Larceny Very Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey
Larceny, a small batch wheated bourbon hailing from the Old Fitzgerald distillery and a part of the Heaven Hill family of spirits, derives its name from tales of John E. Fitzgerald’s practice of using his personal keys to access the bourbon warehouses, “liberating” barrels of his preferred bourbon to share with loved ones. Comprising approximately 100 barrels, each aged for 6 to 10 years, this bourbon offers a distinctive character.
On the nose, one can discern aromas of simple syrup, baked pastries, citrus, ripe bananas, and a subtle note of corn sweetness. Upon tasting, the palate presents flavors of buttery caramel, butterscotch, vanilla, and honey. The finish, lingering and satisfying, exhibits hints of corn sweetness and a gentle touch of oak.
