Don't Trust the Whisky in Apartment 23

This might not be an official scotch sighting but I think we can let it slide for two reasons.  The first being the fact that June (Dreama Walker) believes she is ordering an expensive whisky, and the second reason is because I have a crush on Krysten Ritter.  There, I said it.

The clip below is from the 6th episode of season 2 entitled "It's Just Sex..." and features June lying to a bartender about being an NYC whisky inspector in an attempt to score some free booze.  My girlfriend recently turned me on to this show and I have to say, it's pretty hilarious and very well written.  James Van Der Beek playing an exaggerated version of himself is reason enough to check it out.

Glenlivet Spotted in "Homeland"

There are two kinds of people in the world.  The ones who are watching Homeland and the ones who are sick of people asking them if they are watching Homeland.  I recently transitioned from being the former to being the latter.  Now I'm hooked on two Showtime serieseseses.  The other one being Dexter, of course.

The very brief Glenlivet appearance takes place about 19 minutes into the second episode from season one entitled "Grace".  I had to enlarge a few screenshots from the episode in order to confirm that it was, in fact, a Glenlivet bottle.  Hopefully there will be more sightings to come throughout the show.

Seeking a Balvenie for The End of the World

Now here's something you don't see every day.  If you look closely at the clip below you might spot a rather obvious continuity error.  There is a Balvenie sighting about eight minutes into the 2012 film Seeking a Friend for the End of the World starring Steve Carell and Keira Knightley.  In this scene, Dodge (Carell) visits his friend Warren (played by Rob Corddry) who pours two glasses of Balvenie.  At the 1:29 mark in the clip you can clearly see that the Balvenie has been switched with a taller, nondescript bottle.  A moment later the Balvenie returns.  How does this kind of thing manage to make the final cut in a major Hollywood movie?  Regardless, it's always great to see The Balvenie pop up on the big screen.  This was the first sighting in over a year.
