Larceny Bourbon is on a serious winning streak and this one could be the next top-dram.

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 grown 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 include Evan Williams, Elijah Craig, and their namesake Heaven Hill, and many dozens more.

The Barrel Proof releases of John E. Fitzgerald are super-special. So much so that they are date-coded so you know exactly when the barrel was pulled.

Note that this release of John E. Fitzgerald Larceny Barrel Proof shows "Batch C920." That code tells you that it was the third release in September of 2020. Larceny is the core product using Heaven Hill’s wheated Bourbon mash. Each release is a little different, and this one is bottled at 61.2% ABV. Its sister Bourbon released just four months prior was awarded Whisky Of The Year for 2020 by Whisky Advocate — they are THAT good.

Smartass Corner:
Back in the day, John E. Fitzgerald was a federal treasury agent assigned to the Heaven Hill Bourbon rick-houses. At night 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 "protected."

Bourbon Is a ''new barrel Spirit'': One of the legal requirements for Bourbon is that it only be aged in brand new oak charred barrels.
Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.
In 1996, more than 90,000 barrels, and one of their production buildings were destroyed in a fire. That's almost 24 million bottles-worth of premium American Whiskey. Rivers of flaming spirit were flowing in and around the distillery.
Straight Bourbon must be matured for at least 2 years. If a bottle has no age statement, it’s at least 4 years old.
Bourbon only needs to be placed in a new oak container for a few seconds to be called Bourbon. Fresh from the still and unaged Bourbon is called a White Dog. Recently, many of the larger distillers have started packaging this harsh, clear grain spirit for sale.
Bourbon must be made from a grain mixture that is at least 51% corn.
