Every Scotch Sighting From 'Last Vegas'

By popular demand, here are all of the sightings of the mythical scotch known as Noble Stag from the 2013 film Last Vegas.  There might be a few mild spoilers in the clip, so be warned.  Also, if you look closely you may spot a quick glimpse of a Dewar's 18 bottle.

The Glencallan 1962 in Hart of Dixie

Here's a clip from episode 21 of the 3rd season of CW's Hart of Dixie.  Actually, it's two clips from the same episode which prominently featured the Glencallan 1962.  We all likely know the story of the world's most popular fake scotch at this point so I'll spare you the details.  After all, it has shown up everywhere from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. to Sons of Anarchy and many other three-word shows with "of" in the title.

Check out the video and some screenshots below.

The Late Robin Williams on Drinking With Scotsmen

I still haven't been able to wrap my head around the passing of Robin Williams.  One of the greatest comedians in history.  I truly hope that, considering the circumstances, no one finds this post to be in poor taste.  It is simply a clip of one of his stand-up specials which I've always found to be hilarious.

And here's one of the scotch sightings from about 3 years ago featuring Mr. Williams' amazing performance in The Birdcage.

Oh Captain, My Captain...He will be missed.

Another Cutty Sark Sighting from Mad Men

Cutty 12 to be precise.  One thing that consistently impresses me about AMC's Mad Men is the attention to detail.  Everything from fashion to slang to cigarettes and especially alcohol is historically accurate.  In this scene from season 7 episode 2, Peter Campbell (Vincent Kartheiser) drinks from a vintage bottle of Cutty 12.  I'm not sure exactly when they changed the label from simply "Cutty 12" to "Cutty Sark 12 year" but I'm pretty sure it was around the late 70s or early 80s.  Either way, I'd pay top dollar for this retro bottle today.

I haven't finished watching the final season of Mad Men yet but hopefully there will be a few more sightings.  Fell free to let me know if you spot one.  You can check out our many other Mad Men-related posts here.
