I`ve been watching the Sopranos a lot lately and i noticed Tony ordered A Glenlivet a few times and i also noticed he had a bottle of Laphroaig in his office in the bing club. I`ve watched a few movies where malts have been drunk or seen. In the man who would be king michael Caine and Christopher Plummer share Glenlivet 15 years old on the train. I know Tony Stark a.k.a Ironman likes Laphroaig and in the Lincoln lawyer Mathew McConaughey drinks the Balvenie out of the bottle. I`ve seen Highland Park in Inception. As anyone else seen single malts in movies. If this has already been discussed then i apologies.

i`v seen an Ardbeg on the table in `the Matrix` 

inmediately i porred my own Ardbeg corryvreckan . ....... its a so strong marketing thing:

 youre focussed on an exciting movie, identified with the story or the mainrole player.

  and suddenly comes this botle that you know, so then its a part of youre attention and you feel you want it to.

Daniel Craig has a bottle of Cragganmore (12?) in "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo".
Colin Firth in "A Single Man" drinks North Port 20 Rare Malts.  He keeps it in his desk happy

Haven`t seen the film yet but i am sure the distillery they visit is Balblair. I`m a big Ken Loach fan and the film is getting great reviews so i`m looking forward to it.

there is also a lot of whisky drinking in the cult-series `mad men`. (according to the Dutch press it created a single malt hype that raised the sale with 22%.)

In the comedy series Two and a half Men Charlie Sheen drinks a lot of whisky. Its not always easy to spot the brand but I`ve seen Glenlivit on a few occasions and also a Glenmorangie.

Wedding Crashers has a prominent scene with a priest and a bottle of Glenlivet 12.


I know I have seen many others but I am drawing a blank currently.

Watched the movie Swingers last night and there is a scene in the casino where Jon Favreau orders a single malt and he asks for either Glenlivet or Glenfiddich and in the end he just says anything with a Glen in it.

Just remembered another one, and this is actually mentioned by name.  In the movie Morning Glory, a character is drinking a Bruichladdich, while he says it is a 40 ( maybe 50) year old, I do not know their bottles well enough to know if it was true.  But it definitely looked like a laddie bottle.

It is possible that Keanu Reeves ask for Ardbeg as he also drink Ardbeg whisky in Constantine.

A few years ago there was a Discovery program on a Las Vegas Casino, 
Green Valley Ranch` . One of the `high rollers` ordered a Macallan 18 on the rocks. 


Alright, it is his money and he should drink his whisky as he likes. Yet my initial reaction was similar to Richard Patterson`s reaction when someone orders a single malt on the rocks: stab his eyes out!

In Charlie Wilson´s War  Philip Seymour Hoffman gives a old Talisker to Tom Hanks telling him the stoy of it, that appears in a Robert Louis Stevenson poem. Funny scene.

The movie "Carnage" (Roman Polanski, 2011) is probably the movie where whisky has got more importante than being just a drink;  it´s a catalyst of the development of the movie. It´s a Bruichladdich 18 yo. I suggest you to see that movie and try to not have a dram; I was not able!!
