Whisky or Whiskey?

Recommended Posts

Can't decide on my next spirits purchase. What do you think, should I buy whisky or whiskey? I'm kinda leaning toward whisky.

BTW, this is neat, with maybe a drop or two of water. None of that mixing crap. I want to taste something interesting.

Have any favorites?

Ok,what the difference between whisky and whiskey besides the spelling???



Denotes a style/flavor/heritage in a broad sense. Whisky in general is either made in Scotland or the founders of the company were descended of Scottish ancestry and their product reflects that tradition and flavor. Scotch whisky is exclusively made in Scotland, but there it's simply called whisky. (Much like "real" champaign comes from the Champaign region of France.)

Americans have a similar thing going on with bourbon and Tennessee whiskey.

I find Oban 14 to be a great, middle of the road, not too expensive whisky.

And, if you're going to call it "real", at least call it "Champagne" ;)

I see now *this* is what you are doing. ;^)

Learned recently that a nice hot toddy is fantastic for colds and sore throats. Don't know if what was mixed for me had whisky or whiskey, but it was sure good!

Happy researching! :^)

Aye, laddie.

Champagne is in France (Europe) - Champaign is in Illinois (most definitely not Europe).

Faster horses, younger women, older whiskey, more money.

Why do they call it "Tourist Season" if we can't shoot them?

I'll have to remember that the next time I order a drink in Perris. ;)
