Heaven Hill’s most iconic wheater will get its first barrel proof launch for 2022 with the arrival of Larceny A122, an uncommon installment within the long-running collection.
The burly nostril kicks issues off with a country assault, a bit heavy for Larceny’s typical strategy and extra in step with a rye-situated bourbon than one constructed from wheat. Toasted grains, some saddle leather-based, and a punch of creosote do an incredible job of tempering the fruit within the whiskey, although you possibly can select some dried, darkish fruits nicely beneath notes of darkish chocolate and baking spices.
It’s an enigmatic starting, however the palate is the place issues roar to life, with bolder berry notes, a sweeter, bittersweet chocolate character (basic Larceny), and many caramel within the combine. The bourbon’s peppery components are well-integrated right into a racy palate that finally finds its option to a end of blackberry and extra spice — with only a trace of saline creeping into the combo, however possibly that’s simply me.
Water’s a should with this one, actually serving to to mood the uncooked warmth and develop the whiskey’s extra nuanced flavors.
