Old Winchester, popularly known as 'Old Smales' is a matured version of Winchester and is much dryer and harder.  It is a Gouda-style cheese with a characteristic nutty flavour.  Since Old Winchester is made using vegetarian rennet, it is commonly used as a replacement for hard Italian cheeses.  The wheels are sold at 18 months of age, when they are full flavoured with an underlying sweetness and crunchy finish.
