I once had a BArrel proof 4R and enjoyed it, but not this one. also, id pass right over the Larceny and grab a HH white BIB first, its cheaper and better.

    im starting to be one of those guys who doesnt care for the HH house taste. didnt pick up on it at first but am starting to.

    Larceny isnt bad at all, its just that i find it too weak/bland/whatever you want to call it. unremarkable maybe best says it. but, obviously, there are more fans of sub-100 proofers than there are fans of 100+ proofers, so i am in the minority.

    drink up!

    Doug it could also be you are finding out why more than 90% of Bourbon mash bills use rye instead of wheat.

    I have always found Larceny to be a perfectly boring wheater, one that I tried a few times at the bar, enough to help me form the opinion that next to the current Old Fitz BiB it is a weak, flaccid pour. Never bought a bottle, even with the rebate, and now that the rebate is finished, there's no reason, IMO, to choose this over other, better, wheated options - including proprietary personalized wheater vattings. I also don't think it is a HH deficiency as much as a Larceny deficiency, but YMMV.

    Of course there's a school of thought that believes it's a rye deficiency.

    Found an Ezra Brooks Winston Churchill decanter from 1969, whiskey aged 160 months, 90 proof, $14.45. Tax stamp still there, but naturally I broke the cork so there's some work left to be done.

    I stopped by a new liquor store today but nothing much intrigued me so I used the opportunity to reup on OGD BIB.
