Olivia Wilde & Bobby Cannavale Drinking Chivas in the Series Premiere of HBO's "Vinyl"

Any tv series which begins with an opening shot of the main character chugging Chivas is ok in my book.  We're only two episodes in and already this show has proven itself to be both thought-provoking and wildly entertaining.

There are two Chivas sightings in the premiere episode of Vinyl and I have included both in the clip above.  This is the first appearance of Bobby Cannavale on Scotch Cinema, but Olivia Wilde is no stranger to scotch imbibing.  Here's a clip of her ordering Macallan 25 in the movie The Change Up.

Balmoor Sighting in "Lipstick Jungle"

So it turns out there was a show called Lipstick Jungle which apparently aired on NBC back in 2008 and 2009.  It lasted all of 2 seasons and starred Brooke Shields.  Don't worry though, I've done all the heavy lifting for you and found the most important moment from the entire series.  An appearance of a fake scotch near the end of the season 2 premiere.  Something tells me Balmoor 12 tastes exactly like iced tea.

Rob Lowe Chugging Balmoor in "The Grinder"

Let me begin by saying this show is hilarious.  Rob Lowe plays my favorite type of comedic character; an arrogant dude with absolutely zero self-awareness who occasionally ends up being right and is somehow endearing.   I guarantee if you watch 5 minutes of The Grinder you will be laughing your ass off.  Lowe plays a fake TV lawyer who also works as a real lawyer at his brother's law firm.  The brother is played to perfection by Fred Savage.

Speaking of things that are fake, Balmoor is a fake-ass scotch as well.  It has popped up a few times throughout the years.  Here's a scene featuring Jerry O'Connell and Jim Belushi drinking Balmoor in an episode of the promptly cancelled The Defenders.

And here's Timothy Hutton serving a shot of Balmoor to a lady played by either Leslie Bibb or Molly Sims (or Emma Caulfield).  I honestly can't tell the difference.

Our next post will be a Balmoor sighting as well.  After that I promise we'll get back to the real stuff.

Dewar's Category in an Episode of Jeopardy!

Here's another scotch category from Jeopardy!  The previous one was less than a year ago but this one was slightly more interesting in my opinion.  This one only featured math-related questions about  Dewar's.  I assume this category resulted from some sort of sponsorship from Dewar's itself in an effort to promote their new 12 year bottling.  Here's some more promotion, courtesy of yours truly, which is absolutely free.  Dewar's 12 year is one of the top 3 best blends I have ever had the pleasure of tasting.  Just finished the bottle last week and was sad to see it go.  Pick yourself up a bottle from Master of Malt by clicking here.  Heaven knows the price is right!

Say "Aloha" to Some Lagavulin

Here's a Lagavulin 16 sighting in a movie which nobody saw yet everyone somehow managed to hate.  I didn't find Aloha to be nearly as terrible as the interwebosphere had instructed me to think it would be.  Of course, I could watch 2 hours of Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams staring at a wall while someone in the background ran their fingernails across a chalkboard and I'd still rate the movie a solid 6.

The Lagavulin shows up at about the 1 hour and 45 minute mark.  Very near the end.  I would tell you that there is a spoiler in this clip but I highly doubt it will affect your decision to watch it either way.

Swing By Master of Malt to snag your very own bottle of one of the FIVE Lagavulin expressions they currently carry.
