No, not Romano as in the alternative to Parmesan – Roomano from the Netherlands.  This is similar to, or a type of, aged Gouda, depending on who you ask.  According to wikipedia, Gouda has more than48% butterfat, while Roomano has less than 48%.  As you know, I love aged Gouda.  I had Roomano a few weeks ago and it was heavenly.  Super intense caramel and butterscotch flavors with an undertone of nuttiness.  A hard cheese, it can be enjoyed alone or would be fantastic on a gourmet turkey sandwich with honey mustard.

Roomano is apparently hard to find – try a specialty cheese shop or one of the on-line cheese purveyors.  Yummmm.
