Cougar Gold is a cheese made in Washington and is unique in that it is canned. Because of the canning, it lasts indefinitely if refrigerated until opened. I understand that cheese can become more flavorful with additional aging. I am trying to understand how/why cheese that was sealed in an air-tight can and refrigerated would benefit from years and years of aging.
A friend of mine insists that the longer the cheese is kept in the fridge, the more crystallized and better flavored it will be. Their website seems to back this up.
Is this accurate? How long will this last (will the flavor continue to get better, will the amino acid crystals continue to develop)?
