@Nelom, how does one access the episodes? Is there a way to do it online?

It occurred to me that those previous screenshots would make more sense accompanied with a shot of the whisky in question, as the majority of people on here will likely never have seen or heard of Ninety.

@Nelom and the misnomer of "Rye" on the label for heritage purpose only.

@Astroke Indeed. That's a 100% corn whisky, but they've chosen to call it rye. As your comment implies, in Canada "rye" has long been a slang term for just "whisky", so for heritage reasons that's an entirely legal label. I don't really care what they call it, as long as it keeps being as tasty as it is.

On another note, it just occurred to me shape of the windows in that one screenshot are reminiscent of the shape of the label and bottle... Maybe that's why they ended up choosing that one.

I think they were drinking Casa Noble (obviously not a whiskey) in Bloodline on Netflix. That show is highly recommended. I was just piquing my brain and my wife reminded of this. IT wasn't the Anejo, though.

Revisiting an old thread.

Just watched the new Michael Fassbender film 'the Killer'. He plays a fairly clichéd unemotional hitman. It's a decent film but nothing you've not seen before.

There is a scene towards the end of the film where he's in a New York restaurant with Tilda Swinton. She's a regular at the restaurant and asks the waiter for a flite of whiskies and 'her bottle'.

When her bottle comes it is clearly to whisky geeks a Diageo bottle. I initially think this is a silly product placement stunt from Diageo and 'her bottle' will be Talisker 18 or something like that but looking closer at the bottle I see it is a bottle of 'Brora'. The flite of whiskies are also served in glencairns instead of the standard Hollywood tumbler. The only thing that indicates Swinton actually isn't a whisky connoisseur is that she downs the flite of whiskies each in one gulp.
