Canadina Whiskies Filter: where to start?

I am a bourbon-drinking girl living in Toronto. I'd like to get to know Canada by way of its mash-- what are some great Canadian whiskies? Nothing too expensive- say, around or under $50 for a 750ml bottle? I like smooth whiskies with complex flavors that are not too peaty.

That's a lot of soda bread...

By mistake my company has booked me double baggage allowance for my flight to Dublin for a conference, so I have a capacity of 46kg. I live in London. What kind of heavy yet-hard-to-get in the UK thing should I buy to make the most of this? My only thought was a case of whisky or possibly a very large amount of Guinness. I only have one free morning (Thursday), which is also the day I fly out. Is there anything I'm not thinking of?

I like Islay whisky, what Bourbon might appeal?

My single malt top preference is for fairly tradiitonal peatty Islay malts. I very much enjoy most of the Laphroaig outputs and love the 16 year old Lagavulin - I can take or leave Bruichladdich and have no interest in the trend for super peatty malts. I am looking to expand my tastes into bourbon but have little experience. Given that love of Laphroaig and Lagavulin, what bourbons might most appeal?

Bourbon in Scotland

I'm heading to Scotland in a few months and I'd like to give my host, who's a fan of Scotch (or just whisky, there) a gift of good American Bourbon. My criteria are that it's a very good bourbon, and that it's a bourbon that he couldn't get there in Scotland. I don't know anything about bourbon, though. Want to help me out? [more inside]

"I'll Take Some Tennesee, Please."

Why is Scotch whisky called that, instead of "Scottish whisky"? And how did Scotch, which is (or should be) used as a versatile adjective, become short for the whisky itself? I'd think that'd be similar to calling Tennessee whiskey simply "Tennessee." Just curious. Thanks in advance.

What foods to pair with whiskey?

I'm having a whiskey party tonight. There will be a mix of scotches, bourbons, and other whiskeys, single-malt and blended. It will not be a dinner party but I'd like to provide some hors d'oeuvres and possibly desserts. I've heard sushi is good with whiskey so I thought lox might work, and this Honey and Whiskey ice cream looks good, but does anyone have any other ideas?
