Not “just” a great Bourbon, it’s one of the top 20 spirits in the world… bar none.

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.

Some Bourbons put wheat into their mash bill as a cost-cutting measure. But Larceny does so with serious intent — loud and proud. This is a wheated Bourbon with just a touch of rye and barley. It's sweeter and smoother and perfectly crafted with notes of fresh-baked bread, butterscotch, and a finish that is both sweet and savory. And the Bourbon-loving world takes this dram seriously — it pulled down a double gold medal (unanimous decision), has been named a “best buy,” and was ranked #18 among the Top 120 Spirits in the world by the Spirit Journal. 

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.

Ratings & Reviews
Parker
Parker,
Tastes a bit like a classy Jim Beam. Fine on the rocks or after a few but isn't my preferred flavor profile.
 
Sean
Sean,
An absolutely fantastic tasting bourbon for the price!
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Great for daily drinker or even a mixer if you are into that. If you pair this with a Coke or Pepsi and a splash of grenadine it can be a VERY drinkable bourbon mixer for even those who don’t normally like the flavor of bourbon. The wheat doesn’t normally have quite the spice this has so it is a delightful drink. I can see this being at a much higher price tag later on.

Awesome
 
Karl

Nice as a mixer and nice on its own as well.
 
Jay

Decent but for the price its actually pretty good
 
David
David,
Relatively inexpensive, suitable for mixing. Not bad on the rocks.
 
Ahazi
Ahazi,
Got this as a bday gift from someone who knows I don't like bourbon. I was pleasantly surprised at the south taste and friendly palette of this bourbon. Long story short. I drank the whole bottle with a friend in one sitting.
 
Justin
Justin,
Very nice for the price. At first I thought it was cask strength but that was because the proof was printed so powerfully on the label when I'm used to hunting for the % ABV to see what kind of a kick to expect. Quite a respectable bourbon and an enjoyable drink, especially at the price point it runs at. Would be happy to have this cross my table again.
 
Eric
Eric,
Good taste considering the price, not too rough either.
 
Christian
Christian,
Sweet bread and typical bourbon after taste. Great value and pretty smooth.
 
Rod
Rod,
If you like larceny committed on your mouth and throat, then this is the bourbon for you. Harsh, non-distinct, no subtlety at all. How anyone tastes sweetness or calls this smooth is beyond me.
 
Baker
Baker,
Smooth with caramel undertones. Prefer over many of the more expensive bourbons.
 
Nick
Nick,
It's no wonder people like this bourbon and the name fits well regardless of the lore behind it. The quality for the price is a steal. Truly larceny in a glass. I don't normally think of smooth as a way to describe a smell, but the nose on Larceny is smooth and sweet with notes of caramel, butterscotch, and a hint of vanilla. The sweetness continues into the sip with the addition of honey and orange blossom and just enough spice to remind you that you're drinking whiskey. The finish adds cinnamon and oak and lasts delightfully longer than expected. Easily the best bourbon at this price point and punches above its weight. Steal a sip when you can, but buy a bottle for yourself. At this price, you'll feel like you're getting away with something.

This is a very drinkable bourbon for the price. I have sampled it both neat and in a mint julep and it worked well in both.
 
Derek
Derek,
Tastes watered down. Very weak and forgetful. No complexity or linger. Glad that i bought this bottle on sale.

Buttery Awesomeness!
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
For the price, this is incredibly hard to beat. Nice and sweet with virtually no bite. This one will be a mainstay in my bar.
 
Clara
Clara,
My daughter calls this my "sassy" whiskey! I really have enjoyed it. I will be ordering more.
 
George
George,
Wow, incredibly smooth without the bite you might expect from a 92 proof. Nice sweet taste at first with lingering carmel flavors. This will definitely stay on my list to buy again.
 
guest
guest,
Best 92 proof bourbon for the price! Amazing value
 
Francisco
Francisco,
Great value wheated bourbon. Great daily drinker. Must have bottle for any home bar.
 
David
David,
Great value, great taste. Suitable for drinking on its own, but inexpensive enough where you don't feel bad mixing it. A little burn, but still quite smooth.

Thomas

Very disappointed. The heat overpowers the sweet, and it ends up tasting hollow.

Best Buy bourbon. Not much burn very smooth.

I really enjoyed this bourbon. Has a little bite to it, but I really liked the caramel finish.

Excellent for the price.
 
Margaret

Surprisingly smooth bourbon for the price point! Makes an outstanding bees knees!
 
David
David,
A good affordable and available wheat bourbon. Smooth and sweet. My current “daily.”
 
David
David,
A really solid bourbon. An affordable staple to have on-hand at all times. Notably smooth for the price-point and proof. I enjoy practically everything from Heaven Hill, and this is no exception.
 
