Don't know about the states, but in the UK it's Irish Whiskey and Scottish Whisky. Which makes the Lizzy record title using Whisky (in UK) at odds with the band's origins.

They couldn't stand that traditional music and only started playing it as a pisstake. I wonder if the lack of "e" in the Lizzy version was to differentiate from the folkie stuff that had come before, Americanising.

I'm guessing that that reflects a greater presence of Irish immigrants in the US, while Canada was historically Scottish.

Spectacularly ill-conceived alright. I kinda like the notion that we were plucky enough to actually invade someone, but seemed a tad ambitious. Newfoundland might have been the more prudent choice.
