With four batches now under its belt, Larceny Barrel Proof has performed admirably. Yet, I still can’t help but feel the brand still hasn’t lived up to its full potential. The first batch of 2021 is more of the same and might even be a slight notch down from what felt like a universally praised Batch C920 in 2020. Notably, Batch A121 clocks in at only 114.8 proof which is quite a step down from the three 2020 Larceny Barrel Proof batches. 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. I do believe the Larceny brand has it in it to do just that. In the meantime, I’ll enjoy Batch A121, as it’s a solid barrel proof wheater, but I feel the best is still to come.
