Larceny Kentucky Straight Bourbon
Larceny // Kentucky, USA
Larceny is a brand extension of Heaven Hill's Old Fitzgerald line. According to their story, back in the day, John E. Fitzgerald used his privilege of holding the keys to Pappy Van Winkle's bonded warehouse, where the Old Fitzgerald bourbons were kept, to steal the best casks for himself. These became known as the "Fitzgerald Barrels." Larceny is a wheated bourbon made from a blend of selected barrels made in honor of this legend. It bears no-age statement and is bottled at 92 proof.

"Larceny is a very solid, classic bourbon for the money. Banana bread aromas (bananas, sugar and nuts) on the nose with more oak spice on the tongue. It's more on the sweet side of the bourbon spectrum, but still enjoyable, and doesn't finish too hot."
