This Netherlands gouda is unlike other smoked cheeses. Naturally Smoked Dutch Gouda is not a processed cheese with an artificial smoked flavor added to the rind. Rather, it is a natural cheese with a very creamy and characteristic smoke flavor from cold smoking over real oakwood chips. No artificial ingredients, flavoring or processing are used! It is a creamy, smooth, mellow and lightly smoky cheese that slices well and melts beautifully. Ideal for melting on barbecued steaks or burgers, it also complements meats and cold cuts very well, especially when served with mustard.
