From Perennial
Taste the new #5 release
Common Ritual #5 Double Barrel Straight Bourbon Whiskey....$84.99
It blends a Journeyman's and a Nobleton's barrel at barrel proof
Ritual: #5 Discovering Your Art 
Age: A blend of 5 and 8+ year whiskey
ABV: 60.9%Total Bottles made: 427
Grains: Corn, Maize, Wheat, Rye, Barley

Tasting Notes:
It needs roughly 10-15 minutes to open up before I truly recommend consuming. No matter what stage of evolution the pour is in taffy, brown sugar and sarsaparilla. But once it initially opens it is so reminiscent of Barbados and Australian style rum, give it a little more time and those rum profiles take a back seat. Enter your friend's apples and mid age range calvados come say hi and after a little longer of a wait it seems like you showed up to a carnival and decided to snack on cotton candy and bubble gum.  I simply describe it as spicy, dry and complex.
Blender's Story: Inspired by Scottish independent bottlers and blenders, I set out to create a unique whiskey that honors two exceptional distilleries: Journeyman in Michigan and Nobletons in Missouri.  -Steve Nease, Minister of Blending

Distilled and aged at Journeyman Distillery, Three Oaks, Michigan

Distilled and Bottled by our friends at Nobleton’s Distilling House

Tasting Notes:
On the nose, rich peanut butter, sweet butterscotch, and brown sugar lead to a palate of earthy tobacco, juicy cherries, baking spices, subtle leather, vanilla, and caramel, culminating in a long, warm finish with a rich, medium body.

Blender's Story:
We chose Journeyman Distillery to commemorate the friendships that helped us get started. When Drew was starting 18th Street Distilling, Journeyman mentored him. When we embarked on our whiskey venture, Drew paid it forward by guiding us.
This release celebrates that chain of camaraderie. We're honored to work with Journeyman, known for their certified organic and kosher spirits.
