      Re: I think you'll find that's Etymology

      The word whisky (or whiskey) is an anglicisation of the Gaelic word uisce|uisge meaning water. Distilled alcohol was known to the medieval Latins as aqua vitae = "water of life"; and as aqua fortis = "strong water". This was translated to Gaelic as Irish: uisce beatha and Scottish Gaelic: uisge beatha = "lively water" or "water of life". Early forms of the word in English included uskebeaghe (1581), usquebaugh (1610), usquebath (1621), usquebae (1715).[2]

      For the same reason

      I need empathy, a social conscience and an adherence to a self defined moral code in order not to rip off, abuse and generally treat my clients like shit.

    That sounds like one of those 'Personal' Ads from the days when they could be no more explicit than innuendo

    Review mainly leads to whiskey doubles all round

    This has to be the laziest, condescending excuse for journalism I've seen all year. Sterotyping? Was that not left in the 1950's?
