The Glenlivet Sightings in "The Birdcage"

Here's the third video from this week's Glenlivet series.

The Glenlivet actually pops up in three separate scenes within the very long, funny, and awkward dinner scene near the end of the movie.  Lots of great performances in this film from a number of top notch actors including Robin Williams and Gene Hackman.  If you look closely at the second scene in the kitchen you can see that Robin Williams actually trips over himself and he & Dan Futterman are clearly trying desperately to hold back their laughter.  Maybe he had a little too much Glenlivet during shooting.  All three clips are edited into one short video below.

You're "Bound" to Enjoy This Glenlivet Sighting

Get it?  Nevermind.

The Wachowski Brother's directorial debut is quite different from the "Matrix" trilogy but there are several of their signature stylistic elements throughout.

The Glenlivet shows up twice in "Bound" and is actually a relatively important plot element.

I've watched this movie several times over the years and hadn't even noticed the Glenlivet.  Probably because I was distracted by all the hot Tilly-on-Gershon action.

Hope you enjoy our second video for Glenlivet week.  Click here to check out all of our previous Glenlivet sightings.  More to come each day. Watch the video below.

"Bound" is now available on DVD:

John Cusack + Glenlivet = Grosse Pointe Blank

Here's an example of what NOT to do with a bottle of Glenlivet.
In this scene from "Grosse Pointe Blank", Martin Q. Blank (John Cusack) stops at his dad's grave when he arrives back in his old hometown.  He proceeds to casually pour out the bottle of Glenlivet on the grave and then walk away.

Thought this would be a good clip to kick off our week of posts dedicated to Glenlivet.  Click here for our previous Glenlivet sightings.

A Case of Glenfiddich in "Get Carter"

We had to add this scene simply because it is the remake of the 1971 film "Get Carter" which originally starred Michael Caine.  The same Michael Caine who plays a supporting role in the 2000 version and is seen carrying a case of Glenfiddich here.

Some are fans of the original and other prefer the Stallone version.  Probably depends on your age and which side of the pond you hail from.

The tense scene takes place 42 minutes in.  Check it out below.

Stifler's Mom Tastes Some 18 Year Old...Scotch

What kind of site would this be if it didn't include the iconic "Milf" scene from the 1999 teen comedy "American Pie"?

This movie has a lot of memorable moments but it is impossible to forget Mrs. Stifler (Jennifer Coolidge) being seduced by her own son's friend, Finch (Eddie Kaye Thomas) at a prom after-party.

The scotch mentioned in the scene is unidentifiable (trust me I tried) but it doesn't really matter.  All we need to know is that it is "Aged 18 years".  The sighting takes place at the 1:20:10 mark in the film.  Enjoy!

Lock, Stock and Two Scotch Sightings

Hard to believe that after almost 60 posts we have never had an Oban sighting.  That is until now of course.

Guy Ritchie's 1998 film "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels" is essential viewing for anyone who loves gangster flicks.  Lots of fast-paced action, dialogue, and humor.  All of which are evident in the two clips below.

The first one is the Oban 14 year old sighting which takes place at the 24:50 mark during the pivotal high-stakes card game.

The second clip is from the 1:28:10 mark and features a large vintage Black Label bottle.

"Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels" is now available on Blu-ray & DVD:

Johnnie Walker Blue Label in "The A-Team"

Looks like we've found our fourth Blue Label sighting.  Click here for the previous three.  This time around the iconic bottle popped up in Iraq of all places.

At the 24:50 mark in "The A-Team" Hannibal Smith (Liam Neeson) enjoys a glass of JW Blue and a cigar while discussing a mission with General Morrison (played by Gerald McCraney).

Been a while since we've had a Liam Neeson post too.  The last one was all the way back in April.  Check it out here and enjoy the A-Team clip below.

Another "Supernatural" Scotch Scene!

"Supernatural" is without a doubt the greatest show you're not watching.  Unless of course you are watching it.

This is our second sighting from this particular show so far and like we mentioned before it features too many whisky appearances to show on this site.  Whisky, and scotch in particular, are subtly woven into the fabric of the majority of episodes to the point where it is almost a character unto itself.  Everyone from demons, to angels, and even some humans consume it regularly.  Just like in real life!

In this episode a demon of Scottish descent named Crowley mistkenly gives up a clue to his identity by devulging his affinity for 30 year old Craig.  The show doesn't come right out and say it but it is clear that they are alluding to Glencraig.  Don't bother to make sense of the clip when watching it as much of the pertinent info has been edited out.  Click here for our pervious "Supernatural" sighting of Johnnie Walker Blue.  Season 7 premiers Sept. 23rd by the way.  Cant wait!

Every Scotch Sighting & Mention in "Swingers"

A few months ago we posted the clip of John Favreau's terrible attempt to order scotch in a Vegas casino.  Well here's a quick compilation of all the appearances of, and references to scotch in director Doug Liman's 1996 comedy starring Vince Vaughan, John Favreau and Ron Livingston.

We spotted Speyburn, Cragganmore, and Glenfiddich bottles (as well as Glenlivet, Dewar's and Glen Garioch mentions) throughout the movie.

Vaughan and Livingston also appeared in previous posts on this site.

Springbank Spotted in "The Bodyguard"

FINALLY!  Our first Springbank appearance!  We actually spotted this delicious Campbelltown single malt in a chick flick of all places.

At the 1:27:34 mark in "The Bodyguard" during a pivotal scene between Frank Farmer (Kevin Costner) and Nicki (Michele Lamar Richards), Frank puts the Springbank bottle back on the shelf and yanks the glass from Nicki's hand.

There is a spoiler in this scene so if you haven't watched it yet then....actually...if you haven't watched it after 19 years then you probably never will and likely don't give a shit either way.  Roll the clip!

Nicolas Cage Drinking Glenlivet in "The Family Man"

This is our fourth Glenlivet sighting so far.  Click here for the others.

We spotted this Glenlivet at the 45:33 mark in "The Family Man".  This is actually a very underrated movie and is great to watch around the holidays.  Can't believe it came out 11 years ago.

In this scene, Jack Campbell (Cage) discovers a bottle of the 12 year old Glenlivet in his desk drawer and wastes no time breaking it open.

Glenmorangie: A Highlander Fit For "The Highlander"

Its been a while since we featured the delicious Highland single-malt known as Glenmorangie.  Click here for the previous post.

In this scene from the 27 minute mark in the original "Highlander" film, Conner MacLeod (Christopher Lambert) orders himself a Glenmorangie before introducing himself to Brenda (played by Roxanne Hart).  This film is our closest thing to a Sean Connery sighting so far since he appears in the film, though not in this scene.  Still keeping an eye out for sightings in the Connery/Bond films.  Fingers crossed.

25 Year Old Glenfarclas in an Episode of "Frasier"

Sorry for the lack of updates lately.  Been on vacation for the last little while.  Many more posts coming soon.

In the meantime, here's a sighting which had to be shared asap. It is our first Glenfarclas appearance and what better one to feature than the dark and delicious 25 year old.

We spotted this smooth, sherry-aged Highlander in episode 7 from season 8 of Frasier entitled "The New Friend".

This clip takes place at the 7:15 mark in the episode.
