Love whiskey/bourbon as much as the next person, but a Jack Daniels coffin strikes me as overkill (unless you’re in the founding family I suppose? Still, poor taste… h/t @CalebWilde)
For a show based in rural Louisiana, the folks of HBO’s True Detective sure do not care about any regional products. When it comes down to what whiskey these forlorn cops drown their sorrows in, Jameson is clearly the everyday liquor of choice (evidenced here by both Rust and Marty):
Things get slightly classier (but no deeper in local drink ties) when the main duo celebrates. Johnnie Walker Black seems to satisfy all the cops for an occasion.
Finally, when modern times arrive and bourbon is absolutely prevalent, it’s Macallan that greases the bureaucratic wheels of justice.
Sundance and Glenlivet paired up for a series of short documentaries… about advice and not necessarily whiskey. Nevertheless, no one will complain about some Bryan Cranston or Eric Ripert facetime.

We support the idea of pairing Girl Scout cookies with bourbon as much as anyone, but The Bourbon Review needs to take a moment. Maybe you can find Shortbreads everywhere, but could the pairings get a little less accessible than Pappy?
If DEA lawman Alex Miller wasn’t a clear enough Ghost of Christmas Future for Raylan, he also fancies himself a whiskey drinker. Wild Turkey would’ve been too on the nose, so Maker’s Mark fits in here just fine.
We’ve seen everyone’s favorite fake—Glencallan—show up in this season of Community despite the show’s open love of Macallan. Most of that revolves around Jeff Winger however, and last week the two sipping on a little something were Abed and Prof. Hickey. What’s the beverage of choice when it’s time to bury the hatchet between these two? Well… we could use a little help. Anyone with intel?

Sigh, to be back in San Francisco. Not only is it great weather, food, entertainment, and culture… but they just opened a Wolverine store. And as the initial promotion, you could get a bottle of Elijah Craig with any pair. You win again, SF.
Mila Kunis?!? She like bourbon and is the new official face of Jim Beam, according to AdWeek. Look for some TV ads soon.
