A lovely brown whisky drink from Scotland. Must be distilled to certain standards to be called Scotch. Also certain other things from Scotland are called Scotch (Scotch pies, etc). It's spelt WHISKY not WHISKEY. Irish and American whiskey is spelt WHISKEY whereas Scotch and Canadian whisky is spelt WHISKY. Scotch as a term to refer to people from Scotland is too old school and many Scots find it offensive.
Me and my boy Johhnie Mac drank a bottle of scotch after a night at the bar and were rightly drunk.

An archaic word occasionally mis-used to describe people, places and things from Scotland. This use of 'Scotch' is actively disliked by people from Scotland itself. Scottish or Scots should be used instead, with the exception of a few ingrained words or phrases, most notably in the case of certain food and drink items.
Acceptable: Scotch Broth, Scotch Beef, Scotch (Whisky.)

Not Acceptable: "Hey dude, are you Scotch!? We visited an awesome Scotch castle when we were on vacation!"

Most definitely does not mean 'Scottish' when describing people. It is often used to describe liquor, eggs and beef among other things.

Those who call Scottish people 'Scotch' are often corrected with a polite saying-so, or a "Fuck off, you stupid American bastard!", depending on how much Scotch the Scottish person has recently imbibed.
Stereotypical American - "Hey you're Scotch! Isn't Scotland in England?"

Drunken Scot - "Fuck off, you stupid American bastard!"

There seems to be some international controversy over the definition of the word 'scotch'. Which is quite cool, I suppose - in a way. I'm a Scottish girlie and am sick of being labelled 'Scotch' - as are many Scots. I wouldn't class anyone who called us Scotch as stupid, but it is fucking annoying. SO! Here's a proper dictionary definition. Imagine people having put so much thought into this kind o pechang... Ok - "
