Default Hickory nut type?

Is anyone out there conversant in hickory nuts?

I found these in the woods, both on the ground and whizzing by my head. I'm pretty sure that they are Carya. They seem to most resemble Carya ovalis, red hickory. The skin is thin and they smell wonderful, very peppery and spicy.
