Bourbon Famous tries out Legent, an East meets West collaboration between Fred Noe and Shinji Fukuyo. Do these contrasting styles marry to create something great? Fred Noe is the master distiller at Jim Beam, and Shinji Fukuyo is the chief blender for Suntory whisky.
Bourbon Famous tries Breckenridge Distiller's High Proof. Typically, higher proof is a good thing. How does it hold up in this instance? We've liked other offerings from Breckenridge, so hopefully this one will also meet our standards. This one clocks in at 105 proof, and is "how the distillers" taste the bourbon. We shall see if that's a good thing.
Today is a special review for Bourbon Famous, and everyone watching, as we had a friend who was willing to loan us his bottle of George T. Stagg for our review. George T. Stagg is one of the four offerings of Buffalo Trace's Antique collection (Eagle rare 17yr, Thomas Handy, and William Larue Weller). They are very sought after bottles, and command ridiculous prices on the secondary market (5-10X retail). How does the 2018 George T. Stagg actually taste? (Also, never pay secondary prices, it hurts us all)
