Heaven Hill recently released the final 2022 barrel proof variants of its popular Elijah Craig and Larceny line ups.
For Elijah Craig, according to those behind it, the new Elijah Craig Barrel Proof C922 clocks in at 124.8 proof. The highest proof of the series this year, this 12-year-old bourbon is non-chill-filtered, and uncut to preserve all the natural esters and taste components from the barrel to the bottle.
The first batch from this year (A122) was 120.8 proof and the second batch (B522) was 121.0 proof.
Elijah Craig Barrel Proof C922 is available nationwide for around $70.
The final Larceny Barrel Proof Bourbon for 2022, meanwhile, is Larceny Barrel Proof C922. Bringing the heat at 126.6 proof, it is also the year’s highest proof with A122 at 124.4 proof and B522 at 123.8 proof.
Like each batch, this Larceny Barrel Proof is an uncut small batch of bourbon aged six to eight years that is then bottled straight from the barrel. This wheated bourbon has a mash bill of 68% corn, 20% wheat, and 12% malted barley.
Larceny Barrel Proof c922 is available nationwide for around $60.
“The consistency of taste across proofs exemplifies Heaven Hill’s commitment to quality and attention to detail,” said the brand in a prepared statement.
