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.
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.
Distiller: Heaven Hill
Age: Not age stated, but believed to be a blend of barrels ranging from 6-12 years old.

Gentlemen devoted to the finest.
