Larceny Review

This is a NAS wheated bourbon from Heaven Hill that is bottled at 46% ABV.

Nose: Strong wheat notes up front with a blend of bananas, apples, and very heavy maraschino cherries (almost artificial sweet cherry), and a slight isopropyl note lingering in the background.

Palate: Sweet corn with a bouquet of fruits (again heavy on cherry more in the form of cherry cough drops here), mild oak, wheat, and dried orange peel.

Finish: Lots of citrus lingering with the wheat grain.

Rating: 85/100 – I tend to be partial to wheated bourbons – especially ones on the fruit heavy side. If you prefer heavier, bourbons with more oak influence, this one probably isn’t for you.

Value for the money: These can be found for around $25-$35 and I think it makes a great buy at that price – especially for someone first getting into bourbon who wants to try a wheated expression.
