OVERALL

Larceny Barrel Proof has had an interesting ride in 2021. It started the year with the brand’s lowest proof release to date, and suffered because of it. With a loss of its concentrated flavors, Batch A121 tasted like more of the same offering little new or exciting. Batch B521 was anything but, offering a barrage of new flavors for the brand, yet it just wasn’t enough to elevate it to greater heights.

The final release of 2021 will make a lot of fans of the brand happy. Staying close to its wheelhouse, but not afraid to let in a few surprise flavors, Batch C921 finally gets it right. Excellent intensity packed with complementary flavors that are a mix of new and old, gives the sip some much needed spirit. It finally did what previous batches didn’t. It wowed me. From my initial sip to my last, every time it was the melding of its flavors in conjunction with heat and intensity made this the best batch of Larceny Barrel Proof yet. I remained patient, knowing the brand had the capacity to release a great batch, and my fortitude paid off. Now, does Larceny Barrel Proof have its own determination to take it a step further in 2022?

Description

A superior, barrel-proof, wheated Bourbon that is a super value.

Heaven Hill Distillers is unique. They are one of the oldest and largest Bourbon distillers in the world, they have the second largest standing inventory of aging Bourbon, and they have grow to become the seventh largest supplier of Spirits in the US. BUT… they are still family owned. In fact, they are the only family-owned production house left in Kentucky. God bless the Shapira family! The Spirit brands owned and controlled by Heaven Hill includes Evan WilliamsElijah Craig, and their namesake Heaven Hill, and many dozens more.

Larceny Bourbon uses the popular Heaven Hill wheated mash bill — 68% corn, 20% wheat, and 12% malted barley — that it shares with its parent dram Old Fitzgerald. It’s a mix of #3 char casks aged from six to eight years. We also know that the Spirit goes into the casks at 125 proof (62.5% ABV), so you’d expect Larceny Barrel Proof to deliver a number close to that. And sure enough, the current release is delivered at 122.6 proof. We love it, but recommend a splash and five minutes rest after the pour.

This delicious dram is a great value and will be released three times per year — January, May, and September. The bottles are coded to identify each one. The first release is coded A120. The “A” identifies the first batch of the year. The first numeral “1” indicates the month (January), and the “20” indicates the year (2020).
