Top six whisky movie moments

From Ron Burgundy’s love of “Scotchy Scotch Scotch” to Bond’s dalliance with The Macallan, behind many a leading man is a strong malt whisky, as this round up proves.

    Bond doesn’t “skilfully” shot the glass off Severines head, he misses resulting in Silva shooting her and bond saying “a waste of good scotch”

    @Paul, noticed that too but they’ve changed it since; so instead of “skilfully” shooting the glass off her head TDB now says “Bond deliberately misses a shot glass” – I wonder who wrote the copy in the first place because they obviously didn’t watch the clip!

    What? No mention of the 1962 Dalmore in The Kingsman?
