Legent Bourbon Bottling Note

What happens when you bring two masters of the art of whisk(e)y making together to collaborate? Astonishingly delicious things, apparently. Legent Bourbon is the work of Jim Beam master distiller Fred Noe and House of Suntory chief blender Shinji Fukuyo. The whiskey itself is a bourbon made with one of Fred Noe's recipes, which is aged initially in charred virgin white oak. Following this, portions are finished in California red wine casks and sherry casks, before being blended by Shinji Fukuyo. Fantastic results ensued.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Plenty of classic bourbon character is at the forefront of the nose but the cask influence adds balance and depth. Brown sugar, toasted almonds, jammy fruits, butterscotch, vanilla and orange peel combine initially, with delicate warmth and spice provided from ginger root underneath. A hint of Pinot Noir and stewed black cherry emerge as the nose develops, with milk chocolate, sandalwood and hints of leather.

Palate: An initially deliciously silky delivery leads with rich caramel, floral notes and a suggestion of marmalade before chewy rye spice initially makes things more complex among savoury notes of roasted peanuts and a slightly bitter quality from charred wood, coffee beans and unsweetened dark chocolate. Dark cherry jam and stewed plums then burst through adding vibrant fruitiness alongside the sweetness of vanilla, cake batter, muscovado sugar and a hint of cola. Warmth from freshly-ground black pepper is present in the backdrop.

Finish: Chocolate-covered cherries, black fruits, sugary cereals (Sugar Puffs, mostly) and a hint of liquorice fade ever so gradually; while the nutmeg and oak spices play about for longer.

Legent Kentucky Straight Bourbon Reviews

A nice surprise

I am a fan of Macallan scotch and I also like Beam bourbons. When I saw a bourbon finished in sherry casks I had to try it. I really enjoyed it, Very smooth with a few drops of water. It's priced really well and I recommend it. A nice departure from Knob Creek which is my fav

Right up there with other Beam bourbons.

You instantly know this has its roots in the Jim Beam family. It smells good in the glass, tastes good and pleasantly lingers before the next sip. I'm not one who's able to define the flavours and aromas but this is certainly a purchase I'm pleased with. It nicely finds its place in my cabinet next to the Beam Single Barrel, Signature Craft and the Old Grandad and the 114.

Very nice bourbon

A very nice bourbon. There is nothing exceptional and tastes like a classic bourbon. Price to value I would be very happy with a Woodford reserve

It’s very creative and complex bourbon whisky, it adds more special characters into the classical Bourbon.

Acetone heavy.

I was super excited for this collaboration. What a disappointment. This whiskey is ripe with nail polish remover aka acetone. Bitter, sour, acetone flooding your nose and mouth. I can taste it, smell it, and feel the acetone slide down my throat. Ruined any part of the drink that is supposed to be great. This is an incredible let down as at this level of acetone perception is usually a fault in the distilling. I've never perceived this strongly on a 'good' whiskey before. I even tried to let the glass open up for a few minutes, but the smell of acetone just floated across the table. I was reminded of sitting in a nail salon. I really wanted to like this bottle, but I couldn't even finish the glass. And just fyi: I'm a professional whiskey sommelier.

Hands down an amazing whiksey. A
Kentucky bourbon coupled with a
Japanese bourbon master. A bold start
with a very smooth, sweet finish, where
you case taste the wine and sherry casks.

Sweet, which I didn't mind at all. Smooth with notes of honey, cinnamon and coffee. One of my favorites in the advent calendar this year. Definitely recommend!

Very disappointing

Very clever, Beam :)

Suppose you have hundreds or thousands of unsold barrels that would otherwise become Jim Beam white label... what to do? You learn from the Japanese whisky scene, that's what! A short finish in fancy wood, no age statement (just to CYA in the future), nice bottle and BAM. You got yourself a legend, er... I mean Legent :) At least it's at a presentable abv.

Now this is Bourbon

Fantastic flavours, great blending...only problem is that it is not a bourbon to mix with cola....only way to enjoy it is straight up
