For the record (which has a scratch, causing the stylus to skip thereby
creating a loop <-- RELEVANCE ;->), in Ireland and, I believe, the U.S.,
it's "whiskey," and in Scotland, here in Canada, and maybe a few other
places, it's "whisky."

My knowledge, though, ain't exactly encyclopaedic, so don't carve that in
stone. It's just the way I've always understood it to be. Like it really
