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.
