LARCENY 92 Proof 46%
Bourbon, United States / Kentucky, 1L, Ref: 17055
Produced by the Heaven Hill distillery, Larceny pays tribute to John E. Fitzgerald, the bonded treasury agent who, at the begin of the 1980s, inspected most of the warehouses in Kentucky. The story goes that his tasting skills were so good that casks that caught his eye were stamped “Fitzgerald” and recorded with a very large angel’s share. Hedonism at the hands of larceny!

- Appearance : topaz with amber hues.
- Nose : creamy, classic. A very strong fragrance of peanuts and maize. This is followed by curry, cardamom and a hint of particularly interesting, invigorating varnish. Lingers with coffee and mocha.
- Palate : very different from the nose. It gains in herbaceous, cereal freshness. The humidity is a distinct contrast to the warmth of the nose. Fruit make an appearance (apricot, almond). They are certainly dry, but add to the generally soothing sensation.
- Overall : very different from the palate, remarkably spicy (cloves, nutmeg). Vanilla from the new wood stands out. This gives it great creaminess. The retronasal olfaction is characterised by notes of apricot and spices. The empty glass reveals cereal notes.
