These extra aged wheels of Finger Lakes Gold are musky and malted, with a hefty dose of minerality and flecks of crystalline amino acid clusters. Not nearly as sweet as many goat goudas, Finger Lakes Gold Reserve is as nuanced as it is sophisticated. The texture is dry at first, but quickly gives way to a rewarding richness that'll leave you going back for more. If you look closely at the rind, you'll see some lavender spots, which are actually native yeasts! They don't contribute any flavor, but they sure are fun!
