We sailed HAL the last time a couple of years ago and did bring scotch on. We put it in our luggage. Never a question. We were not trying to smuggle it I will mention, but we had so much wine to carry on we didn't have a place for the scotch. many lines now are cracking down, I would expect HAL to do so in the near future...You can still bring all the wine you want on board. Again, that may change soon as well. If HAL has a bar set up program you might be safer just going that way.
