      Thanks for the spellin' lesson ... but

      If WhisKY is the Scots spelling and WhisKEY is the Irish.

      Where does Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey come in ?

      Yrs.,
      L2 :^)
      PS: notice no mention of Almond Sherry!

      Spelling counts, but it does vary by nationality at least in your
      example....
      WhisKY is the Scots spelling
      WhisKEY is the Irish.
      The problem of course is converting The Gaelic into English leaves some room for variation. Same is probably true for Welsh, and I'm sure it was even harder in the old days when quills didn't have Spell Check.
