American Oak Species have a greater aromatic potential than European Oak due to the high content of cis/trans isomers of methalOctalactone. American White Oak is easily identified by the low quanity of extractable polyphenols, the high methal-octalactone extractable polyphenols, the presence of two isomers of 3-oxo-retro-ionol.**
