Reypenaer cheese, one of the great Dutch cheeses, is carefully matured for about 1 year. This Dutch gourmet cheese is aged less than the Reypenaer VSOP, although it is already very old as cheeses go. It does not have the sharper tangy taste of the Reypenaer VSOP, instead it has a soft and creamy flavor that lingers on the palate. Simply delicious!

At the International Nantwich Cheese Show (UK) in 2009, in competition with a large number of international entries, judged by an independent jury, Reypenaer Cheese has won a prize again. The Reypenaer cheese was presented to be the Supreme Champion of the International Cheese Show 2009. After previous victories in 2007 and 2005 the Reypenaer cheese became the 'Best Dutch Cheese' again.

This cheese is ideal for serving on a cheese board for that special occasion, at the table, and for cutting off small slices and decadently enjoying with your favorite beverage. Reypenaer sliced is a perfect accompaniment in building that very special gourmet sandwich. Indeed Reypenaer more than fulfills its reputation as an excellent all purpose gourmet cheese.

We cut and wrap this cheese in wedges of approximately 1 pound and 8 ounces.

Reviews
As a family, we do love cheese so when my husband bought some of this we couldn't wait to try it. It is delicious! It has a lovely subtle nutty flavour, slightly gritty (similar texture to parmesan) and just melts on the tongue. A definite firm favourite with everyone here!


Oh my. Wow. On the way back through Amsterdam airport I was lucky enough to see a Dutch lady giving samples of the one and two year Reypenaer. Not being a cheesehead, didn't know what to expect. Bought the one year cheese before my sample had left my tongue. Unbelievable. And I need a treat, heading back to Saudi Arabia to work!!! Found the perfect accompaniment to my cigar pleasure..


I bought both this and the 2 year and love them both. Not as sharp as the VSOP which is my favorite. If you are new to aged cheese, try this first, you won't be disapointed. If you find you like the flavor closer to the rind the best, then get the VSOP next time.
