Firm to the cut but slightly flaky in the middle, it is buttery with caramel notes and a deep savoury aroma.

Originally derived from a Gouda style cheese, we add Alpine starter cultures to create a close texture, resembling Dutch and French and Swiss cheeses.

A longer maturing cheese than Yarg, it develops over sixteen months within its handsome black wax coating.
