Larceny Bourbon gets its name from John E. Fitzgerald who was a treasury agent who used his keys to Kentucky bourbon warehouses to steal premium barrels of bourbon and bottle them under his own brand Old Fitzgerald. Over the years the Old Fitz brand changed hands many hands and was once owned by Julian “Pappy” Van Winkle but now is owned by Heaven Hill, the maker of Larceny Bourbon.
Larceny Was Hand Selected By The Master Distillers To Have A Taste Profile Of A Six-Year-Old Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey. Made With Wheat As The Secondary Grain, Instead Of The Traditional Rye, Resulting In A Smoother Tasting Bourbon.
Soft with an array of summer fruits: orange, apricot, and peach combined with a sweet sugarcane note. Light cinnamon also comes into play. The scents are inviting but not rich in delivery.
First up we have some molasses, caramel, and vanilla. Mix in some cherries, spiced cider, citrus, sugared malt, Sugar Daddy’s, and a hint of spiced lemon cake wrapped in a nicely oaked package.
A delicate cinnamon spice pops at first, with baking spices and nutmeg in tow. Honey sweetness contrasts the spice notes. The mouthfeel is on the thinner side, but not so much it detracts from the experience. Despite the presence of some spice notes, the sip is quite tame, approachable, and enjoyable overall.
Medium finish that’s a bit like a malted milk ball (minus the chocolate) crossed with a sugar daddy and some oak.
Larceny Bourbon is a decent sipping bourbon. It’s full of flavor and has a bit of an oaky kick to it that pairs well with the sweetness. It’s a robust whiskey that pulls off the wheated softness without becoming weak and spineless.
