Hailing from the central mountains of Switzerland, Sbrinz is this country's oldest cheese. There's some speculation that the Italians modeled their hard cheeses grana padano and parmigiano-reggiano after Sbrinz. Yes, it is that old! It's made from whole cow's milk and aged for 18 months. It has a yellowish-gold interior with a golden-brown rind. The mellow flavor is fruity, nutty, spicy and toffee-like, intensifying as the cheese ages.
