Bourbon born from a collab of legends
 
“Legent” might seem like a typo, but that’s how Chaucer, for instance, wrote “legends”. Also, if you spell it differently, everyone notices. And legends are what we’re dealing with here: Fred Noe, Jim Beam’s seventh-generation Master Distiller, and Shinji Fukuyo, Suntory’s fifth Chief Blender, joined forces and created something spectacular, a Bourbon so masterful we’ll start using the word legend with a “t” once again.
 
The demiurgic duo sat and deliberated about the recipe for years, and finally decided for this wonderful expression. It’s Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey partially finished in wine and Sherry casks. The result is wild and iconic – just like its creators. You should enjoy it neat or on the rocks, but be sure Legend will be the main protagonist if you put it in a cocktail.

What does Legent Bourbon taste like?

The Flavor Spiral™ shows the most common flavors that you'll taste in Legent Bourbon and gives you a chance to have a taste of it before actually tasting it.

We invented Flavor Spiral™ here at Flaviar to get all your senses involved in tasting drinks and, frankly, because we think that classic tasting notes are boring.

Bourbons are very high in vanilla, as American White Oak is naturally high in vanillins.

Ratings & Reviews
Matthew
Matthew,
Appearance: Color is copper, decent legs... Nose: Fragrant, with the fruit of the Wine and Sherry mingling with the grain of the Bourbon. Background of baking spices and dry tannins from the Wines. As it sits, the fruit fades fairly quickly... Palate: Less sweet/fruity than the nose lets on, but the Wines influence is still present under the grain notes. Baking spices start showing in the midpalate. Fairly complex profile... Mouthfeel: Average... Finish: Baking spice lingers well after the finish... Overall: Unique but yet familiar profile, with the wine adding complexity while still being a classic Beam Bourbon.

Jeffrey,
I didn't really enjoy this one. Harsh, maybe I should have let it air out.

Really good bourbon. Full of flavor and goes down easy. Not to mention the cost is great as well.
 
Gregory
Gregory,
Maybe I expected more because of the people involved in the recipe.
 
Michael
Michael,
Notes of Caramel, Vanilla, spice and a bit of fruit. A very smooth mouthfeel with a hint of smoke and fire in the aftertaste. The best whiskey I have had for under $50 no contest.
 
Elvis
Elvis,
I don't remember the specific notes when drinking this, but I know that I wasn't a big fan. I'm also not a fan of Japanese whiskeys, and it was interesting to learn that one of the distillers came from Santory. I will say, this is probably a good marriage of Japan meets American Whiskey.

Smooth and spicy, with a great oak and sherry finish. Goes down easy with a nice long finish.

Abe,
This s is a personal favorite summer style sipper - light, juicy, bursts of sherry sweetness, refreshing. Not quite a contemplative sipper so much as something you can keep in your glass when you're amongst friends... and, before you know it, your glass is empty.
 
Michael
Michael,
Super smooth. Very easy to drink. What I’d describe as a light whiskey.
 
Tom
Tom,
Very unique bourbon! Never have had anything quite like it.
 
Gabriel
Gabriel,
Really liked the smooth, smoky sweetness. Easy going, a dram for any ocation. Vanilla and spice, but not too sweet. You can get the flavours of bourbon and the balance of a blend well executed and mellow. Will get another bottle.

Bit rough, thought it was going to special but not sure it has anything going for it that I care about.

Not too shabby! Lots of vanilla on the nose, toasted peanut on the palate and just a little mesquite vapor at the finish.

I don’t get any smoke, but it’s spicy and a good citrus flavor. Would get again.
 
Robert
Robert,
Taste on this one is a bit off. Definitely not your typical bourbon taste, it’s okay in the beginning but the aftertaste is not flattering. I gave it six because it became better one I opened it and let it sit for a few weeks, wouldn’t buy it again.
 
Reinier
Reinier,
Beautiful bottle. I absolutely love the story behind this instant classic. As far as the bourbon itself, it is not my favorite, but I did enjoy it.

Added a touch of water to open it up and it is delicious.
 
Abel
Abel,
I love the spice. I love the aromatic typical bourbon nose. At first. After that, you really hit the sherry flavors on the pallet. I also registered a bit or orange zest, vanilla, almonds, in addition to the smoky earthy ends.
 
Jeff
Jeff,
Excellent- balanced. Slightly different profile but smooth and really drinkable. Pick up a bottle unique and well worth the price.
 
Barry
Barry,
First when I opened the bottle I smelled a candied fruit smell.
