Can You Remember the Scotch Sighting in Christopher Nolan's "Memento"?

I thought for years that this was a typical bottle of J&B and had been putting off posting the clip for quite some time. Upon closer examination it appears that this is actually a fake label which reads "L&D". Not sure if those letters have any significance. Guy Pierce's character is named Lenny but perhaps I'm reading too much into this.

Here's a couple of other sightings from Christopher Nolan films:  

Highland Park and Black Grouse Spotted in "Inception"
Clyburn Sighting From "The Dark Knight"

Another Balvenie Spotted in "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

An honest to goodness Balvenie sighting doesn't come along too often. So when we spotted the first bottle back in the final episode of season 3 we kept our eyes peeled for another sighting. The clip from season 4 episode 7 entitled "Deals With Our Devils" was so quick that it was nearly impossible to catch. There is a (somewhat) hi-def screenshot below.

Glencallan Spotted in "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

Hakushu Bottle in "Agents of "S.H.I.E.L.D."

The Haig Sighting From "Agents of  S.H.I.E.L.D."

There is a strong possibility that this is actually the same bottle of 40 year old Balvenie from the previous sighting. The same character is drinking it. Guess we'll never know for sure. Also, superheroes and TV shows aren't real.

The SIXTH Scotch Sighting From "How I Met Your Mother"

Yeah that's right. There was another fake scotch in HIMYM and this one is even rarererer. The clip above is from season 7 episode 24 entitled "The Stinson Missle Crisis" and features Robin (Cobie Smulders) drinking the mystery malt known as The Stafford Twin Wood. This bottle has shown up in both Californication and Ray Donovan

You were probably hoping for another Glen McKenna, but until someone tells us which episode it appeared in, we'll all just have to wait and hope and pray that it pops up eventually. Either that or we could carry on with our lives because finding whisky appearances in movies and TV shows isn't really important in the big picture. What with everything going on in the world and whatnot and so on and so forth.
