Oak Species + Barrel Flavors

French oak

quercus petraea

French oak is well known for its fine grain and higher levels of oak tannin. These barrels lend a spice note to the delicate oak flavors that are typically complimented with hints of toasted almonds and mocha.

American oak

quercus alba

American oak contains higher levels of tyloses and cis-lactone. Cis-lactone is an important flavor contributor to the spirit. Vanilla, caramel, and maple syrup are a few of the typical flavors created during aging.

European oak

quercus robur

European oak contains less tannins and more vanillin compared to French oak. Regarding chemical composition, European oak is similar to French oak in ellagitannin and whiskey lactone levels.
