Heading to the Southern USA in pursuit of distilleries to visit, it's easy to get confused. And that's before you've even had a drink. American bourbon and whiskey are different.

And in the USA they do spell it whiskey except for the people who spell it whisky.

I'm sure you've heard that a lot of things do, but this brown drink is high in anti-oxidants which help to assist in containing the growth of cancerous cells.

To some, a cocktail is something that comes in a particular glass - notably the 'V' shaped martini glass.

Most see it as a mixed alcoholic drink though - but usually in a 'fancy' sense.

How Important Is Our Sense of Taste?

The purpose of taste, as I find out through the course of the evening, is more than to just eating pleasurable (normally). It is also there to create a desire in us for the foods that we need, and to help us single out just what those foods are. The five tastes - sweet, salt, sour, bitter and umami - all signify different things.

Burns Night is an occasion for us to not only celebrate the life of our favourite son, Robert Burns, but an opportunity to acknowledge, embrace and enjoy all things Scottish. For me, it can only be one thing: whisky.

On the plane home I realise: Reykjavík is easier to access from London than the North of our own country, in terms of time and money. But from there, with a little money and imagination, you can enter an other world, a landscape from the pages of fairytales.
