The spelling of “whisky” without the ‘e’ is used for whiskys produced solely in Scotland.  It has been said that it is spelled without the “e” because the Scots believe that the extra letter wastes perfectly good drinking time.

The rest of the whiskey producers in the world use the spelling of “whiskey” with the “e”.   Starting with the Irish and moving to the whiskey producers in the U.S, the word “whiskey” is used.
