At any rate, I defer to the saying, "Scotch refers to whiskey and eggs."
My own thinking is that they were referred to as scotch but when whisky became very commercialized they took on the scots name to show the difference.

Re Scotch, Scots,Scotch-Irish or Scots-Irish I came across this wee book in a church hall sale. It was printed in Scotland. There is no date given in it but I reckon the 1930s

Maybe this is off-topic, but don't forget the Highlanders, the first of whom immigrated to Savanah and Darien, GA.
