Old Amsterdam is an aged gouda, matured until the Dutch cheesemakers feel ready to release it. They're so in-tune with the wheels of cheese that they can tell when each wheel has reached the ideal flavor and texture.

Old Amsterdam is a hard cheese with an orange interior, dotted with occasional small eyes and crystals of amino acids, creating a delicious fine crunch. This classic Dutch Gouda is rich and sweet with caramel and toasty notes for a long, balanced finish.

Just wonderful on its own, or with a glass of red wine or port. Aged-gouda lovers will find all they crave in Old Amsterdam. Those who've never tried aged gouda have something special in-store! This will be a new favorite.

We hand-cut and wrap this gourmet cheese in wedges of 8 ounces and 1 pound or you can purchase half a wheel of Old Amsterdam gouda cheese, approx. weight 11 pounds.


Ingredients:pasteurized milk, salt, cheese cultures, rennet, annatto (color).
Reviews

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.
