As mentioned Bastogne is a cross of Claro and English walnut. It shares some of it's parents traits, but in it's own unique way as a rule. Most of what I have seems to be a bit heavier and harder then Claro. Examples of AAA below.
1 - lighter tone with very nice fiddleback figure
2 - very similar to the block above
3 - very pretty piece with great color and feathering.
