[NAFEX] Unusual Flavored Acorn

     I'm not as serious about acorns as I'd like to be (I've never been 
able to leach them properly) but I still try them on occasion. Today I 
found a unique acorn, in my experience. Although it was a medium 
astringency acorn it had a very strong vanilla-ish flavor to it that 
stayed in my mouth slightly longer than the tannic acid. Has anyone else 
experienced unusual tasting acorns like this before?

     I'll try several other acorns from this tree, if I can to confirm 
that it is tree-wide. Too bad about the astringency. It would be 
interesting to see if this vanilla-ish flavor leaches out with the 
tannic acid.
