  • Excerpt: Although I tried this one neat, I feel Larceny Barrel Proof is more drinkable with a touch of water or an ice cube. It also makes a great mixer.

  • Excerpt: Unfortunately, I don’t taste a concentration of flavors, and again it feels like more of the same. That won't be a bad thing to most people, but the whiskey community needs a more readily available and budget-friendly wheated barrel proof counterpoint to William Larue Weller.

  • Excerpt: In all there are well structured layers of flavor with a decent amount of heat. The caramel, nut and fruit flavors will emerge more with a bit of ice.

  • Intro:

    The first entry for 2021 in Heaven Hill's Larceny Barrel Proof portfolio, Batch A121 releases with an ABV of 57.42 and features the brand's wheated mashbill.

  • Nose:

    Big, rich, cake-y. Sweet cream, honey, vanilla bean and butter cream. Hints of cinnamon, a bit of ginger, some pepper.

  • Taste:

    Sweet on the palate. Medium mouth feel. Ethanol is well behaved, not too hot. Rich oak, some honey, cocoa, toffee and praline. Cinnamon and a bit of oak balances nicely, ensure the sweet dessert notes aren't unbridled.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. Plenty of cocoa, oak, cake batter and some berry. Vanilla sweetness and that ginger note is back, along with a little cinnamon.

  • Overall:

    Another great release from Larceny helps underscore that Larceny BP is dialed in. Great to see, and greater to drink, Larceny Barrel Proof A121 defines what a casks strength wheater should be, especially for $60.
