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.

A Fake Glenlivet for a Modern Family

As promised, heres the 2nd sighting of GlenKnolls or GlenKnobbs or whatever the hell it's called.  I guess it's the new Glencallan.  This scene is from season 6 episode 17 of Modern Family.  

Lot's more clips to come.

Fake Glenlivet in "The People V. OJ Simpson"

I know I know.  It's been a while.  Honestly, I haven't posted a scotch sighting in so long that I'd literally forgotten how.  I stared at the html code for embedding this clip for about 5 minutes before figuring out what to do with it.  

It'll be a slow ramp up for the time being, but the site will be firing on all cylinders soon enough.  There is a huge backlog of clips and I'm slowly getting to all the great sightings y'all have been sending me over the last 4 or 5 months.

The clip above features a bottle of what appears to be The GlenKnolls, a scotch which doesn't actually exist and, up until now, had never been featured on this site.  Oddly enough, the exact same phoney brand appears in the very next sighting from a clip of a different show which someone sent me the following day.  I'll be featuring it in tomorrow's post.
