The First Scotch Sighting from NBC's "The Blacklist"

Here's a quick glimpse of yet another mystery malt.  This one is from season 2 episode 12 of The Blacklist.  Many of these fake scotches are difficult to spot on screen and this is no accident.  Movies and TV shows strive for as much realism as possible without getting sued so it makes sense that they'd refer to the region or the age without mentioning a brand.  The actor in this scene simply refers to it as a "highland" scotch, but the fuzzy screenshot below reveals the name to be "Glen Dochart".

The First Non-Macallan Scotch Sighting From 'Suits'

It's been exactly 2 years since our last clip from the USA network series Suits and this one is rather strange.  First of all, the video is a little long because this particular scotch is referenced several times through out this episode.  Also its a fake.  That's right, you're probably not the least bit surprised to learn that there's no such thing as a $12,000 Mactasker.  Although they do make it seem like an absolutely delicious single malt.  This scene is from season 3 episode 12 entitled "Yesterday's Gone".

Did You Spot the Scotch In 'Better Call Saul'?

Did you miss us?  Well we missed you too!  And what better way to bring back the scotchiness than with a dose of criminal lawyer (criminal/lawyer) Saul Goodman?  This clip is from the very first scene of the first episode of Better Call Saul where we find Cinnabon manager Jimmy McGill concocting a poorly measured mix of Dewar's and Drambuie.  Nice to see that the scotch sightings have carried over from Breaking Bad to this amazing new spinoff series.  I've watched the first four episodes and I already love the direction in which this show is heading.   Even if you weren't a die hard Breaking Bad fan you should still give your old pal Saul a chance.
