August 2017 Pick of the Month: Larceny

Each month, Flight Club selects a club-endorsed “Pick of the Month.”  The parameters on the Pick of the Month are (a) locally available in Wichita, Kansas (b) under $40 and (c) something believed to be a good value or limited availability at the moment.  We invite everyone (Club members or not) to break open a bottle and provide comment and feedback. 

Larceny

This month we feature a brand new bourbon to the Kansas market:  John E. Fitzgerald Larceny.   While this offering by Heaven Hill is not a new release in the U.S., only in the past couple of weeks has it become available in Kansas.
This bottle MSRP’s for about $25, a price that puts this basically on par with its wheated bourbon cousin, W.L. Weller Special Reserve.  But as a new offering, several local stores are offering deals.   One local store is offering the bottle for $19.99 if you like their Facebook post and mention the ad, plus a $10 mail in rebate.  

We encourage everyone to pick up a bottle and give us your thoughts.
