A hickory smoked piece of cheese with subtle pops of whole and crushed cumin seeds sprinkled throughout, this gouda will be the perfect cheese for a spice lover. This cheese has been handcrafted by Wisconsin artisans using milk from their own farm, making it a farmstead cheese. Having been aged for four to six months on true Dutch pine planks, this gouda is award winning and well rounded. The cumin flavor is present and pleasant in this gouda, and the seeds feel slightly dried and very easy to eat. Hickory smoke plays a nice role in creating a light smoky flavor, and this cheese is a delightful snack. This cheese is categorized as semi-firm, meaning it will be supple and springy undertooth. Made in Wisconsin, this delicious cheese is a great representation of Marieke Penterman’s Dutch heritage and experiences. Her cheeses have won over 150 awards and counting, and we are happy to bring you this fantastic cheese in her collection of top-tier goudas.
