Old Amsterdam is an aged Gouda cheese that is aged until the Dutch cheese makers are ready to release it, when they know the cheese had the perfect  flavor and texture. The Westland cheese makers know what they're doing as the cheese won numerous awards over the years, in 2012 Sabor del Ano in Spain, and a golden award for 'Best Dutch Cheese' at the Nantwich Cheese Show.

Old Amsterdam has a pale yellowish interior, dotted with occasional small eyes and small crystalline nuggets of amino acids. The Dutch Gouda is rich and sweet in flavor with caramel and toasty notes and a long, balanced finish. The cheese is rather moist and easy to slice or cube.

We like Old Amsterdam; a gourmet cheese with a consistent flavor, always appreciated and lovely with a good glass of red wine or port. When you use the cheese for a cheese sauce, you don't need much to add flavor to your dish. An absolute wonderful cheese.

We hand-cut and wrap this gourmet cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Ingredients:pasteurized milk, salt, cheese cultures, rennet, annato color.
I got this cheese just for the amazing reviews. I know nothing much about it. I served it straight without pairing it. No one in my family that I served it to liked it too include myself. I was really hoping to love it.

WOW..! I'm so filled with exuberance to discover 'Old Amsterdam Cheese' has a website..! On 1 of many travels through Amsterdam years ago, I fell down the Rabbit Hole, and discovered Old Amsterdam Cheese..! As I recall, this is the oldest Cheese house in the Nederlands ..founded and continuously operated for over 400 years..! I always bought several bricks of various flavored cheeses and carried them to the US as gifts ..for this Ye Old Amsterdam Cheese was such a treasure, it must be shared..! On my every subsequent visit to family n friends, the 1st words from them were, '..Where's my Old Amsterdam..?'!! Truly as exquisite and noble as Old Europe..

Living on retirement income, this is the one luxury item I allow myself. To all the praises written by others, I say Ditto.
