Larceny Bourbon (1L) Bottling Note

The famous bourbon brand Old Fitzgerald was named for John E. Fitzgerald, who according to a family biography of Pappy Van Winkle may have been a rather more colourful character than we imagine!

Fitzgerald, it seems, was a bonded treasury agent, one of the only people to carry keys to the storage warehouses. Apparently he also had a taste for the very finest bourbons and didn't mind helping himself! It was this infamous character with the fine palate who was immortalised by the brand back in the 1880s.

Larceny is a smooth, small batch, sipping bourbon that uses wheat as the secondary grain rather than the more conventional choice of rye. Yummers.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Brioche dipped in fruity coffee, cedar, a kick of aromatic coriander.

Palate: Buttered corn, molasses, malt loaf, slowly build Christmas spices.

Finish: Peppery at first, though soon enough the fruity coffee notes return and give it a sweet profile.

John E. Fitzgerald Larceny Kentucky Straight Bourbon (1L) Reviews

Well done.

As a police captain and second generation police officer, the name caught my eye. My wife and I did the bourbon trail last year after the Derby and loved Kentucky. I thought I would try this. Very smooth with a great taste and finish.

Bold taste. No burn. Great value. BEAUTY

As a guy who LOVES bourbon but being from Canada my selection is limited.
So when I got the call from my liquor store that this was brought in as a limited edition launch I wanted to try it. I had heard about it from endorsements by Stugotz on the Lebetard show
To me bourbon is a very subjective liquor. But this is god damn good.
It has the boldness of some premium bourbons ( bookers short barrel reserve) without the after burn. It’s an easy sip with a big cube. Bold taste no burn. Very flavourful. Kudos this will become a go to for me.

Actually 4 1/2.

A tad overpriced, but it's silky smooth taste over ice makes you forget the price. Not easy to find. Tell your local saloon keeper you want some.

A better wheater than Maker's Mark!

I've liked Maker's Mark ever since I tried it - been drinking a 1.75L bottle of it, still have a bit. Well, Larceny is another wheated bourbon and at 46% it has more age and complexity and does not have solventy notes that I get in MM. It's a great all-around sipping bourbon, great value in the US. It's not harsh or even difficult (like some well-liked bourbons can be, i.e. bonded Old Granddad) but it's not "smooth" in the sense of being bland (like Crown). I would say it's velvety, full-bodied, woody, with plenty of bite and interest and complexity yet without youthful solventy harshness or ethanol burn.

Average wheated bourbon

This is a wheated bourbon. While it goes down easy it lacks any real exceptional flavors that make it stand out. Overall at its price point there are many better wheated options available.

A gem

If you can find it, but it! Great nose, taste and overall balance. Out plays some of the bigger name bourbons.

This is a steal (No pun intended)

This Bourbon is a steal at about 20.00 dollars a bottle. Very smooth. Has a great nose and sipping is excellent. Straight up with a splash of water is all it needs to really shine.

Nice!

Not a Bourbon guy but an Irish fan! Tried the Larceny as it's a very reasonable buy here in the states. It's a sweeter more viscous bourbon. If you have a sweet tooth this Louisville gem is for you!

Pity it's overpriced in Europe

That's the only problem about it, really. Excellent for sipping and thinking.

Excellent Sipping Bourbon

In brick-and-mortar stores this usually sells between $35-$50. It's an excellent sipping bourbon--smooth with a slightly oaky bouquet. Goes exceptionally well with a splash of ginger ale and other light mixes.
