Whisky Reviews for Legent Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey

  1. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    It's a typical bourbon. The marketing bohei around the two famous blenders (including the Japanese) cannot reflect the whiskey. It is not bad for a bourbon - but there is nothing more then.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Solvents, corn, burnt wood, vanilla, the alcohol stings slightly, becoming more acidic, peanut
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sweet, mouthwash solution, a little tingling on the tip of the tongue, alcohol well integrated and strong enough overall, light peanut again
    • Finish
      82 82
      Medium-length finish, some bitterness, mouthwash, otherwise rather unspectacular

  2. Bam scored this whisky 83 points Expert Junior

    Quite coherent and round, but also not very spectacular. For me no typical wine or sherry flavors like those found in Scotch, rather an intensification of the fruity bourbon flavors.
    • Nose
      Corn sweetness and a strong cherry note. Green apple. Vanilla and caramel. Some solvent. Some oak flavor. Very round and soft nose, no trace of alcohol
    • Taste
      strong start, oily mouthfeel. The nose repeats itself, cherries, green apple, vanilla, light oak flavor.
    • Finish
      short. Still the cherries and apples, vanilla. Some milk chocolate.

    Idiosyncratic combination where I liked the smell the best. One sample is definitely enough, so I prefer clean bourbon.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Fruity and sweet, with cherries and red berries. The initial adhesive note is only very subtle.
    • Taste
      83 83
      Bourbon and barrel can be tasted clearly from each other, with the red wine barrel dominating here. Reminds me of rosé wine.
    • Finish
      84 84
      The adhesive note is hidden here. The whiskey remains present for a long time with a dry mouthfeel and a taste of cherries.

  5. katarn_rb scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: Full and intense with oak, caramel and vanilla. Fruity Sherryoten follow.

    Taste: Warming with raisins and dried dates. Sweet and fruity with hints of dark chocolate and spices.

    Finish: Long and warm with soft oak notes.
