L'Amuse Gouda

Over 15% Off + Free Bag w/Kilo purchase

Quick Overview:

Sweet caramel layered with toasted nuttiness; Firm-but-creamy paste spotted with casein crunch; The reigning queen of aged Gouda, to which all others simply bow.

Quick Facts

Country of Origin: Holland
Milk Type/Treatment: Pasteurized Cow
Rennet Type: Traditional

The Flavor Experience

Exhibiting all of the crunch, bite and saltiness you expect from aged Gouda, but with a slightly creamier mouthfeel.  Roasted hazelnuts and caramel abound, with a lingering, complex finish.

The Story

Developed and matured by Betty Koster and her husband Martin.  Together, they are the unofficial ambassadors for real Dutch cheese.  Betty opts to mature this cheese at a higher temperature than normal, which helps keeps the moisture locked in the cheese, resulting in an unusually creamy paste for an aged Gouda. 

Usage Tips

Think bold reds like Bordeaux or Côtes du Rhône, or sweeter dessert options like Port.  Stunning with dark, malty beers like chocolate stouts or porter.  Either way, make sure you pair it with Black Lava Cashews.

    This is one of the best goudas I have ever tasted! We regularly bought it for special occasions when we were living in Philadelphia. Very glad it can be shipped since we moved south!

  2. Simply Amazing

    Love this cheese. My wife and I both are completely addicted to it. It's by far the best we've ever tasted. Such a unique flavor and just melts in your mouth. We will certainly be ordering this again!

    The way this cheese goes with the black lava nuts is ridiculous the two flavors absolutely complement each other

    This is the best Gouda cheese you can buy. Hints of toffee, butterscotch, awesome!

    For people who are not traditional gouda lovers the aged gouda is a totally different beast. Definitely worth a taste, a devour.

  6. Melts in your mouth!

    I went to Di Bruno's yesterday at the Italian Market location for the first time and the one employee offered us a sample of this. I LOVE the little bit of crunchy texture. It really does melt in your mouth like a butterscotch candy. Not too sweet though. I highly recommend this Gouda. I must go back for more!
