Lankaaster Aged Gouda is a semi-hard cheese characterized by its aromatic and caramel-like flavor combined with its dense and springy texture. Having hints of nuts with sweet and creamy notes at first taste, the finish ranges from smooth to sharp. This cheese put Ontario on the international cheese map. It was considered the best cheese in the world when it received the Global Supreme Champion Award in 2013, no small honour. Although Lankaaster is typical of Goudas made on Dutch farms for centuries, it is all Ontario's own.
