Fake Glenlivet in "The People V. OJ Simpson"



I know I know.  It's been a while.  Honestly, I haven't posted a scotch sighting in so long that I'd literally forgotten how.  I stared at the html code for embedding this clip for about 5 minutes before figuring out what to do with it.  

It'll be a slow ramp up for the time being, but the site will be firing on all cylinders soon enough.  There is a huge backlog of clips and I'm slowly getting to all the great sightings y'all have been sending me over the last 4 or 5 months.

The clip above features a bottle of what appears to be The GlenKnolls, a scotch which doesn't actually exist and, up until now, had never been featured on this site.  Oddly enough, the exact same phoney brand appears in the very next sighting from a clip of a different show which someone sent me the following day.  I'll be featuring it in tomorrow's post.

Olivia Wilde & Bobby Cannavale Drinking Chivas in the Series Premiere of HBO's "Vinyl"



Any tv series which begins with an opening shot of the main character chugging Chivas is ok in my book.  We're only two episodes in and already this show has proven itself to be both thought-provoking and wildly entertaining.

There are two Chivas sightings in the premiere episode of Vinyl and I have included both in the clip above.  This is the first appearance of Bobby Cannavale on Scotch Cinema, but Olivia Wilde is no stranger to scotch imbibing.  Here's a clip of her ordering Macallan 25 in the movie The Change Up.

Balmoor Sighting in "Lipstick Jungle"


So it turns out there was a show called Lipstick Jungle which apparently aired on NBC back in 2008 and 2009.  It lasted all of 2 seasons and starred Brooke Shields.  Don't worry though, I've done all the heavy lifting for you and found the most important moment from the entire series.  An appearance of a fake scotch near the end of the season 2 premiere.  Something tells me Balmoor 12 tastes exactly like iced tea.

Rob Lowe Chugging Balmoor in "The Grinder"



Let me begin by saying this show is hilarious.  Rob Lowe plays my favorite type of comedic character; an arrogant dude with absolutely zero self-awareness who occasionally ends up being right and is somehow endearing.   I guarantee if you watch 5 minutes of The Grinder you will be laughing your ass off.  Lowe plays a fake TV lawyer who also works as an real lawyer at his brother's law firm.  The brother is played to perfection by Fred Savage.

Speaking of things that are fake, Balmoor is a fake-ass scotch as well.  It has popped up a few times throughout the years.  Here's a scene featuring Jerry O'Connell and Jim Belushi drinking Balmoor in an episode of the promptly cancelled The Defenders.



And here's Timothy Hutton serving a shot of Balmoor to a lady played by either Leslie Bibb or Molly Sims.  I honestly can't tell the difference.


Our next post will be a Balmoor sighting as well.  After that I promise we'll get back to the real stuff.
