Larceny Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

How to do something different in the already saturated Bourbon world? Larceny Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey did this by using wheat as the secondary grain, instead of the traditional rye. Wheat gives a softer, rounder character and the bourbon has intriguing notes of sweet corn, fresh bread, toffee, brown sugar and vanilla, accentuated by hints of cinnamon, roasted nuts and caramel. But who committed the Larceny? See below for the story behind the brand.

Producer Name : Heaven Hill Distillery

John E. Fitzgerald was a US treasury agent who used his rickhouse keys, where the bourbon was ageing in barrels, to steal jugs of the whiskey best barrels, thus committing Larceny!

What's with the Wheat? Larceny uses a higher percentage of wheat in their mash, along with corn and malted barley, making it a one-of-a-kind wheated Bourbon

Did you know what is the difference between Bourbon and Straight Bourbon?

As defined in the US Law, Straight Bourbon has to aged for minimum of 2 years in charred new oak barrels. However, if a straight whiskey has been aged for less than four years, it is required to be labeled with an age statement describing the actual age of the spirit.

Larceny Kentucky Straight Bourbon is drawn from barrels from that are 6 years old to 12 years old. Thus, it does not require, by law to state the age on the label as it is aged for minimum longer than 4 years.

Another key law for Straight Bourbon is that the "Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey" mention is used to indicate a straight whiskey made in Kentucky from a mash of at least 51% corn grain. Other ingredients such as caramel colouring (which is allowed in Scotch) are prohibited in a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.
