Just getting into the whole whiskey passion, I doubt I would even pay attention to any labels on bottles in movies, except when they are like "in your face" kind of product placement thing.

I saw that too. I paused on the shot and the bottle said Glencallan. I don't remember the reference to Dalmore, though.



Jobi the characters name was Dal. As he poured for his guest, the guest said " Dal, more." :)


In the latest episode of Burn Notice Season 5 Episode 17, 29 minutes in, I saw this bottle they used (apparently its made its appearance before) and it said GlenCallan.
Upon trying to find it, here what I discovered:-

Leverage (Lonely Hearts Job) pours 50 yo Dalmore. Too bad she's drinking out of a shot glass.

In Malice, the great Anne Bankroft is drinking Dalmore 12 and she states:

"Blended whisky is crap no matter what colour the label is".
That statement, directed obviosly at Johnny Walker's range, is so true.

Anne never had Campbeltown Loch 25. Rivals many of the very good single malts.

A recent episode of "30 Rock" featured a bottle of Glenmuckle Bairndavis, though the neck of the bottle had a familiar looking "Est 1824" imprinted on the glass.

So we watched the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (not the Swedish version) last night. In one scene, they ask for a "scotch". The bottle appears to be Cragganmore but you couldn't tell which one. Later on towards the end they are pouring whisky again but you never really get to see the label. However, it had the sea green/blue foil that Bruichladdich favors.

JW Black and Jameson make regular cameos on that show as well. I still remember being exasperated when Jack poured Liz a glass from what looked pretty obviously like a bottle of Jameson and she called it scotch...

Trouble with the Curve features Amy Adams lipping Glenlivet 18. Yes, it's sad that I could identify the bottle based on the labels that were not legible.

The Macallan 50 Year Old is apparently Bond's favorite in Skyfall. (Wonder how much that cost Macallan...)

Great film BTW (so longs as you like Bonds)

I wonder if it really was a bottle of 50 yo (not the contents). It was the older style of Macallan bottles with a 1962 vintage. They also featured a couple of Macallans in the newer style bottles. Not sure if they were the sherry 12 or 18 or if at least one was a fine oak.

NCIS: LA - "greatest whisky....." Shows statement. Bottle looked like a Lagavulin (labels were placed in the same place with the same shape) but the bottle was clear. 18 not 16 and stated "Islay Single Malt Whiskey" Yup, a mistake in the photoshop.

The TV show Brooklyn 99 features a bottle labeled 'Old Crow Crotch'. Can't seem to find it on shelves anywhere...

Don't know if these have been mentioned yet.

I was really impressed with the authentic old fashioned Talisker bottle that was gifted to Tom Hanks' character in Charlie Wilson's War. Impressed and jealous. I want one.

Also, I remember distinctly in Ocean's Twelve when the Chinese acrobat character is fighting with his girlfriend, there are a grip of liquor bottles on the bar, and among them is a bottle of Ardbeg. Good choice.

For "How I Met Your Mother", the single malt they often order is called "Glen McKenna", but the writers admitted to being fans of Macallan.

It is a great film for sure -- wish I could have partaken in the sampling of the actual whisky with them.

On a distantly related topic, the James Bond of Ian Fleming's novels preferred Black & White, but also drank Haig & Haig and especially Pinch/Dimple in later novels. I don't believe that there were many single malts bottled in the late 50s/early 60s.

Contrary to popular notion, the literary Bond preferred whisky over martinis.
