  • Intro:

    Distilled by Heaven Hill, Larceny Barrel Proof B522 is a barrel proof bottling of the brands flagship wheated bourbon mashbill product. This is the second release of the 2022 season, and will be the second of three bottlings under the Larceny Barrel Proof line releasing to stores across the country.

  • Nose:

    Intense maple, honey, caramelized sugar and a light touch of oak. Sweet, inviting, there's no shortage of character on the nose.

  • Taste:

    Big and rich, it's viscous on the palate. The ABV delivers a chewy, satisfying mouthfeel that's packed full of caramel, honey, brown sugar, a touch of chocolate covered cherries, light baking spice and a faint touch of cinnamon.

  • Finish:

    Long finish, this is where this batch shines. Caramel, brown sugar, a bit of coffee, clove, sweet oak, a dash of cinnamon and rich cherries. Satisfying, it's complex and hangs for some time.

  • Overall:

    Overall, this is easily the best Larceny Barrel Proof I've had in some time, perhaps ever. A great blend of sweetness, baking spice, oak and a pleasant dash of cinnamon that adds depth but never goes too far.
