Paul enlightened me on the subtlety of the spellings some time back so I use the correct one now. You don't want a Scott breathing down your neckIf it's Scotch then it isn't Whiskey, it's Whisky. We put Whiskey in our cooking sauces. We drink Whisky.
Indeed. I do find a 16 year-old Bushmills is extremely tasty, but that is whiskey. But there is so much to discover in Scotland, the Distiller Editions of some places are excellent too. Lagavulin is one that jumps to mind. And that is whisky. ;-)
As for me I prefer the Island Whiskys - love the smoky taste...
