Old Amsterdam

Age:  18 Months
Milk:  Cow's
Pasteurised:  Yes
Region:  Amsterdam
Vegetarian:  No
From the heart of Gouda territory in the Netherlands, this is what all good Gouda should taste like. Aged for 18 months, which Gouda should be to give it time to develop that amazing flavour. It is rich, salted caramel sweet, and has a texture almost like fudge. To really add to the situation, it also has an amazing crunch which just adds to the salted caramel vibe. This is one of our classic cheeses at cheesegeek, a real champion!

Delivery is not only free, and not only at a set day of your choosing, but also comes in a climate control box (the only in the industry) that comes with a 48 hour freshness guarantee.

If that wasn't enough, we also add an insert that will talk you through the info on the cheeses, tasting notes and a scorecard to help you make the very most of your cheesegeek delivery!
