Old Fitzgerald Larceny Wheat Bourbon: A Detailed Tasting Experience for the Discerning British Palate

On the shelves of The General Wine Company sits a wheated bourbon with a story as smooth as its flavour: Old Fitzgerald Larceny. This expression from Heaven Hill Distillery inherits the legacy of the Old Fitzgerald brand, known for its wheated mash bill that delivers a distinct character.

A Wheated Wonder: Unveiling the Mash Bill

Unlike most bourbons that rely on rye for their spicy kick, Larceny uses wheat as its secondary grain. This swap introduces a softer, sweeter, and more approachable profile compared to its rye-forward counterparts. The exact mash bill percentages remain a closely guarded secret, but the dominance of wheat shines through in every sip.

Uncorking the Aroma: A Bakery Basket of Delights

As you pour Larceny into your glass, the initial aroma is reminiscent of a freshly baked loaf – a warm, inviting sweetness that promises a delightful experience. Hints of toffee and butterscotch weave themselves into the bouquet, creating a complex and enticing first impression.

Savouring the Flavour: A Symphony of Sweetness

The first sip of Larceny caresses the palate with a wave of buttery caramel. Honeyed notes emerge alongside the caramel, building a rich and luxurious mouthfeel. Hints of vanilla bean and a touch of spice peek through the sweetness, adding depth and intrigue. Unlike some wheated bourbons that can veer towards cloying, Larceny maintains a delightful balance, keeping the sweetness inviting without becoming overwhelming.

The Finish: A Lingering Warmth

The finish of Larceny is where the magic truly unfolds. It's long, lingering, and leaves a gentle warmth on the palate. The sweetness gracefully subsides, revealing subtle notes of toasted oak and baking spice. This satisfying conclusion ties the entire tasting experience together in a neat bow.

Serving Suggestions: Tailoring Larceny to Your Preference

Larceny's versatility allows you to explore it in a variety of ways. Here are some serving suggestions to help you discover your perfect Larceny moment:

  • Neat: This is the purist's approach, allowing you to appreciate the full spectrum of flavours Larceny has to offer. Use a rocks glass or a tulip glass to capture the aroma and savour the nuances of the spirit.
  • On the Rocks:  For a slightly chilled and diluted experience, add a large ice cube to your glass. The ice will slowly melt, tempering the alcohol content and opening up the flavours further.
  • Classic Cocktails: Larceny's wheated character makes it a fantastic base for classic bourbon cocktails. Try it in an Old Fashioned, where its sweetness complements the citrus and sugar notes beautifully.  A Whiskey Sour made with Larceny offers a delightful balance between sweet and tart.

Food Pairings: Bringing Out the Best in Larceny

Larceny's flavour profile makes it a great companion to a variety of foods. Here are some suggested pairings to elevate your culinary experience:

  • Desserts: The inherent sweetness of Larceny makes it a perfect digestif after a rich dessert. Pair it with pecan pie, crème brûlée, or a slice of chocolate cake for a truly decadent conclusion to your meal.
  • Savoury Dishes: The wheated bourbon can also complement savoury dishes surprisingly well. Try it alongside grilled meats, smoked cheeses, or creamy pasta dishes. The sweetness of Larceny cuts through the richness of the food, creating a harmonious balance on the palate.

In Conclusion: A Wheated Delight for Every Occasion

Old Fitzgerald Larceny Wheat Bourbon is a testament to the versatility and deliciousness of wheated bourbons. Its smooth, sweet, and approachable profile makes it a fantastic choice for both seasoned bourbon drinkers and those new to the world of American whiskey.
