Tasting Notes

Legent is the first of a kind collaboration between the two sides of the Beam Suntory production team. It begins with Kentucky Straight Bourbon distilled by Jim Beam's seventh-generation Master Distiller Fred Noe and aged for at least 4 years. The mature whiskey is finished in two types of wine cask, sherry and red wine, to develop characters and flavors not typical seen in a standard bourbon. These two whiskies are than meticulously blended with other older Kentucky Straight Bourbons by Suntory's fifth generation Chief Blender Shunji Fukuyo. The coming together of two great whisky companies, two historic traditions, and two true masters. The result marries the flavors of Kentucky with the aesthetic of Japanese. Bottled at an exhilarating 94 proof, the perfect balance of finesse and full flavor.

    The power of suggestion can be extremely influential, so when I heard about this new Beam/Suntory project, I of course had a predetermined thought on what it might taste like. A bourbon blended by a Japanese blender; like a beautiful Venn Diagram combining the flavors of bourbon with the preferences of a Japanese palate. It’s two worlds I thought would never cross but they did. And it works. On the nose, you get the big expressionistic aspects of bourbon with red cherries, candy corn, and dried plums but then there’s a sherry and marzipan note that kicks in and is reminiscent of an older scotch. The palate has a silky smooth texture with wood tannins drying out at the end. Notes of dried orchard fruits mingle with cocoa powder and orange blossom honey. There’s a soft elegance throughout the dram that captures (in my mind) what people want and look for in a good Japanese whiskey. As a huge fan of both Japanese and American whiskies, I can say this one absolutely did not disappoint.
