Huge thanks to Linda W. for her suggestion of iGourmet's Dutch 'Beemster XO Double Aged Gouda' - it's been aged over 3 years and is all I was looking for & more! I think reasonable at $16.99 a pound, it is caramelly & delicious, without being sharp, and has those wonderful crystals scattered through it - just an awesome cheese & head & shoulders above any other Super Aged Gouda I've tried. Thanks again, fellow chowhound - you made me very happy tonight!
Now, any suggestions out there for wine pairing???
