Maker's Mark spells it "whisky" on their label. It is neither Scotch nor Canadian. I'm just sayin'.

Why not just use the universal spelling--"p-i-s-s-w-a-t-e-r"?

Never have fully understood the language I speak.  So, is the difference in these two words similar to "reed, read", "read, red", "blue, blew", I give up.

IMHO, it's much more akin to the difference between "flavor" and "flavour"

One of the commenters makes the point that it's not a case of a word spelled (spelt?) differently.  There's an actual difference between whisky and whiskey -- they describe different things.
