What's the difference?
I think the "e" is Irish.
Whisky is better than whiskey.
Who cares? I drink bourbon.
Bulleit calls their rye "whiskey." I call it great.
Without the e is scotch whisky, everything else is (irish/canadian/bourbon/etc) whiskey.
Just drink it...
Maker's Mark is one fine bourbon.
Notice the label:
I agree Maker's Mark is a nice bourbon but it really should be spelled with the e. It used to be whisky was scotch and whiskey was irish but then other people started making whiskey like the Americans and Canadians we used the Irish spelling.
However they're pronounced the same and it's really only important if you're Scottish and somebody refers to your whisky as whiskey. Nobody makes that mistake any more because the Scotch have kilt the transgressors.
Less thinky more drinky.
"ey" is more European, "y" is more American.
Too much whiskey or whisky.....
I've tried Makers Mark... not impressed.
Yup..that's the "spirit".
I think they were just being old-timey about it. Its probably changed over the years.
and I went thru a pint of it this weekend twen running into an old acquaintaince and some beach time.
MAN does it go good with diet 7-up and lots of ice, when you're on a sunny beach!
I think that you could say moreso than not that alcohol,
especially whisky is an acquired taste. I don't drink the
stuff anymore and I have never tasted Maker's Mark.
Everyone is an individual and taste varies accordingly.
Just my 2 cents.
if it were spelled wiskee, if I liked it, I'd drink it
Countries that have E’s in their names (UnitEd StatEs and IrEland) tend to spell it whiskEy (plural whiskeys).
Countries without E’s in their names (Canada, Scotland, and Japan) spell it whisky (plural whiskies).
