A superior, barrel-proof, wheated Bourbon that is a super value.

Heaven Hill Distillers is unique. They are one of the oldest and largest Bourbon distillers in the world, they have the second largest standing inventory of aging Bourbon, and they have grow to become the seventh largest supplier of Spirits in the US. BUT… they are still family owned. In fact, they are the only family-owned production house left in Kentucky. God bless the Shapira family! The Spirit brands owned and controlled by Heaven Hill includes Evan Williams, Elijah Craig, and their namesake Heaven Hill, and many dozens more. 

Larceny Bourbon uses the popular Heaven Hill wheated mash bill — 68% corn, 20% wheat, and 12% malted barley — that it shares with its parent dram Old Fitzgerald. It’s a mix of #3 char casks aged from six to eight years. We also know that the Spirit goes into the casks at 125 proof (62.5% ABV), so you’d expect Larceny Barrel Proof to deliver a number close to that. And sure enough, the current release is delivered at 123.2 proof. We love it, but recommend a splash and five minutes rest after the pour.

This delicious dram is a great value and will be released three times per year — January, May, and September. The bottles are coded to identify each one. The first release is coded A120. The "A" identifies the first batch of the year. The first numeral "1" indicates the month (January), and the "20" indicates the year (2020).

Smartass corner:
Back in the day, John E. Fitzgerald was a federal treasury agent assigned to guard and certify the Heaven Hill Bourbon rick-houses. During the evening hours he would slip in to "sample" the barrels. They named the brand Ol’ Fitzgerald after him — Larceny Bourbon is a tribute to the Whiskey he stole while "protecting" it.

Timothy,
A good barrel proof worth about 50-60$ and comparable in quality to Rare Breed and JD barrel proof.
Javier
Javier,
JD Barrel Proof blows this out of the water with 130+ proof and older juice and with a SRP of $65-70.
Ryan
Ryan,
Is this the A120 or the B520? Does anyone know?
 
Dan
Dan,
I love this bourbon. But $120 is too much for me.
 
Javier
Javier,
I don't get why this product which MSRP is about $50-$60 is $99 here. Elijah Craig Barrel Proof is no more than $70 and is more available and a better product to begin with. I've been looking for these bottles but I refuse to pay more than $70 for it.
