The First Scotch Sighting From NBC's 'Community'

There have been a few Glencallan sighting throught the 5 seasons of Community but they were so brief or fuzzy that I didn't bother posting them.  This one from season 5, episode 5 was pretty in-your-face and therefore worthy of mentioning.  The (rather cool Macallan-ish looking) box shows up about 16 minutes into the episode.

Looks like this is officially the last episode featuring Troy (aka Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino) as he announced last year that he was leaving.  Here's a quick article from TV Line about his reason(s) for leaving.  He'll definitely be missed.  Luckily I have a new Gambino album to keep me going for a while.

Check out the video below and yes, I realize that Glencallan is fake.

A Brief Flash of Bastille French Whiskey in 'The Following'

Bastille!  Here's a whisky I've been trying to get my hands on for quite some time.  I wish I could tell you that I've tried it and loved it but, for now, we'll both have to take the word of the countless others who've given this blend a rave review.  That's the downside of living in Ontario, Canada.  Government controlled alcohol sales often equals depressingly limited distribution.

Speaking of things I wish I'd had a chance to enjoy...The Following is a show I've been meaning to get into since it debuted last year.  Even my mom has been scolding me for not watching it yet.  Perhaps this fleeting glimpse of Bastille in episode 5 from this season is a sign.

Thanks to William Ricker for sending me this hot tip via Twitter.  Keep 'em coming, folks.

The Fourth Glen McKenna Sighting from "How I Met Your Mother"

Holy crap!  Only 4 episodes left!  I honestly didn't thnk there'd be another Glen McKenna sighting before the end of the series, but here we are.  Season 9, episode 20.  Big thanks to my man Matthew Bear for leaving this tip for me in the comments section.  This is actually the 4th Glen Mackenna sighting from How I Met Your Mother. You can check out the others here, here, and here.  It's a little hard to read the age statement on the bottle (not that it matters considering it doesn't exist anyway) but I'm 99% sure it said 35 years when I watched it on the my big screen.

Check out the clip and some pics below.  I've been told there are other Glen McKenna appearances throughout the series but I've yet to spot them.  Please let me know if you have any luck.

A Brief Macallan Sighting From HBO's True Detective

As promised, here's the quick shot of Macallan 12 from episode 7 of True Detective.  I've bribed enough law enforcement types in my time to know that one can never go wrong with this bottle.  Though depending on the severity of the favor you're asking, you might want to spring for the 18.  It is almost time for the show to start so I gotta run soon.  Be sure to check out the clip which is from around the 30 minute mark in last week's episode titled "After You've Gone".

Johnnie Walker Black Label Spotted in True Detective

Unfortunately, the best show on TV is about to come to an end.  The finale of HBO's True Detective is just 24 short hours away.  Hopefully all of these loose ends swirling around in my head will be tied up and I won't slip into madness attempting to figure out this series.  There have been two scotch sightings so far.  This scene featuring the Black Label took place just over 11 minutes into episode 4.  I'll post the next one tomorrow.  It was tough to catch.  Let me know in the comments if you spotted it.

No word yet on whether True Detective has been renewed for a second season.  In the meantime I guess we're doomed to keep watching these 8 episodes over and over and over forever...because time is a flat circle.

P.S.  Lots of nudity in this clip.  Sorry.

Matthew McConaughey Sips Black Label in "Dallas Buyers Club"

Just in time for the Oscars, here's the Johnnie Walker Black label appearance from the 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club starring Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto.  My prediction is that both of these fine gents will win the academy award for best actor and best supporting actor respectively, and, as you probably know, my Oscar predictions are never wrong.

It is always great to see a scene featuring McConaughey, considering his 2011 film The Lincoln Lawyer was actually my inspiration for starting this site.  Hard to believe that was 3 years (and nearly 300 sightings) ago.

The Black Label appears at the 1:30:00 mark in the film.  Check out the clip as well as some screenshots and alternate artwork below.  Click here to like us on Facebook.

The Second Glenlivet Appearance From "Ray Donovan"

The Ray Donovan scotch sightings just keep coming.  I promise to switch it up (for a little while) after this.  This clip is technically a two-for-one deal because I tacked on the J&B appearance from later in the episode.  J&B is so ubiquitous in movies and TV shows that I see no point in dedicating an entire post to each appearance.  I barely have enough time in my life to bring y'all the premium/rare malts.  Speaking of which; check out this (somewhat lengthy) scene from episode 7 in which Ray catches up with an old pal over a bottle of 12 year old Glenlivet.
