  • Intro:

    Distilled by Heaven Hill, Larceny Barrel Proof C921 is a barrel proof bottling of the brands flagship wheated bourbon mashbill product. Containing a blend of 6 to 8 year wheated bourbons, this offering has consistently appeared to improve since its launch in 2020. Let's see how C921 fares as the final batch of 2021 to release.

  • Nose:

    Sweet at first, caramel candies, cream and nougat. A faint touch of waffle batter before brown butter, a touch of pepper and a faint zip of clove set in.

  • Taste:

    Moderate mouthfeel, rich caramel and vanilla bean. There's a touch of heat, but it's unsurprising given the proof sitting north of 60%. Praline, a syrupy cherry note, gingerbread and honey. Easily the most interesting profile of 2021 for Larceny's barrel proof release.

  • Finish:

    Long finish. This seems to be where Larceny shines brightest. Honey sweetness meets brown sugar, toffee, wafer cookie, a touch of clove and a long tobacco finish. Oak seems somewhat absent, but the sweet profile carries nicely without the additional tannin.

  • Overall:

    Quite different than A and B releases of earlier this year, C921 leaves a bit of tannin on the table in favor of a softer, fuller mouthfeel and a longer, dessert party finish.

  • Score:

    7
