I was watching The Client yesterday and I am sure the guy who kills himself in the beginning of the movie is drinking Johnnie Walker Black.

Everyone's been so enthralled with the OMC Laphroaig shown in Iron Mn but did anyone else note the other alcohol in the case? JW Blue (1 liter), JW Black, and what appears to be Jose Cuervo Gold. Of the four only the Blue was open. Conclusion: Stark likes Blue.

Has anyone seen any whisky in any of The Godfather films?

Not from memory, but I'd be happy to watch them for the 20th time to find out. My Favorite movie(s).

Just had my Ardbeg committee minutes arrive.

Seems Ardbeg Ten Years Old was in an episode of 'Spooks'.

That's right, it appeared in two episodes in the last series (the seventh).

End of episode 4 - Harry shares a drink with Connie in his office.
End of episode 6 - Harry pours himself a dram at home as he settles down to read the file on the traitor.

Love Spooks, not so fussed on Ardbeg 10, though this might be a hanging offence around here(later not the former).

Noticed a bottle of J&B in Abslutely Fabulous. Edina's mother tried to force one onto one of her ex-husbands.

Curious, in the latest Christmas Episode of the office, Michael makes a drink called "One of everything" which is supposed to contain scotch, but I couldn't make out any scotch bottles on the table, I thought I might have had a glimpse of Dewars, but later I thought it was some sort of no tequila. Wondering if anyone had the chance to see it?

I don't know if this has been mentioned yet but the Bird Cage was on the other day and they were pounding the Glenlivit 12 during the dinner scene.

In the 'New Tricks' episode 'A Face For Radio', Brian (Alun Armstrong) goes to Jack's (James Bolam) house, discovers a bottle of Talisker 10 and takes the bottle outside to drink it. Then changes his mind.

The only one I can remember is in one of my all time favorite movies...

Donald Sutherland clutching a Cragganmore 12 in "A Time To Kill".

Was watching the new show Community on NBC last night and Chevy Chase's character pulled out a bottle of scotch from his bag for some inspiration for a Spanish project. I couldn't figure out what it was, though, and it was driving me crazy. Anyone catch it?

Saw that also, but its baffling me also, but I did make out Glen... and it was in the shape of a glenlivet bottle, so perhaps the Nadurra, though I have yet to see a bottle of the naddura so still not sure. Plus Glen and a bottle shape like that could probably be at least 30 different whisky's. But a show like that probably has some sort of budget so I'm voting for some sort of glenlivet based on the shape of the bottle and the word glen.

While Not a single malt in the movie wedding crashers at the dinner scene, there is a bottle of what I believe is Johnny Walker, I believe green but as its in the background out of focus it might be blue...

Watching Infamous, the 'other' movie(and to my mind superior to the Phillip Seymore Hoffman version) about the story of Truman Capotes writing of In Cold Blood. Capote drinks J&B.

Went to see that new Bruce Willis movie, 'Surrogates' last weekend and at one point he opens up what I think was a fridge interestingly and takes out a bottle of...cue drum roll...Jameson.

Well, turns out the "Trinity Killer" in the newest series of Dexter seems to fancy Glenfiddich for a toast.

Watched an ep of Mash last night where Hawkeye and Hotlips are stuck in the middle of bombing together. Hawkeye to relieve the tension pulls out a bottle of Japanese "Scotch" as he calls it and offers some to Hotlips. She accepts and replies, 'how bad can it be'.

Definitely, Maybe. Ok, they were plowing there way through a bottle of JWR (tumblers no less). Then in a different scene, there was Glenlivet 12 and Glenfiddich 12.

In the latest episode of the t.v. show Parks and Recreation, a guy turned to a bottle of 20 yo North Port to ease the pain of getting shot in the head with a shotgun.

In the first episode of the new thriller Paradox that ended a short while ago, Tamzin Outhwaite shared a dram of what looked like Grants with one of the other characters.

Saw that too... It is a Rare Malts Label but not on a rare malts bottle..

Looking something like this (but again different bottle)

North Port


I liked the fact that he did refer to it as the 20yo... so nice touch to recognize what it is...

Wife was watching CSI LA tonight (yeah, recorded) and the little old lady broke out a Glen Garioch 1958. You couldn't tell whether said bottle was what was claimed (looked like a Tali bottle to me). Now said little old lady pronounced it Glen Gare-ock. Sigh.

Alex Baldwin's character in 30 Rock poured himself some Lagavulin. Maybe the 12 but I couldn't say for sure.
