Legent Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey - Limited Release

When two civilizations clash, the results can be really amazing. In this case, we are talking about two of the world’s most-revered, award-winning whiskey makers. Beam Suntory proudly announces the launch of the super-premium bourbon Legent™, which is a collaboration that marries the U.S. and Japan. Whiskey enthusiasts can purchase this one of a kind bourbon from

Fred Noe, Jim Beam’s seventh-generation Master Distiller, and Shinji Fukuyo, Suntory’s fifth Chief Blender, joined forces and created a unique bourbon that takes full advantage of both master’s knowledge, skills and techniques. Amazing things can be achieved when two great cultures come together as one, sharing a unified vision to bring true innovation and best-in-class spirits to the world.

The distilling and mashbill is homegrown, true to the core of bourbon principles, while the road from barrel to bottle benefits of Shinji’s imaginative and meticulous blending techniques.

The unique Legent bourbon is aged in newly charred white oak barrels and some extra-aged in wine and sherry casks. The result is a rounded and balanced bourbon that is layered, complex, well-balanced on the palate with a bright, smooth and surprisingly long finish.

Tasting Notes

Layers of spice and fruity undertones are imparted from the sherry casks, while the red-wine casks lend Legent whiskey a light tartness and help punch up the dried fruit flavors.

It’s a perfectly balanced and rounded bourbon that's also complex and layered. On the palate it starts like a bourbon – rich, warm and oaky. Then like a Japanese whiskey, it features complex layers and a bright, smooth, unexpectedly long finish.
