As Ste says, each to their own, but I've never understood how people can drink Whisky and the like. Some of the circles I move in nowadays, it's almost an expectation of you to appreciate a fine whisky; but I just can't take to it, makes me want to throw up even thinking about it.
Funnily enough, I drank a few bottles of it as a kid (15 or so) and it wasn't very nice then, but just seems so awful nowadays.
I guess it's a bit like hot and spicy foods, I hate them too in general, but for some people, the hotter, the better. My dad and grandad (and uncles etc) can all appreciate (and will happily pay through the nose) for a fine whisky, maybe I'm the missing link between whisky loves and whisky haters lol.
The worst drink ever (aside from the tequila and chilli shots, both of which have bad experiences attached to em lol) has to be bombay sapphire gin; I swear that stuff is paint stripper!!
