Distilled by Heaven Hill, Larceny Barrel Proof C922 is a barrel-proof bottling of the brand's flagship wheated bourbon mashbill product. This is the third and final release of the 2022 season and will be the third of three bottlings under the Larceny Barrel Proof line releasing to stores across the country. This batch is the highest-proof release of the year, as well.
Vibrant and bright on the nose - cinnamon, brown sugar, a touch of ethanol, caramel covered pecans. Sweet, intense, plenty going on.
Rich on the palate - a touch of heat. Honey, caramel, sweet sweet oak, a pleasant baking spice character and a zip of cinnamon.
Long finish, the heat is present here once more, although very much diminished. Bold and sweet, loads of cream, sweet caramel, confectioners sugar, a faint touch of cherry.
Overall, this release brings the heat, in many good ways. Fans of that Kentucky Hug will want to complete their 2022 collections, but if a touch of ethanol isn't your jam, regular Larceny will do the trick this release. Much like Booker's, this release brings bold, savory and inviting flavors, but like a good romp in the kitchen, you'll need to be mindful of the heat.
