Two Sketchy Scotchy Sightings From Breakout Kings

Both of these scenes took place fairly close together in episode 10 from the first season of the A&E series Breakout Kings.  The first scotch appearance is about 25 minutes in and the second is from around the 28 minute mark.  Neither is an actual brand of Scotch of course.  That would make my job too easy.  I swear to god the first bottle simply has the word SCOTCH written in big red letters.  The prop guys on these shows seem to be getting lazier and lazier.  Could be worse.  They could've used another Glencallan.

The second bottle is a little more interesting.  It's a black bottle with a black label.  I did a freeze-frame and a zoom and found something I've never seen before.  Even in the hundreds of clips I've uploaded to this site.  I was having difficulty reading the name on the bottle when I noticed that the "12" year age statement was reversed.  After re-watching the scene several times I realized that the zipper on the sleeve of the interrogator's jacket kept switching from left to right.  For some reason, whoever edited this scene decided to flip the frame horizontally when showing the close-up of the scotch bottle.  I assumed the reason for this was to obscure the brand name for legal reasons, but when I flipped it back, I noticed that the label simply read "Scotch".  Another bogus brand.  This time in black as opposed to the white label from the previous scene.  Strange I tells ya...strange indeed.  Check out the video as well as some screenshots below.

Thanks (yet again) to my buddy Cato Auestad for sending me this sighting.  This guy has the sharpest eye around when it comes to...whatever this is.
