And are "Scotch" and "whisky" words for exactly the same beverage? (like those smoked and non-smoked varieties, for example?)

Thank you!
No they are not synonymns. Scotch is whiskey made in Scotland. There's Irish whiskey, Canadian whiskey, American whiskey. Whiskey is a tawny distilled liquor made from grain and aged in barrels. I honestly don't know the correct spelling of the word. It may be whisky.
