Hope you recover quickly Paul. I looked this up by the way so you know what to ask for in the shop:
"The spelling of whisky, or whiskey, differs geographically. As a rule, American and Irish prefer ‘whiskey’ and the Scots, Canadians and the rest of the world’s single malt makers prefer ‘whisky’. This originated during the 19th century. For in around 1870, Scotch whisky was of very low quality, much of it being distilled poorly in Coffey stills. For exportation to America, the Irish distillers wanted to differentiate their product from the poorer Scotch whisky, thus they added the ‘e’ to mark the crucial distinction. Today, Scotch whisky has become one of the world’s greatest spirits, but the spelling still differs. On mass, Americans still spell their spirit with an ‘e’, though legally it is spelt ‘whisky’. A few distillers, Maker’s Mark and George Dickel for example, prefer the Scottish spelling, this is to be attributed to their Scottish ancestry."
Dunno what the spelling is in Yorkshire though...
I love being right. If only it happened more often...

Single malt scotch is spelled without the "e". Only whisky distilled in Scotland can be called "scotch", be it single malt or blended. all other distilled spirits is spelled "whiskey". (commonly called 'rotgut"). i generally drink single malt, of which i have 12 different brands in my cabinet at any one time.

Don't drink and ride, please.

"Don't drink and ride, please."
That is quite right because you tend to spill it...

Got up this morning, had a shower, put on my bike gear and went for a ride. That usually blows the cobwebs off and makes me feel a bit better. Fail in two counts today.
1. I didn't call and buy a bottle of whisky whilst I was out.
2. I still feel like poo so I'm off back to bed.
