    Good and inexpensive.
    And where is here, Pirate. Your profile doesn't say.

    Re: "Article" about Larceny creates my question about Old Fitzgerald

    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.

    Re: "Article" about Larceny creates my question about Old Fitzgerald

    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.

    Wow, they skipped over me twice, once going West then again headed back East.

    Re: "Article" about Larceny creates my question about Old Fitzgerald

    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.

    Re: "Article" about Larceny creates my question about Old Fitzgerald

    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.

    I see exactly where you're coming from Rod, on the taste profile. The Larceny is an entirely different animal from the Weller line. The Wellers are much more sweetish, and more rounded, with a very big finish for a wheated bourbon (particularly the OWA). Larceny is more like a MM, IMO, in it's taste profile. Softer. I do happen to dig the Larceny, though.
