It's just regional differences in the English language. Canadian whisky is spelled so because of the high number of Scottish immigrants in our past; therefore, I would suspect that Bourbon is a whiskey because of the number of Irish immigrants to the US.
So there is no right way: I think we should just mind the spelling when we refer to the country it came from.
Jim Murray has a section on whisky or whiskey near the front of his book which suggests that the usage of the two spellings is more interchangable than most folks think.
No matter...my point about the U.S. remains valid.
