overall

The last batch of Larceny Barrel Proof in 2020 rounds out the brand's first year of existence nicely. Its full flavored bold sip is exactly what you’d expect from a barrel proof wheated bourbon from Heaven Hill. The distillery seems to be dialing in this brand quite well, and it wouldn’t surprise me if future batches of Larceny Barrel Proof continue to excel even more as the company finetunes the barrels it picks for these batched releases. If you’re a fan of sweater wheated bourbons or just a fan of full flavored barrel proof bourbons, be sure to seek this out.
