    Whiskey is a general term. Scotch is a specific type of whiskey. It should be made in Scotland, but some distillers have produced whiskeys and labeled them "scotch" though they aren't made in Scotland, but rather in the Scottish style.

    Other types of whiskey can include:

    Bourbon (supposed to be from Bourbon county, Kentucky i.e. Jim Beam)

    Sourmash (such as Jack Daniels)

    Rye (Rock and Rye)

    Canadian (Crown Royal, Seagrams VO, Canadian Club)

    American (Seagrams 7)

    Irish (Jamesons)

    Blended (can be a combination of different grains, whiskey types, etc)

    Scotch whisky is whisky made in Scotland. In the English-speaking world, it is often referred to as "Scotch", except in Scotland, where the term whisky is most often sufficient.

    All Scotch is whisky, but only whisky made in Scotland is Scotch.

    Scotch is a whiskey, but not all whiskeys are Scotch. I love Bourbon, but if I was laid out in my coffin and someone poured a shot of scotch down my throat, I would come back to life just long enough to puke. Scotch is made from barley, Rye whiskey from rye and Bourbon is made from corn.
