Educate me - scotch and whiskey and rye (oh my)

yummyinmytummy | Mar 11, 200810:37 AM     27

I am soooo confused. Is Scotch also known and whisky? I thought they were two different liquors. This morning I was cleaning my bar and I noticed that my Chivas bottle says scotch whiskey. So is Chivas Scotch or Whiskey? And what is Rye? A form of whiskey? Scotch?

I have had Scotch on a few occasions and really liked it...it was a bit sweet on my toungue and I would like to drink more of it, but was it scotch, whiskey or rye.

Please help me.
