Put an end to strong drink (6)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

scotch

Here is my best explanation:

This clue is a double definition.

'put an end to' is the first definition.

(I've seen this before)

'strong drink' is the second definition.

(Scotch is an example)

This clue was last seen in The Times

(Other definitions for scotch that I've seen before include "Stop", "Type of egg", "kill?", "A drink; crush", "dish", "strong drink!", "Put a stop to - whisky", "A short", "hard liquor" and "Kind of whisky spelt thus".)
