Spend Christmas With The Sopranos and Johnnie Walker (Part 1)


The Sopranos is considered one of the greatest TV shows in history and Johnnie Walker is one of the greatest (if not the greatest) blends.  It's great to see them both come together for the holidays.  After all, Christmas is all about...family.  Check out the hilarious clip above.

Who could forget the classic Christmas episode from season 3 entitled "...To Save Us All From Satan's Power"?  During this episode we get to see several flashbacks to the Christmas of 1995 in which Tony begins to piece together the origin and causes of Big Pussy's betrayal.


Scotch Cinema is currently compiling and editing every Sopranos scotch sighting (there are over 20) for a comprehensive article as a tribute to the 10 year anniversary of the series' ending.  Yes, 2017 will mark 10 years since Tony and his "family" called it quits.  The second Johnnie Walker sighting from the Sopranos Christmas episode will be posted tomorrow.

Booker's Rye Whiskey Named World Whisky of the Year



A unique Kentucky rye has been crowned the planet’s finest dram by the latest edition of Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.
Booker’s Rye 13 Years, 1 Month, 12 Days began life as an experiment by Booker Noe – grandson of Jim Beam – at the family distillery in Clermont, KY, shortly before his death in 2004.
Now it has become his remarkable legacy after landing the title of World Whisky of the Year.
Jim lavishes praise on its “brain-draining, mind-blowing” nose and finish of “amazing depth”.
And he hails it as a “staggering example of a magnificent rye, showing exactly what genius actually means. A very big, unforgettable whiskey from a very big, unforgettable man”.
Booker followed in his iconic grandfather’s footsteps by becoming master distiller at Jim Beam, but he was long-retired when he dabbled one final time.
After he passed away aged 74, son Fred kept an eye on his casks – and the result is pure liquid gold, scoring 97.5 out of 100 in Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible.

The 2nd Most Popular Fake Scotch Appears in an Episode of "Chicago Med"



When I think of fake scotch I immediately think of Glencallan.  There have been countless Glencallan sightings throughout the nearly 6 years since Scotch Cinema launched.  But there is a lesser known phoney whisky which goes by the name of Balmoor.  It has popped up in quite a few cancelled shows over the years.  I hope this faux single malt won't be the kiss of death for Chicago Med the way it was for The Grinder, or Lipstick Jungle, or The Defenders.  Guess we'll have to wait and see.

This scene takes place half way through the 11th episode of season one.  I've never actually seen the show but I assume it has something to do with medical stuff in Chicago.  Enjoy!

Is That Glencallan in "The Mindy Project"?



Time to break out your magnifying glasses and watch this one on your 70" 4k TV.  This scene from season 5 episode 7 of The Mindy Project features a nearly unrecognizable bottle of Glencallan.  Big shout out to Meleklerin Payi for finding so many of these awesome sightings.  

I haven't been keeping up with this series in the last few years but I'm going to have to get back into it asap.  Mindy Kaling is both hilariously awesome and awesomely hilarious.  Also, any fan of the Howard Stern Show knows that The Mindy Project features one of the funniest comedic actors working today, Ike Barinholtz.  He always adds extra hilarity to any show, tv series, or movie which he happens to pop up in.
