captain haddock

Portrait via TintinMovie.

Haddock was half the joy of reading Tintin as a kid. Swearing (Bandit! Nitwit! Vegetarian!), whisky drinking, and pipe smoking. In other words, Pops...

Loch Lomond, used as prop whisky in the Tintin novels is an actual distillery (the name was made up by Herge at the time, nor was the current distillery inspired by Herge, just chance.) Love the omnipresent nautical sweater as well.
