Larceny Barrel Proof has had an interesting ride in 2021. It started the year with the brand’s lowest proof release to date, and suffered because of it. With a loss of its concentrated flavors, Batch A121 tasted like more of the same offering little new or exciting. Batch B521 was anything but, offering a barrage of new flavors for the brand, yet it just wasn't enough to elevate it to greater heights.

The final release of 2021 will make a lot of fans of the brand happy. Staying close to its wheelhouse, but not afraid to let in a few surprise flavors, Batch C921 finally gets it right. Excellent intensity packed with complementary flavors that are a mix of new and old, gives the sip some much needed spirit. It finally did what previous batches didn’t. It wowed me. From my initial sip to my last, every time it was the melding of its flavors in conjunction with heat and intensity made this the best batch of Larceny Barrel Proof yet. I remained patient, knowing the brand had the capacity to release a great batch, and my fortitude paid off. Now, does Larceny Barrel Proof have its own determination to take it a step further in 2022?
