Butterscotch

Alas, my friends, you will not find scotch in butterscotch.  Scotch the drink has a completely different etymological root than the scotch in butterscotch.  Scotch the drink gets its name from Scotland and is their version of whiskey.  Scotch from butterscotch means to score or to mark and comes from the practice of marking the butterscotch to break it apart into bite sized candies later.
