    Why yes I've had that!

    Larceny gives the best bang for your bourbon buck. This wheated bourbon carries a spicy warmth down the back of your tongue as it heats up on the finish. Pairing nicely with any solid medium to strong cigar chosen, Larceny is a winner. If you bought it with the $10 rebate like I did making it $10 total, you can't loose.

    I've had that. Larceny is one of the best values in bourbon, For only about 24 bucks you get a quality bourbon that is just as good as some of the more expensive Bourbons.

    I've had that... quite a few times

    Larceny is easily the best wheated bourbon in its price range. It has the more mellow quality of a Pappy's, with vanilla on the finish that begs you to keep drinking. Also one of the best bourbons to make a cocktail with, try an old fashioned or sazerac and let your mind be blown.

    I forget who it was but there was a guy on the Dojo the other night that found Larceny mis-priced at $7.99 for a 750ml bottle. He bought 3. I told him to buy the whole shelf!!

    They don't have it in your area? It's usually easy to find.

    KS has some screwed up distribution laws. Good news I live close to state line. Gomer's south is quite cool. They set aside Bourbon County Stout, Coffee & Barleywine for me ;)

    I'm also getting some Perennial Abraxas this weekend

    I had trouble finding it, had to pick it up on a trip to Maine. This comes direct from Heaven Hill:

    "Thank you for contacting Heaven Hill Distilleries and your inquiry and patronage of Larceny Bourbon. Larceny is not currently available in the states you listed; however it is available in the following states:
    California
    Colorado
    Georgia
    Illinois
    Kentucky
    Massachusetts
    Missouri
    North Carolina
    New York
    South Carolina
    Texas"

    I searched 1000corks.com, found a store on my route that stocked it, and made the detour. It was well worth my extra hour added; regret not buying more when I was there!
