  • As those genii at the Real Academia Española inform us, this frightening mess of a word is nothing more than

    1. m. Licor alcohólico que se obtiene del grano de algunas plantas, destilando un compuesto amiláceo en estado de fermentación.

    (Del ingl. whisky, y este del gaélico uisce beatha, agua de vida).

    I guess somebody was really reluctant to sully the purity of the Castilian language by accepting the spelling "whisky", or even its version irlandés, "whiskey". They'd rather you used this appalling hodgepodge of letters instead.
