    I'm 18 and I hate alcohol and always have. I don't drink alcohol but I never really started.

    Good, as alcohol can be bad for you

    I've never thought alcohol tastes disgusting. My dad used to let me have a sip of his pints when I was about five, tasted amazing.

    I've never liked spirits though, lager, ale and some wine is OK.

    I'm 27 and still think alcohol tastes disgusting.. The only drinks I can have for the simple enjoyment of drinking them are cider, sweet cocktails or a small bit of prosecco. Anything else is a chore to get down, not that it really stops me!*

    Captain Morgan's Spiced rum + coke :yy:

    Or Sailor Jerry's, but they changed the recipe a while back and although it still tastes nice, it's not as vanilla-y as it used to be... or is it more vanilla-y? I can't remember :holmes:
    Alright, I'll note them and give 'em a try at some point.

    Never drunk Poteen or Everclear, huh? You won't have any tastebuds left after drinking either of them

    To imply that all spirits have the same taste is disingenuous; even the same spirits have different tastes if you know what you're looking for (take whiskey, for example. There's whiskey, then there's bourbon, scotch, and some people even differentiate between whiskey and whisky [though I'm relatively sure that whisky is scotch, whereas whiskey is a catch-all term for... well, whiskey]. And all of the above taste different to gin which tastes different to rum which tastes different to vodka).

    You say you only drink beer... do you mean lager or ale? Or even stout or bitters?
    Again, they've all got different tastes. I used to be all about the lager, but after having been exposed to ale I just can't go back to lager... it tastes cheap and chemically in comparison to ale.
    Lager is disgusting, much prefer exploring all the range of ales and occasional stout wherever I go. But cider tops the list, always loved it (not the crap you see advertised on TV) and love exploring the variety across the country. Occasional gin, bourbon, scotch and single malts etc. but they get expensive very quickly. Same with absinthe. Not really a fan of vodka and rum, unless it's so chilled or in a cocktail/flavoured that I can't tell anyway.

    I started liking it once I started drinking socially, probably about 15

    I don't think it is. If the five year old is drinking pints or shots then yeh.

    What?
    Men have been drinking wine since the discovery of wine.
    Wine collectors are mostly men

    It still tastes like ****. But I'll down straight vodka anyway since it does the job.
