LARCENY VERY SPECIAL SMALL BATCH
Larceny Very Special Small Batch Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey is a well-known bourbon produced by the Heaven Hill Distillery in Kentucky, USA. Here are some key details about Larceny Bourbon:
- Mash Bill: Larceny Bourbon is made using a mash bill (grain recipe) that consists of 68% corn, 20% wheat, and 12% malted barley. The high wheat content sets it apart from other bourbons that typically have a higher rye content.
- Aging Process: Larceny Bourbon is aged in new, charred oak barrels, as required by law for bourbon production. The aging process contributes to the development of flavors and imparts rich characteristics to the whiskey.
- Small Batch: Larceny Bourbon is crafted using a small batch approach, which means that a limited number of barrels are selected and blended together to ensure consistency and quality in each bottling.
- Flavor Profile: Larceny Bourbon is known for its smooth and approachable flavor profile. It offers notes of caramel, honey, vanilla, and toasted oak, with a hint of spice from the wheat. The bourbon is generally regarded as medium-bodied with a balanced sweetness.
- Bottling Proof: Larceny Bourbon is typically bottled at 92 proof (46% alcohol by volume), providing a robust yet mellow drinking experience.
Larceny Bourbon has gained popularity among whiskey enthusiasts for its accessibility, well-rounded flavor, and reasonable price point. It can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in various bourbon-based cocktails.
A blend of six to twelve year old bourbon, this whiskey pays homage to Pappy Van Winkle’s original bourbon recipe.
