Truffle Oak

Truffle Oak: A species of Oak native to the Mediterranean with the binomen Quercus Ilex, with two subspecies. Also known as Holm Oak or Holly Oak, it is cultivated in Truffle Orchards, or Truffieres, as its roots proffer a superb environment for the development of Truffles. The wood of the Truffle Oak can be, though is rarely, used to build barrels for whisky maturation. Glenmorangie Truffle Oak is an example of a Truffle Oak matured whisky.
