Lagavulin Sighting from "The West Wing"

     It has been nearly six months since we've come across an honest-to-goodness Lagavulin sighting.  Seems like an eternity, doesn't it?  Well the wait is over because the powerful peaty Islay* malt has shown up in an episode from season three of The West Wing entitled "Dead Irish Writers".  It is one of the typically well-written, well-acted scenes one would expect from a series of this caliber.  The scene involving the Lagavulin takes place at the 14:50 mark in the episode.  Check out the video below...

*Please try not to cringe at British Ambassador Lord John Marbury's (Roger Rees) pronunciation of "Islay".
