As Samizdata correctly observes, it's whisky up here and not whiskey which is the Irish and American spelling. I have been an avid student of whisky ever since the tragic occasion when I went on a school outing to the Johnnie Walker distillery. At the end of the tour, the teachers (no pun intended) were given large drams but we pupils had to make do with ice-cream!
