The First Scotch in "Californication" is a Fake

Hopefully this is the last we'll ever see of the Balvenie ripoff known as The Stafford Twin Wood.  The previous post featured this fake single malt being prominently displayed in an episode of "Ray Donovan".  Thanks to SC's loyal viewers we are now able to spot this bottle in the 9th episode from season 6 of "Californication".  There is a close-up of the label at the beginning of the clip but don't blink or you'll miss it.

Why is There a Fake Scotch in "Ray Donovan"?

Why why WHY?  There have been more real scotch sightings in Showtime's "Ray Donovan" Than nearly any other series on television.  Yet for some reason this scene from the end of season 1 episode 9 features a bottle of something called The Stafford Twin Wood 12 year old single malt scotch.  The Stafford is, of course, 100% fake and has never appeared in any other show or film.  Or perhaps it has....

Stay tuned for tomorrow's post.

Ray Donovan Swallows Some Black Label

So there seems to be no end in sight when it comes to the "Ray Donovan" scotch sightings.  This Black Label appearance is from season 1 episode 10.  Somebody just sent me a hot tip about an overlooked Balvenie appearance from the previous episode as well.  More on this story as it develops.

MACALLAN MONTH: Daniel Craig Demonstrates How NOT to Drink Macallan in "Layer Cake"

Hope y'all enjoyed our month of Macallan sightings.  Let us know what whisky you'd like to see more sightings from in the future.  There's likely enough Glenlivet, Black Label, and Glenfiddich out there to fill the rest of 2017.

If you're a fan of gangster movies and you haven't seen "Layer Cake" then you oughta be ashamed of yourself.  This 2004 flick really packs a punch.  Great directing by Matthew Vaughn (who also directed Kick-Ass) and awesome acting by James Bond himself.

There is a Macallan sighting at the 1:00:50 mark which you can watch below.  Daniel Craig (whose character doesn't have a name) needs some help coming to terms with the fact that he just committed his first murder.  He decides to pulverize some recreational pharmaceuticals and washes 'em down with a bottle of Macallan.  What a waste of perfectly good scotch.
