    True Vacherin is illegal in the US as it's young and raw milk. Are you getting a "vacherin-type" cheese or have you had it overseas? If here I wouldn't out the vendor.

    Pasteurized vacherin-type cheese like Petit Sapin are as close as we get... American alternatives are Rush Creek Reserve & Harbison.

    Yeah, I was told it is illegal here. They import it under a different name. Not sure how, but I don't complain.

    I decided to get some aged Gouda again because it's been some time since I've had some. And I liked it. Given that this is just 0815 aged Old Amsterdam for like 13€/kg from the supermarket, it's actually pretty good -- some crystals, round flavor. Probably something like 24 months

    bump.

    First of all a big chunk of some young Comté. Marcel Petite's Harmonie. 10-13 months. Rather mild, creamy. But still very tasty. I prefer older, more intense Comtés in general, but this was very good nonetheless.

    And a pleasant surprise. Tried this Lithuanian cheese, Dziuga (18 mo). Pasteurized milk but still quite interesting and did not disappoint. It reminds me of some cheese which I can't pinpoint as of now.. maybe it shares a few similar notes with aged Gouda, if that makes sense.
