And the Last Scotch Ever to Appear on "Mad Men" is.......

I wish I could say this sighting was was particularly interesting.  I wish I could say this scene featured a very rare or sought after brand of scotch. I wish I could tell you Andy fought the good fight and the sisters let him be.

Alas, the final scotch sighting from AMC's Mad Men is pretty uneventful.  I actually had to edit two scenes together (out of chronological order) in order for you to be able to see the actual bottle.  Around 18 minutes into episode 12 of season 7, Joan (Christina Hendricks) is given a glass of scotch poured from an indiscernible bottle.  Later on, near the end of the episode, Joan meets with Roger Sterling (John Slattery) in her office.  This is when we can clearly see that the bottle on her table is none other than The Glenlivet.  This is one of many Glenlivet appearances throughout the 7 seasons of Mad Men.  Hope you enjoyed it as little as I did.

Nick Offerman Drinks Lagavulin in Front of a Fireplace for 45 Minutes

Nick Offerman slowly drinks some Lagavulin 16 in front of a cozy fireplace for 45 minutes of silent, uninterrupted greatness in a "Yule Log" video by "My Tales of Whisky", a collaborative YouTube channel by Diageo and Offerman.

And if you really wanna dive down the rabbit hole, here are the five Lagavulin sightings from Parks & Recreation featuring Offerman.  Number 5 is not to be missed.
