OK, I’m curious is to how Welsh acquired that ch-sound at the beginning.

It's not so far from the Scottish pronunciation with an aspirated "wh"

The guy who coined it had a really bad head cold that day.

I'm Welsh and never called it chwisgi. Never heard anyone else call it that either.

I know people in Cardiganshire who call it that. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Welsh_whisky
