About the Whiskey:
Steal a taste the same way John E. Fitzgerald once did: uncut & straight from the barrel. This is the first Wheated Bourbon to ever be named Whisky Advocate's “Whisky of the Year.”
No two Bourbon barrels age exactly the same—which is why every release of Larceny Barrel Proof has its own distinct flavor & proof point.
Color: Dark sepia
Aroma: Toasted bread, with maple and cinnamon
Taste: Rich molasses coats the tongue, with notes of fig and hazelnut
Finish: Nuanced flavor fades into lingering warmth
98 Points, Best In Class - Intl Wine & Spirits Competition 2022
"Luscious honeyed, sun-drenched apricots fill the nose and combine with plump raisins and finely spiced oak, giving a fine intensity in the mouth. This an extremely well-executed, interesting and complex Bourbon."
94 Points - Ultimate Spirits Challenge 2022
"Pours an arresting shade of deep amber with a soaring nose of maraschino cherry, vanilla frosting, juicy honeycomb, and pastry cream. Shows an intense palate with confectionary flavors joined by an assertive red pepper spice and a plum-laced finish."
95 Points & #1 TOP 20 OF 2020 - Whisky Advocate:
"Larceny Barrel Proof, our Whisky of the Year, delivers on wheated bourbon's appeal and then some. Big and powerful, but it's no lumbering heavyweight. It floats across the palate with stunning grace and subtlety, its wheated mashbill a delicate counterpoint to its formidable proof. It begins with a flurry of sweet bakery aromas: honey bun, angel food cake, and apple pie a la mode. The palate dazzles with notes of creme brulee, chocolate, drizzled caramel, honey-roasted peanuts, and lashings of baking spice, followed by a lengthy finish loaded with cinnamon, more chocolate, and robust spice. Water helps unleash layers of these flavors, but Larceny Barrel Proof is amazingly enjoyable even at full proof, no easy thing for a whiskey this big."
