Actually, one of my favorite bourbons, Makers Mark, spells it "bourbon whisky". Our family moved to Ireland, so that my husband could do some training there, and we brought a bottle of Makers to his new boss. The first thing the Irishman noted was the Scottish spelling! Bourbons, the biscuits, confused us for the longest time. I finally gave in and tried one, just to see how horrid it would be, and was rather pleasantly surprised to find that it was simply a chocolate sandwich cookie, with no alcoholic taste! I love your review responses nearly as much as your stories; you should know. :)

As always, I love it when you write about Lavender and Mark! I'm glad that he was reasonable. (You do know, though, don't you, that Bourbon is a very specific kind of whiskey? American's don't refer to all whiskey as bourbon, just the stuff we distill with a grain mix of at least 51% corn, and a few other stipulations. The best is distilled in Kentucky!)
Thanks for the morning read!
Author's Response: Thanks for the review. A Mark/Lavender story that isn't chapterd, and isn't about 12,000 words long! How did that happen? Mark is always much too reasonable. You spell whiskey with an "e" which signifies that it's Iris, rather than Scotch Whisky. Yes, I know what bourbon is, and that it's a special sort of whisky, or a chocolate biscuit! -N-
