This wasn't easy. There have been many Lagavulin mentions and appearances throughout the 7 season of the brilliant NBC comedy Parks and Recreation. I believe what you are about to watch is the final tally of all of the sightings of this peaty bad boy. There have been rumors of another sighting from season 3 but I've yet to find it. If anyone out there is aware of this elusive scene please let me know and it'll be added immediately. Here we go.
Season 3 Episode 6
Season 2 Episode 15
Season 4 Episode 19
Season 4 Episode 22
And last but not least, here is the greatest scotch sighting in history...
This scene begins at the 18:29 mark when Detective Joe Gavalin (Ford) comes home from a long day's work and cracks open a bottle of Lagavulin. There is also a bottle of BalvenieDoublewood clearly visible in the scene.
His lady friend Ruby (Lena Olin) joins him later in the clip. Be sure to watch it all the way to the end. Looks like Ford enjoys donuts almost as much as he enjoys single malts.
Dude does a lot of drinking in this film. I mean A LOT of drinking. As you can see from the screenshots below, Mordecai is rarely seen without some type of spirit in his hand. He's constantly consuming everything from brandy, to wine, to scotch. He even sips a mint julep during the scene where he meets Olivia Munn's character. But the most interesting scene (of course) is when Mordecai wakes up in LA's Standard Hotel with a bottle of Lagavulin 16 on his bedside table.