Chris
Chris,
Go to wheated bourbon, rich and sweet with some oak spice.
 
Matthew
Matthew,
Enjoyable to drink. Sweet and floral with just a little spice. One of my favorite wheateds.
 
Kimberly
Kimberly,
It was a little spicy for my taste when I tried in on the rocks, but with a mixer it was good. The spiciness went well with Dr. Pepper. Everyone seemed to like it.
 
Pete
Pete,
This one came highly recommended from several WhiskeyTubers, so I gave it a shot. The guy at checkout AND the guy in line behind me both said, "Great choice!" It took considerable restraint not to crack it open in the car on the drive home! Wonderfully smooth bourbon with almost no burn for 92 proof. Subtly sweet nose, and the finish actually gets stronger before it fades into oak, almond, fresh cut hay and just a slight bite of tannin. At a super affordable $25 (in my area) this one will stay stocked in my bar. If you haven't tried it, TRY IT.
 
Pierre
Pierre,
Bulleit use to be my go to bourbon. That has now been replaced by Larceny. Great bourbon for sipping straight or with a drop of water. And strong enough to gave any cocktail (Old Fashioned) that extra kick.
 
Connor
Connor,
This is some of my favorite stuff. It starts soft and leaves your throat warm for a long time. It's easy to drink. Its flavor is soft and sweet like vanilla, which makes sense considering this site lists its primary flavor as caramel. It's not even expensive!
 
Iola
Iola,
This one put hairs on my chest and I am a woman. The men enjoyed the taste, so I will keep it in my home bar.
 
Alex
Alex,
For the price, you really can’t beat this. It’s a great bottle to bring to an event or share with your friends. It goes down smooth and at the price, I don’t even mind making cocktails with it.
 
Kimberly
Kimberly,
It smelled great but it was way too spicy for me.
 
Richard
Richard,
Smooth with a rich finish, one of my favorites, always stocked.
 
George
George,
Best example of a delicious wheater for a great price. Has a little more burn that affects the finish than I would prefer but still better than I would expect for this price. This ends up finding itself in my regular rotation.
 
Allen
Allen,
For he price a very good neat or on the rocks bourbon
 
Dan
Dan,
I gave a bottle to a friend on a recommendation from a fellow bourbon drinker, and of course we poured a couple glasses to try it. It was very smooth and we poured a few more before the night was over! Recommended and good bang for the buck.
 
David
David,
This is an excellent bourbon for the money. Smooth and easy to drink. I prefer to drink it neat but have had it on the rocks as well as in an Old Fashioned and enjoyed it all. I would highly recommend this bourbon in anyone's bar for an everyday choice.
 
Luke
Luke,
Nose: lots of corn, light banana bread Taste:sweet with vanilla, some oak through the middle, finishes with lingering light spices, moderately hot
 
Nycole
Nycole,
Very smooth and easy to drink! I prefer my on the rocks and neat is just as good!
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
Great
 
Omar
Omar,
I could smell the orange notes the second I popped out the cork. My girlfriend has never been a "straight bourbom" girl but even she loved it and it was hard for us to make the bottle last. Even comes with a couple of cocktail recipes on the tab. Great buy!
 
Derek
Derek,
Very nice, especially for the price!
 
Dyann
Dyann,
I was expecting much more from a Burbon named Larceny.. but this bite is indicative of the name. Go for it if thats what your longing for. My go to is neat, this bit of Larceny needs some taming - slow sips and a great story and you just may get the buy in.

Very smooth and easy to drink. Nice flavor and really nice price! Flavor spiral is pretty accurate in my opinion but I’m still not able to identify everything on my own and sometimes not at all but this one is close. Everybody is different though... 🥃

Good value; a bourbon best enjoyed in a cocktail such as an old fashioned

Smooth sipping bourbon
 
Jamie
Jamie,
Sweet, caramel, honey, wheat, yummy! Does have a bit of burn, but the price point kicks it up a star, at least.
 
Todd
Todd,
Flat. Bland. Slightly spicy hit at front of tongue, and nothing rolled after that. Disappointing.
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Bought on a whim from another members suggestion comparing it to another bourbon. This is very good bourbon and not just because of the price! The bready caramel taste comes through strong but so delicious. Will keep on hand at all times. When price is a factor its 10/10.
 
Gary
Gary,
For being so inexpensive this is a very good bourbon. Being a wheat product, it has a nice, smooth finish. No, it’s not pappy Vanwinkle. But it’s also $25 a bottle!
 
Sam
Sam,
Excellent sipping bourbon. Hard to beat for the price
 
Tom
Tom,
Pretty good in flavor, does have a “young whiskey” burn, had it neat, on the rocks, and shaken with iced lemonade and muddled strawberry
 
Robyn
Robyn,
It was a gift for my husband. I like to buy him different bourbons since we are both fans. He liked it on the rocks with no additions.
 
