Yes I saw that scene too in Dark Knight. The name is something like _____URN and that is what I saw. I just went to see a picture of a Speyburn 10 yrs old and the label of the bottle certainly looks like the bottle in the movie. The label is big and colored kind of deep green.

Just watched Charlie Bartlett (and did a search for Charlie, using the forum search function, only turning up Charlie Wilson's War) - I couldn't quite make out the bottle Robert Downey Jr.'s character is constantly clutching at home. At one point, the label appears to say Dewar's, but then on another angle it looks like something to the effect of Callaghan's - and I have no idea what that is.

Recently watched Spider man 2 again. Maker's Mark makes its appearance about 20 mins from the end. It was on a table by the window, definetly product placement.

I watched Elizabethtown the other day and Kirsten Dunst's character wears a Makers Mark t-shirt.

OK, I know that's not technically a bottle placement. Or single malt. I really should read threads properly ;)

Speaking from my perspective, ogling Kirsten Dunst's t-shirt is the proper way to read threads.

Ha!that's the whole reason I came into this thread to see if it was Speyburn, by the time it flashed and I thought Scotch it was gone. I too only saw the "Urn"

Just finished watching spiderman 3 and in the fight beween peter paker and harry in harry's manson, parker knocks a bottle of makers mark into the fire...

It seems that Kirsten Dunst and makers mark have a deal going. Three movies pointed out so far that have her and makers mark in them.....

Coincidence.....I think not. :D

JTS Brown is not a SM, but I thought I'd add it to this thread.

I love that movie too, seen it many times. George Scott, Piper Laurie, Jackie Gleason.

On a sad note, Paul Newman is dying of cancer. They say he has maybe a month to go. Very sad.

I would say it might be the strong tea version myself :wink:

I suppose Balvennie has an cool old fashioned style bottle and would fit nicely into the film without having to spend more recreating a replica from the era....

No, it's not sad. I do it all the time. I don't know if that proves my point. Maybe I'm sad, too! I find it funny when what they pour is clearly not what was originally in the bottle.

My favorite ongoing Scotch moment (on TV) is the final scene each week of Boston Legal. They drink Scotch together on the balcony but you never see the bottle.

In earlier seasons of Boston Legal they had some Dalmore but far more frequently and cetainly in the more recent seasons they've been drinking Chivas Regal 12 or 18.

The bottle isn't revealed, but in "Charlie Wilson's War", Charlie Wilson is given what is said to be a fine, vintage bottle of Talisker.

Watching Hitman, and I'm not sure what type of SM, but he has some poured in a glass with ice. The hot blonde says, "They might kill you for that...for what you're doing to that whisky. Brutalizing it with ice! Never more than two cubes...it waters down the Scotch!"

She had me at "They!" :P

Hahaha, I remember that part! I couldn't help but laugh after she said that. I couldn't figure out what the whisky was though.

Did you notice the size of the drams that Robert DeNiro and Al Pacino were drinking? The liquid level is almost to the top of the glass! Nobody serves that much- except maybe if you are a copy which they are in the movie.

In the anime series Black Lagoon there's 'nun' asking for a bottle of Ardbeg Provinance. It looks quite funny, an animated Ardbeg bottle, too bad I somehow can't make screenshots...

It would have been incredibly timely / topical if it had been Uigeadail.

It would have been prophetic. The programs were filmed back in the summer.

We saw Quatum of Solace the latest James Bond movie. Unfortunately I am not able to identify any whisky in the movie. James Bond (Daniel Craig) was handed a dram, more like two fingers, in the beginning of the movie. I am glad to see he is drinking it neat. But no bottle in sight.

In another scene, one of the bad guys was being poured from a bottle. It looks like a single malt. The bottle is clear with square sides. What could that be?

When JB was drinking with his buddy in a bar, the bartender recited JB's recipe for his famous martini. I forgot the exact ingredients but it was ended with , "...shaken but not stirred until cold.".

NCIS television series, "Conspiracy Theory" episode, #42; it was on tonight. Tobias tells Gibbs that what Gibbs drinks is gut rot. Tobias then pulls out a flask, opens it up, says "Macallan 18, now there's a fine drink" and takes a swig.

I think the Dark Knight had a bottle of Speyburn in it. This was the chosen bottle of an actor just after he just received the news he was to be the next murder victim. Of all the whiskies in the world! :lol:

Wow such great finds that I have never noticed. I am a total movie buff, I have to start paying attention more when I am watching a movie for these product placements.

The one I do remember is in "Animal House" they throw Beluschi a bottle of Jack Daniels and downs the whole thing.

Also, in a TV program "Two and a Half Men" Charlie has a bottle of Glenmorangie Old Port Wood Finish with all his other alcohol. Can't tell the other ones' he has.

Will post more once I start paying attention.
