DetailsBig flavor, big impact. Medium and medium plus American oak impart a spectrum of intense flavors including vanilla, toasted coconut, toffee, caramel, and coffee. French medium toast lends a hint of spice and a deep mouth feel, giving the wine a solid tannin back bone to round out the flavor. This package is designed for use in a six gallon batch and the whole pack must be used to acheive the intended results.

5.0 / 5.08 ReviewsNice oak blendI love the fact that I can purchase a blend of woods and toast levels in order to create a wider flavor profile without having to purchase multiple packages of oak. I really like this blend. Depending on how much oak you want in your wine this may be a single-use portion. The package said that the oak would be depleted after about six weeks worth of use. A lot of flavor comes out in the first week and then tapirs off.March 24, 2013great tasteLeaves a wonderful oak flavor in your wine. It is an awesome alternate to oak barrelsMarch 29, 2013Great flavorMy favorite oak, they take longer to give off their tannins than oak chips. The flavor is excellent. This oak is great for big reds that benefit from a heavy, caramelized oak flavor.April 5, 2013Bourbon Barrel Old Ale oak flavorI like the oaky taste of these oak cubes. I first encountered them when I make the Bourbon Barrel Old ale kit. I've been experimenting with different cubes and these have a very good flavor and aroma. _x000D__x000D_First I steam them to disinfect them._x000D__x000D_Next I soak them in Bourbon for a month._x000D__x000D_Then I pour it all into my beer._x000D__x000D_Wait a year, and you have some great beer.August 2, 2013Good oak aroma and flavorThis is a good pack of oak to use with beer.

The beer had a really nice oak flavor and aroma.August 16, 2013Good flavorsI made a wine using this pack and prefer it to a wine I made using an oak spiral. The variety was greater and the wine more complex. I also used them in a Scottish ale that came out great._x000D_October 6, 2013Different tasting than teh French oakFor wine making I've been experimenting with different types of oaks. I like this oak taste and it stands up to some barrel aged wine I've tasted.December 14, 2013
