Just the other night I rented the easily forgettable movie Constantine staring actor Keanu Reeves (Matrix). So I am watching the scene where the heroine tracks down our hero to his apartment. He is drinking the last of a bottle of red wine when she nocks. He invites her in and then goes and grabs another bottle (which he doesn't offer to her by the way).
It is a bottle of Ardbeg TEN !!!
What is even more amusing (then how dorky it was of me to notice) is that the liquid that he pours is WAY too dark to be Ardbeg (our ever so pale Isla malt). Yet, the label is unmistakable.
I will leave you with another sighting.
In the movie 28 Days Later our group of heroes stop at an abandoned grocery store to search for food. While there the character played by the Irish actor Brendan Gleeson gives a little lesson on picking out Whisky. The movie never shows the bottle, but you do see him pick up several dark green boxes with the delightful gold-lion-crest symbol of Lagavulin on its top.
Any other random sighting you care to share?
(I in no way encourage people to see these movies. But if you must, at least enjoy these minuscule details as only the whisky obsessed can)
