Legent™ is a new, distinctive whiskey experience, as well as a new understanding of how learning from others can broaden horizons and push you out of your comfort zone.
Legent™ starts with a historic bourbon recipe from Fred Noe's family. Every drop is crafted with high-quality grains and calcium-rich, iron-free, limestone water and is aged for at least four years in newly charred white oak barrels.
It's here that Legent begins to pick up unique flavors from the different casks. Layers of spice and fruity undertones are imparted from the sherry casks, while the red-wine casks lend Legent a light tartness and help punch up the dried fruit flavors.
Shinji Fukuyo takes these distinct, secondary-finished bourbons and meticulously blends them with Kentucky straight bourbon. Blending allows Shinji to balance the different flavors to consistently hit the flavor profile he and Fred originally envisioned.
Together, Fred & Shinji Have Created a Bourbon Like No Other. Legent transcends the broader whiskey category. It's a perfectly balanced and rounded bourbon that's also complex and layered. On your palate, it starts like a bourbon – rich, warm and oaky. Then, like a Japanese whisky, it features complex layers and a bright, smooth, unexpectedly long finish.
