in 1 pound wedges.
