Off the Island

When Desmond met with Charles Widmore to ask for his daughter's hand in marriage, Widmore took out two glasses and bottle of MacCutcheon 60-year whisky, and poured some into one glass, explaining the many achievements of Admiral Anderson MacCutcheon. He said the whisky was the Admiral's crowning achievement, and one swallow is worth more than what Desmond would make in a month. He left the other glass empty, claiming Desmond, unlike the Admiral, would never be great, and was therefore unworthy of drinking his whisky or marrying Penelope. Desmond also saw a bottle of the whisky behind the bar in the pub. ("Flashes Before Your Eyes")

Anthony Cooper prefers MacCutcheon.

Locke's father, Anthony Cooper, also poured him a glass of this whisky before he threw him out of an eight story window. ("The Man from Tallahassee")

In 2005, Widmore had taken to sleeping with a bottle of MacCutcheon next to his bed. ("The Shape of Things to Come")

Before returning to the Island, Sayid drank MacCutcheon in a U.S. bar, where it was said to cost $120 USD a glass. He met Ilana at the bar, who agreed to tell him about herself if he also bought her a glass. ("He's Our You")

On the Island

Charlie found a bottle in Sawyer's stash and planned to use it to get Desmond drunk enough to reveal his secrets. Desmond refused to drink until he saw what brand it was. MacCutcheon Scotch whisky had become a symbol to him of his unworthiness in Widmore's eyes, and so the opportunity to obtain and drink it when presented to him by Charlie was irresistible. ("Flashes Before Your Eyes")

Trivia

  • Admiral MacCutcheon is the name of a character in a television remake film of the classic story, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (by Jules Verne). In this remake, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje plays the character Cabe Attucks.
  • In chess, the "MacCutcheon" is a variation of the French Defense opening [1][2] [3]. Related books include Remember the MacCutcheon by James Eade, as well as numerous New In Chess yearbooks.
  • Outside the US, scotch is sold in 700ml (23.67 fl.oz.) bottles. Assuming Desmond would have made 930 AUD (750 USD) a week working in the administrative department and that "a swallow" was about 1.5 oz, the bottle of 60-year-old would cost more than 63,800 AUD (51,500 USD). Per shot it would cost over 4,040 AUD (3,260 USD).
  • In the US, scotch is sold in 750 ml (25.36 fl.oz.) bottles, and standard shots are 1.5 fl.oz. At $120 a glass, a bottle would cost $2,030. Of course scotch is available in different ages, and a bottle of say 15-year-old, would cost much much less than a bottle of 60-year-old.
  • Currently, the worlds most expensive Scotch is a $75,000 1926 Macallan. According to the link, the bottle in question was sold to a business man in South Korea, which is where the Paik family is from.
