Larceny Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

I’ve officially had it with all this snow! Over 9 feet of snow within the last few weeks makes me want to move to a nice tropical island. I however suspect we have not seen the last of the snow storms. During last weeks storm I wrote a review about a bourbon, I am going to stick with that theme and will write about another bourbon during this new storm.

Larceny Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a whiskey that pays homage to John E. Fitzgerald and the Old Fitzgerald brand. I wrote about the Very Special Old Fitzgerald 12 year-old straight bourbon whiskey a couple months ago. Larceny is also produced by Heaven Hill Distilleries in Louisville, Kentucky. The brand was at one point owned by Pappy Van Winkle.

Just like the Old Fitzgerald, Larceny is also made with wheat as oppose to the traditional rye. It was Pappy Van Winkle that introduced the “Whisper of Wheat,” into the Old Fitzgerald recipe and that carried on to the Larceny brand. Larceny contains one-third wheat in its mash and that is more than any other bourbon.

Tasting Notes

Nose: oak and vanilla

Palate: it’s a nice buttery taste with notes of vanilla, caramel, and spices

Finish: slight burn and extremely smooth

I found this bourbon to be extremely tasty. It is smooth, with the right amount of kick. I saw this priced between $20-$30, and that is a great price for what I consider to be a very good bourbon. I honestly think you can’t beat the price, nor the taste. If you have not tried it and are looking for an everyday drinking bourbon then this is that bottle.

I was very surprised on how much I enjoyed this dram. It’s a must try!
