Spring has certainly sprung in the whiskey world, with new releases pushing up through the soil quicker than I can remove winter’s gook.
There once was one big release period in the fall, but it seems nobody’s holding back their bourbon-soaked bounty for that anymore.
You definitely get that hint of apple on the nose, and then once you sink your teeth in — er, I mean, sip — it’s like Grandma’s apple pie.
The flavors are very impressive for a 5-year-old whiskey, and the notes I just mentioned are all heightened in that first sip, along with hints of butterscotch and caramel corn.
Larceny is a great representation of Heaven Hill’s wheated bourbons, and its aroma is truly intoxicating with notes of fig and bright vanilla and caramel.
This is one that reveals new flavors with each sip. On the nose you get wonderful notes of coffee, cocoa and orange peel, most likely from the stout finish.
