Glenlivet Comes to Silicon Valley

If you haven't seen an episode of HBO's hit comedy Silicon Valley it's probably because you are a humorless zombie who sucks the fun out of everything while spreading despair and melancholy wherever you go.  The scene above features Erich Bachman, one of the most brilliantly written/acted characters on television, sipping some Glenlivet by the pool.  Minor spoiler alert since this it the final scene of the 3rd season finale.

Can't wait for season 4!

Ryan Gosling Orders Up a Scotch in "The Nice Guys"

This flick is absolutely hilarious and Ryan Gosling may have turned in the best comedic performance I've seen in years.  As a fan of writer/director Shane Black's brand of action packed and comedic buddy movies, The Nice Guys ended up being everything the trailer had me hoping for.  The clip above takes place near the end of the film but I edited out any spoilers.

I've also included a great video essay by Evan Puschak (aka Nerdwriter1) about Shane Black's authentic and honest use of violence in films like Lethal Weapon, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, and more.

Matthew McConaughey's Short Film About Wild Turkey Bourbon

As all six of our devout followers may remember, it was a scene from Matthew McConaughey' movie The Lincoln Lawyer which was the inspiration for this site over 5 years ago.  Now, after nearly 350 whisky sightings from film and television, it has come full circle.  Mr. McConaughey has been named creative director of Wild Turkey Kentucky Bourbon and has made this fantastic short film in which he tours the distillery, interviews the Russell family, and samples a pre-prohibition era bourbon.

Don't forget to check out the three previous McConaughey sightings here, here, and here.
