The First Scotch in "Californication" is a Fake

Hopefully this is the last we'll ever see of the Balvenie ripoff known as The Stafford Twin Wood.  The previous post featured this fake single malt being prominently displayed in an episode of "Ray Donovan".  Thanks to SC's loyal viewers we are now able to spot this bottle in the 9th episode from season 6 of "Californication".  There is a close-up of the label at the beginning of the clip but don't blink or you'll miss it.

The Stafford Twin Wood Scotch in "Ray Donovan"


  1. This prop bottle seems to have been around for a while. I just saw it in a 2006 episode of King of Queens (yeah, yeah, I know, but I was too tired to change the channel). The odd part is that the scene was supposed to show Kevin James drinking cheap booze (12 year old cheap booze?) to get through his days as a supervisor at his job. Real funny stuff...

  2. Season 7, Episode 4 of How I Met Your Mother shows Robin hiding under a table drinking a bottle of this. About 14:50 into the episode.

  3. On Ray Donovan it is 21 years old - just rewound to confirm....
