SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 21): This is the End

Here it is.  The last scotch ever to appear in The Sopranos.  Season 6 episode 15.  Tony steps out onto a balcony and polishes off a sad little bottle of Black Label from the hotel minibar.  

Hope y'all enjoyed this month of Sopranos sightings.  Keep the tips coming.  The clips are piling up at this point but every suggestion you leave in the comments (and on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter) will be posted here at some point.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 20): The Last Glenlivet

Season 6 episode 3.  Tony is still in a coma, still drinking Glenlivet, and he still thinks he's that weird Kevin guy who talks funny.  Check back on Monday for the final Sopranos post.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 19): Tony (I Mean Kevin) Drinking Some Glenlivet

Back to The Glenlivet.  This is near the beginning of season 6 episode 2 during Tony's coma/dream thingy.  Hmmmm I wonder what scotch will be featured in tomorrow's post...

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 18): Just Kidding...It's Black Label Again

I couldn't help myself. Season 5 episode 13.  The one where Tony almost killed Paulie on a boat over a joke he repeated to a guy about his wife which was told by another guy two years earlier and almost got the other guy killed in an elevator in Miami.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 17): Back to Black...Again

This one is a short shot of Tony pouring/sipping some Black Label. The scene takes place near the beginning of the 10th episode of season 5. The next sighting will not be another Johnnie Walker. Promise.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 16): Tony Chugs Some Blue Label

We're already up to season 5. The sightings keep coming but there are only a few more left before the end of the month. This scene is from episode 2 when Tony and Carmella are going through a rough patch and he moves back into his mother's house.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 15): The First Glenlivet Appearance

It appears as though the series had officially decided to branch out from the Black Label at this point. This scene is from season 4 episode 5.  Adriana serves Tony a glass of Glenlivet when he comes to check out her new nightclub.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 14): Finally! Some Glenfiddich!

It has taken nearly 3 full seasons but we finally got ourselves a genuine Glenfiddich sighting.  A very pissed off Tony sits down to enjoy a glass of Glenfiddich but Paulie won't leave him alone.  The bottle shows up at the 15 minute mark in episode 12.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 13): These Black Label Sightings Are Getting Ridiculous

This clip speaks for itself.  Season 3 episode 17 entitled "Pine Barrens".  This is the most critically acclaimed Sopranos episode and for good reason.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 12): Another Christmas Sighting

Here is the second Black Label sighting from the classic Sopranos Christmas episode. This is from one of the many flashbacks Tony has throughout the episode.  Back to the less festive clips tomorrow.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 11): Johnnie Walker in a Winter Wonderland

Who could forget the classic Christmas episode from season 3 entitled "...To Save Us All From Satan's Power"?  During this episode we get to see several flashbacks to the Christmas of 1995 in which Tony begins to piece together the origin and causes of Big Pussy's betrayal.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 10): Degenerate Gambler Orders Black Label

Looks like this guy needs a little help coping with his bust out.  Fortunately, Benny and Furio are there to offer some moral support and a shot of Johnnie Black.  This clip is from season 3 episode 9.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 9): Ralph Gets Tony a J&B

This is the second scotch scene from the same episode (Season 3 episode 4) as the last post. Had to include it since it features Ralphie Boy, the greatest character in the series.  Lots more to come.  Any guesses on which scotch will be in tomorrow's post? Here's a hint...its Black Label again.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 8): Back to Black

After a brief break from Johnnie Walker Black Label with the previous post featuring Johnnie Gold, we are back with the 5th sighting (so far) in the series.  The scene takes place about 28 minutes into season 3 episode 4.  This is the first of two scotch related scenes in this particular episode.  the second one kinda sucks but I'll post it tomorrow because its a free country and I'll do whatever I want, now leave me alone.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 7) The First Appearance of Johnnie Walker Gold Label

Bet ya didn't see this one coming.  This quick clip from season 2 episode 12 features Big Pussy gifting a bottle of delicious JW Gold to an undercover undercover FBI agent.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 6): Make That Four Black Labels in a Row

Here's a quick clip of Hesh and Moltisanti playing a friendly card game with a bottle of JW Black at the end of season 2 episode 11.  Some of the best scenes throughout the series are the ones in which the guys are just hanging out at The Bing or Satriale's.  This one barely counts as an official scotch sighting but tomorrow's post will definitely make up for it.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 5): Three Black Labels in a Row

Another day, another Johnnie Walker Black Label appearance.  This one is from the 3rd episode of season 2.  Crazy Richie Aprile has just gotten out of the joint after 10 years and the gang are throwing him a welcome home party with a huge bottle of Johnnie Black.

SOPRANOS MONTH (Part 4): Black Label in the Season 2 premiere

This is the second Johnnie Walker Black Label sighting and there are more to come.  The Sopranos actually has more scotch sightings than Mad Men, Supernatural, and Dexter combined! We're just getting started here.

SOPRANO'S MONTH: Here's the 2nd Scotch Sighting From Season 1

Who's Ready for a Month of Soprano's Scotch Sightings?

Can you believe that next month will mark TEN YEARS since "The Sopranos" went off the air?  The final episode of what was arguably the greatest series in history aired over a solid decade ago and we've been stuck with a bunch of substitute teachers ever since.  On June 10th, let us all raise a glass of Johnnie Walker Black Label, or Blue Label, or Gold Label, or Glenlivet, or Glenfiddich, or Cutty Sark and toast to the 10 year Sopranniversary.  

Each of these clips will be posted in order of when they appeared throughout the show's 86 episode run.  The clip above is a classic scene from Season 1 episode 2 entitled "46 Long".  It features the boys at the Bing watching TV, counting cash, having a few laughs, and sipping some Cutty Sark.

Also, If any HBO execs would like to read my spec script for a Johnny Boy & Uncle Junior prequel/spinoff show, hit me up.  It's only 72,000 pages long and features very little Janice.
