Another Fake Glenlivet for a "Modern Family"

It has taken over 6 months but we've finally found more scotch sightings from ABC's Modern Family.  Check out the clip above from season 6 episode 4.  This is another shot of what might be the same bottle of GlenKnobbs...or GlenKnolls.  This is actually the THIRD appearance of this fake scotch and the name on the bottle is still indecipherable.

Kevin Costner Consumes Enough 50 Year Old Scotch to Kill an Army

After watching the 2014 film Black or White starring Kevin Costner and Octavia Spencer it is easy to see why the filmmakers chose to use a fake scotch for all of these scenes.  Elliot Anderson (Costner) drinks so much 50 year old Glencallan in this film that I literally lost count and unfortunately missed a few sightings.  Elliot also has a serious drinking problem and is a terrible drunk.  It is safe to say that very few spirit brands would like to see their product dragged through the mud the way Glencallan was in this film.

I started watching this film solely because several people had told me that there was a pile whisky scotch sightings throughout.  After about 10 minutes I was so caught up in the story and Costner's performance that I was glued to the screen.  Black or White is a drastically underrated movie and I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.  I usually agree with Rotten Tomatoes but this is one of those rare instances where I cannot fathom why the movie was given such a low score.

THREE Laphroaig Sightings in One Movie

Its always great to see this peaty single malt pop up in a movie or tv show.  Its even better when you spot a 25 year.  A bottle of 25 year old Laphroaig is as rare on screen as it is on the shelf of your local whisky shop.  Thanks to the 2014 film Listen Up Philip for featuring it prominently.

TWO WHISKIES: With David Beckham

Before you even ask, Haig Club or David Beckham are not paying us to post all these recent clips and commercials.  Scotch Cinema has a long and storied tradition of posting non-film related clips as well as commercials and interviews.  We will return to our regularly scheduled programming shortly.
