Dimple in Breaking Bad (Part 1)

I was floored when I spotted the bottle of Dimple in the premiere episode of season 5 entitled "Live Free or Die". At the beginning of the episode, Walter White (aka Heisenberg, aka The Danger, aka The One Who Knocks) simply wants to enjoy a dram of Dimple and unwind after a very long day. He gets interrupted several times by some loose ends which need tying up. This was another white-knuckle episode which is not to be missed. #amc #BreakingBad #BryanCranston #AaronPaul #Bob

Mad Men Mania 9: The Final Scotch Sighting

I wish I could say this sighting was was particularly interesting. I wish I could say this scene featured a very rare or sought after brand of scotch. I wish I could tell you Andy fought the good fight and the sisters let him be. Alas, the final scotch sighting from AMC's Mad Men is pretty uneventful. I actually had to edit two scenes together (out of chronological order) in order for you to be able to see the actual bottle. Around 18 minutes into episode 12 of season 7, J

Mad Men Mania 7: The 2nd Cutty Sark Sighting

Cutty 12 to be precise. One thing that consistently impresses me about AMC's Mad Men is the attention to detail. Everything from fashion to slang to cigarettes and especially alcohol is historically accurate. In this scene from season 7 episode 2, Peter Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) drinks from a vintage bottle of Cutty 12. I'm not sure exactly when they changed the label from simply "Cutty 12" to "Cutty Sark 12 year" but I'm pretty sure it was around the late 70s or early 80

Mad Men Mania 6: The 2nd Chivas Sighting

Technically, there were two sightings in this episode, but one was so brief it barely counts. About 2 minutes into the 6th episode of season 6 entitled "For Immediate Release" Peter Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) pours some Chivas for himself and Joan (Christina Hendricks). I've included the clip below even though the bottle wasn't really visible. A much clearer Chivas sighting took place at around the 16 minute mark when Peter pours from the same bottle. This is the 6th Mad M

Mad Men Mania 2: Glenlivet & Chivas

The above clip is from the finale of season two. The episode is entitled "Meditations In An Emergency". #MadMen #Scotch #Whisky #whiskey #Chivas #Glenlivet #AMC #JohnHamm #ElisabethMoss

Mad Men Mania 1: The Balvenie

There have been several different brands of scotch throughout the 6 seasons of AMC's Mad Men. We've seen Glenlivet, Johnny Walker, Chivas, and even Cutty Sark, but this is the first official appearance of Balvenie. The insanely delicious Speyside single malt known as The Balvenie is a personal favorite of mine (I'm actually enjoying a dram of the Double Wood as I type) so the fact that I overlooked this sighting is unforgivable. Especially since it appeared in the first 5 m
