Happy Friday, folks! Here’s The Nightcap to help you roll on into the weekend armed with a plethora of booze news. Always handy if you’re looking to impress down the pub/on a hot date/out in a bar*…

Welcome to the weekend, team! Step away from the workload and pick up a dram. You deserve it. Friday evening is here! (Apologies as always if you’re a non-nine-to-fiver and are indeed working at the weekend… join the vibe when you can.)

It’s been a short week here at MoM Towers thanks to the summer bank holiday Monday. But that hasn’t stopped us bringing you all manner of news over on the blog this week.

On Tuesday we unveiled our latest competition of much excitement – win a VIP trip to Speyside and discover The BenRiach Distillery! Then on Wednesday we got hold of Pernod Ricard’s annual report and crunched the numbers to see how the likes of Jameson, The Glenlivet and Chivas Regal performed over the last year.

Yesterday we had a blog double whammy: Annie talked us through all things aquavit in her beginner’s guide, before we shed a little bit more light onto Diageo’s Special Releases 2018 line-up. Not long until the full reveal: check back on 12 September for details of all 10 bottlings in full.

October is drawing to an end, which can only mean one thing where single malt lovers are concerned… The latest edition of The Balvenie’s five-part DCS Compendium series! Chapter 3 has indeed arrived, and it contains the oldest whisky the distillery has ever released.

We knew that the 25-bottle Compendium was going to be something special when it first launched in 2015, and so far it has certainly delivered. Spanning five themes over five years, the series set out to celebrate the work of legendary malt master David Stewart MBE, who this year is celebrating his 55th year with the distillery (did he start on the 5th day of the 5th month? Let’s pretend he did).

Following on from ‘Distillery Style’ in Chapter 1 and ‘The Influence of Oak’ in Chapter 2; each bottling in ‘Secrets of the Stock Model’ demonstrates Stewart’s skill in controlling the numerous factors that influence maturing Scotch whisky – a tough gig, we can all agree. Additionally, each single cask expression that makes up Chapter 3 “represents a year relevant to the evolution of The Balvenie”. So like a history lesson, but better.
