Unlike other goudas, this cheese is never matured in cooler temperatures, allowing it to develop a fuller flavor. Made in the Netherlands with milk from Holstein Friesians it is then aged for two years. Because this cheese is made year-round, the flavor, as a result of the varying milk, will change slightly with the seasons.
The paste color is deep amber with well-distributed protein crystals. The aroma shows roasted notes of hazelnut and caramel. It is always creamy with slightly salty, nutty notes and a very deep, complex, long finish.
