Heaven Hill Distillery recently unveiled the third and final 2022 release in their cask-strength, wheated bourbon Larceny Barrel Proof series. Larceny Barrel Proof C922 is bottled at 126.6 proof, the highest-ABV release of the 2022 Larceny Barrel Proof releases.
Each release in this annual series is aged between six and eight years and bottled straight from the barrel. The proof and flavors vary by release, but the mash bill remains consistent: 68% corn, 20% wheat and 12% malted barley.
The “C” in the name represents the third in a three-part A, B, C release series. The “9” stands for the month released, September, and the “22” end represents the year.
GSN’s Remarks: Sweet and nutty right out the gate with a nose like you’ve just walked into a candied nut shoppe. Flavors of praline, cinnamon toast and pleasant woodiness are wrapped in a high proof expression that begs for some water to put out the fire. The finish is fairly long with a dry and crisp ending. No big surprises here, but with such a high ABV, you’d do well to temper this down to truly enjoy it. GSN Rating: A-
