New Bourbon Rumor: Larceny Barrel Proof

Wheater fans, start rejoicing!  A label for Larceny Barrel Proof just passed through the TTB today (see the picture above, taken directly from the TTB's website) making a release sometime in 2018 seem likely.  Keep in mind that just because a distiller submits a label for TTB approval, there is no guarantee that the whiskey will get released anytime soon.  But TTB approval is one of the initial steps any new release must take, so I would certainly expect to hear more about this as we head into summer.

While barrel proof bourbons are becoming more common, wheated barrel proof bourbons are still fairly limited.  Besides Maker's Mark Cask Strength, there are very few continuous-release high proof wheaters out there that are accessible to most people.

I will update this article as any new information becomes available.

Daily Drinkers: Russell’s Reserve Single Barrel, Springbank 10 Year

A former craft beer enthusiast, Andrew fell in love with whiskey after tasting a pour of Laphroaig 10 year and being amazed that such a flavor could exist within a liquid. With a college background in biochemistry and a passion for history, Andrew quickly grew to love the science of whiskey making, the history of different distilleries, and the exploration of flavors within a dram. To Andrew, whiskey is more than just a drink; it is a fascinating mix of art and science – an intricate beauty to be pondered and appreciated. Besides this, Andrew has found that a nice bottle of whiskey has an amazing ability to bring people together and unite people from all different backgrounds together as friends.

While Andrew can be found drinking any style of whiskey from any region around the world, he has a particular affinity for spice-laden bourbons and coastal scotches. Besides drinking whiskey, Andrew also enjoys weight lifting, road biking, and cooking.

  1. Larceny isn’t one of my favorites. But it’s certainly drinkable. I sure give the barrel proof a try if and when it hits the market… Thanks for sharing, Andrew!
