Part Emmental-style swiss and part washed-rind stinker, this is an exciting cheese is one of our new favorite additions to the igourmet.com line. In a style by itself, the Austrian classic Moosbacher is the only cheese that has a washed rind and large eyes (holes) in the paste, owing to a dual-ripening process. Named after one of the Styrian farmers who supply the milk for the cheese, this cheese is one for the bold! These generous-sized, pasteurized cows' milk wheels are wrapped in linen made just for this purpose, and the flavor has been described as a cross between Dutch Gouda and Alpine cheeses such as Appenzeller or Gruyere. Semi-firm and smooth, it tastes sweet and fruity with a creamy, melting mouthfeel, a bit of spice and pungency, and notes of toasted hazelnuts. While it makes a fine table cheese, it is also a superb melter.
Made from pasteurized cow's milk.
