Larceny B523 Cask Strength Bourbon Whiskey


750 ml, 61.9% ABV (124.4 Proof), Batch B523

Mashbill: 68% Corn, 20% Wheat, 12% Malted Barley

Similar to the strategy Heaven Hill utilizes with their Elijah Craig Barrel Proof line of multiple releases in a year, Larceny Barrel Proof will be released on an allocated basis three times per year: January, May and September. Each release will have different proofs and consist of bourbon aged six to eight years. The first character in the batch name designates which batch of the year that bottle came from, the numeral that follows represents the month of the release, and the last two digits indicate the corresponding year of the release.

Review from Breaking Bourbon: "Larceny Barrel Proof Bourbon has been exciting barrel proof bourbon fans, particularly wheated barrel proof bourbon fans, for a number of years now. While last year's Batch C922 knocked it out of the park and ultimately became our #1 Whiskey of 2022, Batch A123 started 2023 off not quite living up to the high bar its immediate predecessor set. Thankfully Batch B523 takes things in a direction that fans of the brand will really appreciate.

A rich and delicious nose kicks things off. An aroma of rich baking spices leads the way and a supporting cast of cinnamon sticks, gently toasted marshmallows, and dark chocolate add an appreciative depth. The palate veers in a completely different direction, highlighting sweet fruit notes, rich cinnamon spice, and lovely vanilla syrup. The interplay is appreciated and works incredibly well, setting up a lingering finish that carries over hints of fruit along with heavy cinnamon and light vanilla.

While Batch A123 might not have delivered to the high standards that fans have come to expect from Larceny Barrel Proof releases, Batch B523 rights the ship. If Heaven Hill can continue to dial in batches to the same level as C922 and B523, Larceny Barrel Proof Bourbon will quickly become the gold standard for wheated barrel proof bourbons. In the meantime, B523 is a bottle that’s a must to seek out and delivers a pour that will make bourbon lovers smile ear to ear."
