Gone Baby Gone / Ardbeg An Oa

Gone Baby Gone / Ardbeg An Oa

For Bob's next Season Five movie, he's chosen director Ben Affleck's 2007 debut Gone Baby Gone. Based on a Dennis Lehane novel, this seedy neo-noir works primarily because of its moral questions, but also because of uniformly excellent performances and Affleck's sense of place in his Boston hometown. It's still his finest work, and he's directed a best Picture winner since this.

Meanwhile, they try the third in a line of four whiskies from Ardbeg, a single-malt scotch distillery known for its extensive use of peat. How will the An Oa, a blend featuring three different finishes, stack up against other peated scotches?
