Description

Legent bourbon is a cooperation between the Jim Beam distillery and Suntory. Expertly distilled by seventh-generation master distiller Fred Noe and then refined by world-renowned chief Suntory blender Shinji Fukuyo, Legent is a marriage of East and West.

 It’s a collaboration between two whiskey legends – Fred Noe & Shinji Fukuyo – and two unique styles of whiskey making. It starts with a historic bourbon recipe from Fred Noe’s family. Every drop is crafted with high-quality grains and calcium-rich, iron-free, limestone water and is aged for at least four years in newly charred white oak barrels, then finished in Sherry and Red Wine barrels. Finally these three barrel finishes are blended with Japanese skill and flair to create an outstanding Bourbon.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes:

Nose: Almonds, macaroons, brown sugar, mango, and subtle spice. 

 

Palate:  It is warm and spicy with tropical fruit flavours, honey, vanilla and caramel. It’s bright on the tongue with a darker lingering finish. The addition of water brings out cornbread and floral flavours.  

 

Finish: Long and fruity with lingering spices in the background. Very complex and well-balanced.
