Ben Stiller & Ad Rock Split a Bottle of Talisker in "While We're Young"

We hadn't had any Talisker appearances on over 4 years. Then BAM...two in a row!  Hopefully there will be many more from now on.  There have been scotch sightings featuring Ben Stiller in the past and even a brief sighting with legendary Beastie Boy Ad Rock (aka Adam Horovitz, aka King Ad Whammy, aka Sharp Cheddar) himself, but this is the first time seeing these two friends together in the same film.

The sighting takes place a little over an hour into While We're Young.  I gotta say I loved this film from beginning to end.  Everything just seems to work here.  Each character (like them or not) seemed as relatable as the humor in one way or another.  It's definitely nice to see a film about something other than explosions and cars once in a while.  Call me crazy.  Anyway, check out the clip and click here to grab yourself some sweet (yet salty) Talisker, if you're so inclined.

Long Awaited Talisker Sighting in "Bar Rescue"

It has been more than two years since the last Bar Rescue scotch sighting, which is rather surprising considering it is a show about drinking establishments.  This Talker appearance is from way back in season 3.  Episode 18 entitled "A Bar Full of Bull" features a clip of Peter O'Connor (Diageo's master or whiskey) showing the bar's staff how to make a Bloody Mary with Talisker.

The Talisker sightings on this site have been few and far between.  Hopefully we won't have to wait 4 years for the next one to come along.  Click here to pick up a bottle for yourself in the meantime

Every Johnnie Walker Blue Label Sighting in "True Detective" Season 2

Here's a 7 minute supercut of every Johnnie Walker Blue Label appearance from season 2 of the HBO series True Detective. The video was originally 15 minutes long but once I cut out the long shots of people staring at each other and not talking, it became 5 minutes shorter.  Then I managed to shave off another 3 minutes by removing most of the overhead shots of bridges, freeways, and off-ramps.  After that all I was basically left with was people arguing while drinking Johnnie Blue.

Let's hope season 3 has many many more scenes of people mumbling and whispering or having no emotional reaction to something horrific happening right in front of them.  Maybe they could cut the dialogue down to 6 or 7 lines per episode and have a lot more sub-plots involving paperwork and real estate contracts.  Fingers crossed.

Samuel L. Jackson Sips 1962 Dalmore in "Kingsman: The Secret Service"

I never thought I'd see Luke Skywalker and Mace Windu in the same scene, yet here it is.  It's great to see a movie starring both Mark Hamill and Samuel L. Jackson, but I'm even more excited about the $137,000 1962 Dalmore which shows up at around the 6:30 mark.  Check out the clip above.  This is also the first Dalmore sighting in four years.  The last one was from the movie Malice.

Normally I would add a link to Master of Malt so you could purchase your own bottle.  Somehow I think that would be pointless in this particular case so here's the link to buy some more reasonably priced Dalmore expressions:
