Another Cutty Sark Sighting from Mad Men

Cutty 12 to be precise.  One thing that consistently impresses me about AMC's Mad Men is the attention to detail.  Everything from fashion to slang to cigarettes and especially alcohol is historically accurate.  In this scene from season 7 episode 2, Peter Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) drinks from a vintage bottle of Cutty 12.  I'm not sure exactly when they changed the label from simply "Cutty 12" to "Cutty Sark 12 year" but I'm pretty sure it was around the late 70s or early 80s.  Either way, I'd pay top dollar for this retro bottle today.

I haven't finished watching the final season of Mad Men yet but hopefully there will be a few more sightings.  Fell free to let me know if you spot one.  You can check out our many other Mad Men-related posts here.

Another Vintage Jameson Sighting in Boardwalk Empire

Here's a quick clip from the final episode of season 4.  This one features Al Capone who happens to be one of the best characters on television and is played to perfection by British actor Stephen Graham.  I'd love to see Capone get his own spinoff series after Boardwalk Empire wraps up next year.

This is the 4th post from this series and the 2nd appearance of this vintage Jameson bottle.  Click here to watch the pervious scenes.  Very sad to hear that season 5 will be the last.  Hopefully the series will go out with a bang.

Scotch Cinema Will Return After These Messages

It has been quite a while since the last scotch sighting but the hiatus is almost over.  Plenty of new clips coming up.  The site is currently going through some renovations so in the meantime, here are some interesting whisky commercials to hold everyone over.  Haven't done any of these commercial breaks in ages.  The ones below are rather quirky to say the least.  One is fake (I'll let you figure out which one), the Duran Duran advert is just completely bizarre, and the McEwan's Scotch Beer clip might be the worst commercial I've ever seen.  Even though the god awful song has been stuck in my head all day.
