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 or you an purchase half a wheel of Old Amsterdam Gouda Cheese, approx. weight 12 pounds.
