Gouda gets deeper and darker in color as it ages. This Gouda has a deeper caramel color than our other Goudas, with the same crunchy, crystalline, and meltingly smooth quality, this 6-year aged cow milk Gouda bursts with flavor. The hint of butterscotch at the finish is a signature of this Dutch treat. Gouda pairs well with Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a several white wine varietals. If you let a stick of Gouda melt in your hot coffee it will become caramel in your mouth. Please note: Because our cheeses are cut by hand exact weights may vary slightly.
