I caught the tail end of some talking heads mentioning it, and they said MJ was a tequila enthusiast.

 

Nice! Thanks for that info.

On the season finale of Homeland, Saul went for a pour in a couple of scenes. I could make out a Blanton's and a Lagavulin on the bar, and it looked like he poured a Talisker.

Watched an oldie on cable: Red Dawn.   

Patrick Swayze's character is given a 'flask-style' bottle (pint?) of Jim Beam White Label by Ben Johnson's benevolent old fogey character; "to help keep the youngsters warm" up in woods as they evade the Cubans and Russians, and survive the early stages of WWIII.

Watching Takashi Miike's 2004 movie 'Agitator', some poor delivery driver just got initiated into the gang with some Wild Turkey... at least they used a good bourbon I suppose.

I watched John Wayne in The Green Berets over the Memorial Day weekend. There are a couple of scenes in the film featuring Jim Beam. 
 

FWIW, the first time I saw this movie was in a theater when it was first released. It just so happens my mother and I were in Savannah Georgia/Hunter Army Airfield visiting my brother before he headed out for his second tour of duty in Vietnam. In the scene when the relief team flew In by helicopters to the base camp to try and help save the day, the cheers from all the helicopter pilots In the base theater nearly blew the doors off the place.

Star Trek: Picard, S1 Ep5 "Stardust City Rag" - Seven of Nine has a "bourbon, straight up" when Picard offers her "tea, glass of wine?" in his holo-den on the La Sirena.  Poured in a rocks glass from a large square decanter and downed in a closeup - at least she didn't shoot it back.  She asks for another once Picard gets her attention with his "mission".

 

I was binge watching Picard on CBS All Access and was feeling pretty "meh..." about it until 7o9 showed up at the end of Ep4.  Once again Jeri Ryan saves a dull, plodding, mediocre Star Trek series - Voyager improved exponentially once she was added to the cast.  Where's a Homer Simpson drool gif when ya need one...  JR/7o9 still has it, Picard best not toss her aside next season.

 

Also can't forget the classic Dickel bottles used for Saurian brandy on The Original Series and DS9.

Saw what just had to be a bottle of J. W. Dant in the season-opening episode of 'Yellowstone'.   John Dutton's daughter Beth buys it earlier, and eventually presents the bottle, a pour (down her breasts), along with herself to the top hand and right-hand-man on the old ranch house porch in the closing scenes.

She says something like "Oops, spilled it.   I'll pour you you a new one."   He passes on a new pour saying; something like "I'll take that one."   Cool stuff!

Has become a new  binge obsession for us.  Just finished season 2 last night.  Looking forward to season 3.  Betheny sure is one crazy woman.

The other night we watched Kirk Douglas in Lonely Are The Brave yet again. I’ve said it before, I think it’s his  best performance. Anyway, just before the bar fight scene, he buys a bottle of booze and a beer. I honestly can’t tell for sure, but it looks like the booze may be a bottle of Old Charter.  Anyone???

First: apologies for the thread drift...

My favorite Kirk Douglas movie?  Seven Days in May       He and Burt Lancaster were top of their games, and the support cast were all very sharp.

I’ll keep tumbling off topic...😁. Never a Douglas fan, but The Final Countdown in which he starred, is one of the most entertaining and Damn coolest movies I’ve ever seen.
