Denis Leary Making Fun of Whisky Snobs

First off, let me apologize for the less-than-hi-def video quality in this clip.  I transferred it from an old VHS copy I bought a thousand years ago and time has not been kind to it.  Denis Leary's No Cure For Cancer and Lock N' Load stand-up comedy specials are two of my all time favourites.  I've always been a huge fan of his brand of humour and his delivery.

The clip below is from a bit in Lock N' Load where Leary expresses his disdain for people who are way to into things like premium coffee, beer, and especially whisk(e)y.  This one hits pretty close to home but ya gotta love his passion (disgust) for pretentious people.

MacCutcheon 60 Appearance in "Once Upon a Time"

I bet you never thought you'd see this again.  Or maybe you did.  The 60 year old single malt known as MacCutcheon first appeared in an episode of Lost.  Actually, it appeared SEVEN times throughout the series. Click here to see every MacCutcheon sighting from Lost and here for an awesome appearance from Fringe.

During the first MacCutcheon appearance in Lost, a character mentions that one swallow is worth "more than you could make in a month". I guess the two ladies in this video must be either very wealthy or very careless.

The clip is from the sixth episode of season one entitled "The Shepherd".  Big shout out to my lovely fiance Lorraine for finding this sighting for me. Thanks for looking out for me, baby!  I swear I don't watch the show.

Some Weird, Fake Scotch Spotted in "The Mentalist"

The Mentalist airs Sunday nights on CBS and stars the most well dressed man on TV, Simon Baker.  That is literally all I know about the show.  I'm not even sure what a mentalist is but I assume its like a profiler or something. There, now that that's out of the way let us get down to business.

The 18 year old Enrich single malt scotch in this video pops up about minutes into the 11th episode from season 5 entitled "Days of Wine and Roses".  My favourite sightings are the ones where the scotch is featured prominently in the scene (even if it is a fake) so I had to include this one.  Thanks to Danny Maas for sending me the clip on the Scotch Cinema Facebook page.

Every Macallan Scotch Sighting From Skyfall

Here it is.  The one we've all been waiting for.  What better way to kick off another year of sightings than by featuring the best clip of 2012.  Skyfall won't be released on video for a few months but luckily a generous malt maniac was able to send me a few clips from his advance copy.  I had to do a bit of shabby editing in order to avoid any spoilers, but ALL FOUR Macallan sightings are now compiled in the video below.

This is definitely the first appearance of a 50 year old Macallan on film.  The closest we've had in the past was this 25 year old sighting a few months back.  Click here and here to check out the previous scotch scenes featuring Daniel Craig in other films.  I've also included a few screenshots and some great Skyfall artwork below.

And the Winner is.......Dexter Morgan!

In the race to find the television series with the most scotch sightings it appears Dexter has taken the lead with a grand total of six.  Looks like the Bay Harbour Butcher has defeated the Winchester brothers.

The scene below is from the 9th episode of season 7 entitled "Helter Skelter".  Dexter himself (Michael C. Hall) doesn't actually appear in the scene but there is a bit of a spoiler in there so you may want to hold off if you aren't up to date with the current season.

Here is the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th, sighting.  I'm sure there will be more to come in the 8th (and unfortunately final) season.
