Beemster Extra Aged (X-O) is a rich Dutch cheese made from pasteurised cow's milk. It is an extremely old cheese, matured for no less than 26 months in Beemster's historic warehouses. The matured cheese develops deep, long-lasting flavours of butterscotch, whiskey and pecan. Its pate is deep golden with a crumbly and granular texture. Moreover, it has 20% less salt than other Dutch cheeses. Sample this cheese with French or Italian pumpernickel or rye bread as well as fruits like grapes, pears, pineapple and cherries. This extra hard cheese goes well with Dry reds, Dry whites and most dessert wines. FLAVOUR PROFILE: BUTTERSCOTCH, NUTTY. CHEESE TYPE: HARD
