John E. Fitzgerald was a man who enjoyed his whiskey, so much in fact that with his keys he (may or may not) have taken his share from barrels high up in his own warehouse. Thus the name Larceny. Larceny is a wheated bourbon that is a blend of 6 -12 year old whiskers at a reasonable 46%. Anyways after that let us move on to the whiskey...
Nose: At first whiff bits of sweet vanilla, butterscotch, and non-offensive bits of alcohol. As we let this open up: As I let this sit, caramelized banana, sweet floral notes, and honey appear. Not to bad for a NAS bottle of bourbon.
Body: Velvety smooth on the tongue. Thin yet very slow moving legs trickle down my glencairn glass.
Taste: Has a nice spiced quality with cinnamon and nutmeg especially at the beginning. It has a slight sweetness in the way of brown sugar syrup and honey. Not offensive, it has a pretty good texture with this one.
Finish:Relatively short. Warming with a little spice at the beginning then transforming back to a slight sweetness.
Overall: This is a nice NAS bottling, probably one of the better non age statement bottles at least of bourbon anyway. I like how it transforms from a slight spice to slight sweet. It seems a little conflicted but I like it. At $25.00 USD this is a good drop and a good buy like Elijah Craig 12.
