A unique collaboration between two icons of whiskey-making, Legent Bourbon is the creation of whisky legends Fred Noe and Shinji Fukuyo. Finished in a combination of wine and sherry casks, Legent is made using a historic recipe from Fred Noe’s family and is matured for at least four years in virgin white oak barrels. It is then blended by Shinji Fukuyo to create layers of spice, dried fruit and tart red berries.
Three different types of casks are used to mature Legent bourbon and each one imparts its own unique characteristics to the spirit. Virgin American oak barrels provide notes of caramel, vanilla and oak spice, while the sherry casks offer layers of raisins, baking spices and rich dried fruits, and the red wine casks create fresh, fruity undertones, as well as a light acidity.
Official Tasting Notes
Nose - Rich, traditional bourbon cues with wood notes. Complex layers of spice and mild, fruity undertones from wine & sherry casks.
Palate - Welcoming notes of dried raisins and dates. Light acidity and sweetness. A hint of bitterness form the sherry casks. Rich, warm and oaky like a bourbon with complex layers.
Finish - Oaky, smooth, and unexpectedly long.
