We don't get the Larceny out here though I did see a lone bottle of Old Fitz a while back. It was the 12 year I think. Ended up buying all of my stock through TPS.
Peggy: Look Al, the rubes think I'm sexy!
Al: So would I if I had whiskey for breakfast.
No Larceny in WA state but I do see Fitz

Larceny is not in IN yet and no 1849 or VSOF, but plenty of OF Prime and BIB. Picked up a family-sized Larceny last time I was in KY and still trying to wrap my taste buds around it. At one moment I get EW and at another I get Bernheim Wheat. It's like HH and wheat just can't fully integrate.

The July 23, 2012 press release from Heaven Hill says "for 2012 Larceny will be available...in California, Colorado, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Missouri, North Carolina, New York, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia".
Wow, they skipped over me twice, once going West then again headed back East.
We have old fitz upstate. It is about as green as you can buy. I like that sort of whiskey though. I was not crazy about larceny when I bought the first bottle, but it has really opened up now. Wheated bourbon needs air. If I pull a sample of ours out of the barrel, it takes a while before I can nose it and tell how it is doing. Mst of the time it needs to sit out partially covered overnight.
They have Old Fitz in SC. I haven't tasted it in its current iteration in quite some time. I don't get all of the hoopla surrounding Larceny. It's so out of profile of what a wheater should be IMO. I get mint and grass in the profile of Larceny. Those flavors are significantly amplified if I have a pour of Larceny soon after having a pour of OWA. I gifted my partially opened bottle of Larceny away.
