Glencallan Spotted in an Episode of "Burn Notice"


Ya know what would be amazing?  Sitting down and enjoying a glass of 30 year old Glencallan to celebrate a job well done.  Know what would be even better?  If 30 year old Glencallan actually EXISTED!!!

That's right, folks.  We've found another fake.  After reading the label I got pretty excited thinking that this was some rare or discontinued brand.  Then I decided to do a little digging and it turns out that Glencallan is the the creation of a Hollywood prop company known as "Independent Studio Services" which specializes in these kinds of phony baloney products.  The two very convincing Glencallan labels can be seen on the ISS website.

The sighting takes place at the 39:49 mark in the 12th episode from season 3 of "Burn Notice" entitled "Noble Causes".

  1. Hello!Same thing just happened to me. I'm watching Grey's Anatomy, S06e12, and Glencallan appears at the 24.40 mark. I googled it since any Glen seems to be an amazing whiskey.And I got here:)Apparently I won't be purchasing it any time soon;)

  3. Actually Glencallen 30 year scotch is a real speyside malt available for about $235 a bottle if you go to mastersofmalt.com. i could imagine they use it because it give them a seemingly rare and expensive 30 year scotch for under $5,000 per bottle. Just for reference.

  4. Well I just watched a the Jan 16 episode of Community, and saw a 40 year old bottle of Glencallen, which in turn caused me to search for it. So is it real?
