Whisky versus Whiskey

Eric Masimov at The New York Times has written a great article about using whisky or whiskey when writing.

But clearly, definitively, and somewhat aggressively, people from Scotland and many fans of Scotch have informed me of their preference for whisky over whiskey, judging by the flood of comments and emails I received yesterday.

Just to add a bit of Swedish flavor (I’m from Sweden), here we mostly write Whisky so I think it’s only in USA and Ireland they use Whiskey. At I have written Whisky most of the time. When writing about Irish and American whiskey I of would add the e. Hopefully that will do!