Jennifer
Jennifer,
This little number is great when theres a small whiskey budget or I cannot locate my blade and bow
 
Shane
Shane,
I loved the strong sweet smell of caramel as soon as i opened the bottle. The taste is strong and the burn was expected. Makes a sour have a slightly sweeter taste. Great to have in my liquor cabinet.
 
David
David,
Best Bourbon for the price, very easy to drink.
 
Scott
Scott,
Not enough balance on this one. Mostly harsh. An ice cube opens it up a bit. Price may be right but I won't be using this as a sipper - will probably be used for cocktails.
 
David
David,
Delicious, great bang for your buck
 
Lawrence
Lawrence,
Excellent sippin bourbon!
 
Danton
Danton,
Akin to Russell’s Reserve, would recommend to have in stock. Little high on he proof but tasty.
 
Charles
Charles,
I'm a fan of the Weller wheated bourbons (12 Year, Old Antique, etc.), so the local shop owner recommended Larceny to me. It simply did not resonate with me.
 
Justin
Justin,
A little stronger and bityier than I like but overall not to bad. Would drink again.
 
Bianca
Bianca,
So freaking delicious!
 
Chad
Chad,
Great Bourbon with a great story!!! Larceny will always have a place in my heart!!
 
Kevin
Kevin,
My new "GO TO" Bourbon!! Loved it. Of course anything by Heaven Hills is hard not to love!!
 
Matthew
Matthew,
So far this is my favorite Bourbon. With its high alcohol content and smooth taste, John E. Fitzgerald Larceny is amazing. It tastes better than the Breckenridge Reserve which costs considerably more!
 
Alanna
Alanna,
loved it.
 
Grayson
Grayson,
I am not a Bourbon drinker but I do absolutely adore this one. Very smooth, with a decent flavor depth with hints of wood, and the taste of everything else that is normally present in a Bourbon is there without being an overpowering element
 
chris

The best bargain bourbon on the market
 
Gregory
Gregory,
Smooth flavor.great taste. I really like this bourbon.

Smooth and sweet
 
Kevin
Kevin,
This should be your next "go to" bottle!!
 
Wesley
Wesley,
I’ve had great bottles of this and not so great bottles. It’s a little nuttier than Maker’s Mark. (You know the other available wheated bourbon). I’d put this one between Maker’s 46 and Maker’s Mark. Most places have it priced between the two as well. Very much like bread in a bottle.
 
Jeremy
Jeremy,
Very good bourbon for the price. Sweet and fairly smooth.

Excellent neat or on the rocks. Very smooth, but potent bourbon One of my favorites.

Robert

Very drinkable. Smotth, velvety and long taste.
 
Ed
Ed,
I save 10 star ratings for Pappy and Blanton’s but at this price it deserves it. Buy it and you will find yourself coming back time and time again. Best <$50 Bourbon I’ve had. This is my daily bourbon.
 
David
David,
A very drinkable bourbon, and you cannot beat the price point for value. I'm not a manhattan fan, but my in-laws swear that this is fantastic bourbon for a Manhattan. I like it straight. It's simple and to the point.
 
Gary
Gary,
Excellent bourbon at affordable price. Highly recommend.

Bourbon the way I like it! Spicey at first with a nice smooth caramel, butterscotch finish. Great sipping Bourbon. And the price, please, you can't go wrong!

Wonderful spirit
 
George
George,
Wonderfully smooth. Caramel, vanilla, tobacco... Beautiful finish
 
Jonathan
Jonathan,
For my tastes this is one very good bourbon and I love the story about Fitzgerald, kind of gives this one some nostalgic character. For the price, I think it’s a leader and I give it 9 out of 10 simply because Blanton’s is my overall preference but it’s comparable in terms of flavor characteristics. Price is excellent.
 
Timothy
Timothy,
Honestly, I'm new to spirits. I've always been a beer drinker. I love this stuff. I haven't been drinking long enough to tell you why. It just suits my palette. I enjoy Basil Hayden and Blantons ad well, but for the money ($21) you can't beat Larceny.
 
Donald
Donald,
Excellent bourbon smooth and aromatic highly recommended
 
Steven
Steven,
Spicy and fairly rye forward (this coming from a wheated bourbon guy) but exceptionally smooth. The pepper hits first and then the sweetness but all with none of the burn you might expect from a $25 bourbon. I’m impressed!
 
Ray
Ray,
Awesome! Sweet, mellow caramel and vanilla is what I taste, smells good too- tastes great by itself as well as mixed
 
Kerry
Kerry,
Best cheaper bottle. Everyday drinker. Has a unique taste with hints of banana bread.
