    Well, he did previously use one shot of it to (apparently) knock out a hooker. Maybe I missed something while I was concentrating on the whisky bottle, but at face value... hard to imagine a shot of 80 proof juice putting a 'pro' to sleep.

    I sure know Lynyrd Skynyrd sang about Old Grand Dad in there song "Whiskey Rock n' Roller", but I guess I read the Bond thing a while ago, somewhere in the net!

    Bond also was pulling on a pint of I.W. Harper in another book.

    Spent part of Groundhog Day watching Bill Murray in "Groundhog's Day". There is a scene where Murray is in the B&B living room in his pj's with other guests watching "Jeapordy". He answers a question before Trebek gets 2 words of the clue out, then reaches over and takes a swig from a fifth of Beam Black.

    Fairly certain I've seen Raylan have a few pours of Ancient Ancient Age this season on Justified.

    Is that what that mystery bottle is? I couldn't quite ID it.

    Yep, that is what he's been pouring lately. Recognized the bottle a couple of weeks ago and thought about posting, but held off. Good observation!! Love AAA 10 yr!

    The brown liquor appears again, in I believe what is episode 8 of House of Cards, as Kevin Spacey and three old chums from his military college days (the imaginatively named "The Sentinel"), already drunk, proceed to down two bottles of Maker's Mark that they purloin from the bar at closing time.

    Re: Bourbon in the Movies

    Just finished watching "Grownups", and noticed a scene where David Spade's drunken character is drining "Old Crow" from the bottle.

    BTW, here's is Wiki's report of it's Critical Reception:

    The film was heavily panned by critics; review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes reports that 9% of critics have given the film a positive review based on 161 reviews, with an average score of 3.3/10, and its consensus states that "Grown Ups' cast of comedy vets is amiable, but they're let up by poor direction and the scattershot, lowbrow humor of a stunted script."[7] Metacritic awarded the film an average score of 30 out of 100 based on 32 reviews.[8] Rob Schneider was nominated for a Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actor.


    To which I say:

    I don't give a sh!$. I laughed my arse off several times during the movie. It's one of those spastic, juvenile, sometimes tacky comedies in the vein of "Meatballs", Caddyshack, etc. that is just funny while drinking some beer and whiskey on a lazy Sunday afternoon. Yep, sometimes "...scattershot, lowbrow humor..." is just what I'm looking for.

    Salma Hayek in a bathing suit is always a good addition, as well...

    I caught the tail end of "The Punisher" the other day. At the end, when Frank Castle was about to end it all, there was a glass and a bottle of WT on the table beside him.
