Before coming to any conclusions about Swiss cheese: are you buying yours at the Swiss-cheese equivalent of Grumpy's stall, or at the Swiss equivalent of Tesco? Like with British cheese, there is a world of difference.

Having said that I will confess that one Alpkäse tastes just about like another to me, even good Alpkäse from small dairies.
We went to our favourite little kaserie shop in Engelberg on Sunday, the monastery there makes it's own cheese and has a little shop which also has a viewing cheese making area. We used to often go out of way to go and get their cheeses as it is much nicer than supermarket pre packed (and still is) so saturday we bought an array of Grumpys cheeses and on Sunday we bought an array of good quality swiss cheeses from this little shop. Whilst the swiss cheese is nice, it's not a patch on Grumpys cheese
