Time to "Get Down" With Some Cutty Sark

Any fan of Hip Hop isn't a true fan unless they've studied it's origin.  The origin of Hip Hop is a story unlike any other.  That story is told brilliantly in the new Netflix original series The Get Down.  Set against the backdrop of a decaying New York City in the 1970s, the series outlines the birth of the four elements of a musical and cultural revolution which conquered the globe.

Also, there is a Cutty Sark sighting in episode 2.

Marvel's Agents of S.C.O.T.C.H.

The sightings are coming in last and furious*.  Here's the third scotch sighting from Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.  I decided to wait a few months to post this scene in order to avoid spoiling the season 3 finale.  The clip features a 40 year old Balvenie but also reveals a twist from the very last scene in the episode.  

It has been over 3 years since there was a genuine Balvenie sighting in a movie or show, so needless to say I was pretty pumped to finally find this one.  Keep sending the clips and I promise they will be posted.  Most of the whisky sightings seem to get sent via Twitter but lately I've gotten quite a few from Instagrammers posting screenshots and tagging @ScotchCinema in the post.  Much appreciated.

Also, if anyone wants to send me a sample of this $5000.00 masterpiece, simply message me and I'll give you my address.

*There are zero scotch sightings from the Fast & Furious film series.

Hakushu Spotted in "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

It appears the the agents have finally decided to switch from drinking fake scotch to drinking REAL single malt whiskey.  Season 3 episode 11 entitled Bouncing Back features Phil Coulson (Clark Gregg) enjoying a glass of 12 year Hashuku with Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) while discussing his badass new hand.

Here is the previous so-called scotch sighting from way back in season 1.  Gotta love Glencallan!

This is also the first official sighting for The Hakushu.  I say first "official" because over 4 and a half years ago we posted about a scene from Kill Bill Vol. 1 which featured  a possible Hakushu Pure Malt.  Check it out below.

"Westworld" Premiere Features James Marsden Ordering Up Some Rye

Stop whatever pointless activity you're currently doing and watch Westworld now.  NOW! Why are you still reading this?  Get that HBO GoPro app or whatever its called and strap yourself in.  This might be the greatest premiere of any show I have ever seen.  The reviews seem to back me up too.

The first scene from the episode features Teddy Flood (James Marsden) walking into the local saloon like Rocky Raccoon and ordering himself a glass of rye whiskey.  I just had to include it.  This is a series with seemingly endless possibilities and I can not wait for episode 2.  Thanks for continuing to read this post after I suggested that you stop.
