http://www.thekitchn.com/whiskey-vs-whisky-whats-the-di-100476 In TrekLit, several characters over the years have enjoyed a good drink at times. One of them being 'whiskey'. Now, I know that most TrekLit authors are American, and that American whiskeys are usually spelled with an 'e' in it. However, the Scots don't. The proper spelling for a Scottish whisky, wether a single malt or a blend, is always whisky. The Irish, however, us the spelling whiskey. Always. I believe it's only the US whiskeys that can differ between with our without the 'e'. Is this a really meaningfull post considering TrekLit? No. But, as a man who had (at one point) over 60 different single malts in his collection, it can sometimes bug me slightly when the authors choose to spell a Scottish whisky as whiskey. Hell, in Scotland, no one even calls it scotch. It is not my intention to come acros as a smart-ass, but as someone who is a great lover of a well made single malt, perhaps I can incourage the authors of TrekLit to keep a little eye on it. Again, not intended in away as an insult to the authors.
