Whew! And since you're half my size that REALLY makes you the resident lush! JK

Actually I like to buy stuff on sale, whether I need it or not. Explains why I have a ten year old bottle of rum/brandy premixed for toddies ($2 if I remember right).

And Ned, maybe your taste buds still like all the sweet stuff?

I would be a lush if I actually drank it. I had a shot of rum in my eggnog last night! Does that count?

I used to be a lush. Just ask Peter.

Hey you're right about that sweet stuff Bigwill...I still have a weakness for good chocolates...like truffles and anything with g*o*o*d milk chocolate. Southbend chocolate co.- Ghiradelli - Godiva - Lindt and a candy bar called ?Toborone? not sure of the spelling on that one but it is good and almost difficult to get an easy bite due to the triangle shape.

Ken and I and the friend we were living with at the time back in 1997-8 were rather large lushes. Some of the bottles in my liquor cabinet are remnants of those days. Every Friday and Saturday we'd look up recipes for mixed drinks, or make them up on the spot. And then we'd stay up playing computer games until dawn. Crazy days, those were.

>>How many of you guy's can HONESTLY tell me you enjoy the flavor of any alcohol drink?

I'm guessing "all of us". I don't think it's so much that it takes years to "acquire the taste" but rather it takes years to "find what taste you like" rather than the stuff your parents like.

Bad wine, cheap liquor and beers you don't like will always taste bad, even after 25 years of trying to aquire the taste. My father used to let me sample (small samples) different beers and I didn't like any of them. Still don't like them today -- he and I just have different tastes in beer and probably always will. Part of the reason the beer thread rolls along so well is that there is an extraordinary variety of tastes and styles of beer, probably more so than any other food or drink going.

Wines and cognacs are a bit different. If you have a really good wine most people will agree that it is really good although there are still personal tastes (white/red, sweet/dry etc..).

I had a chance to try Remy Napoleon when I was relatively young and suddenly the whole "alcoholic drink" thing started to make sense. It wasn't particularly strong, just incredibly rich and delicious. I find the same with good Burgundy or Shiraz wines -- the alcohol just helps to carry the aroma to your nose and adds to the experience.

Anyways, not here to promote alcoholism or anything, just saying "don't let anyone push you into pretending to like something you don't enjoy, and keep your eyes open for the tastes you do enjoy".

If you just want the buzz almost anything will do (except Johnny Walker Red of course), and you can save a lot of money by not buying the good stuff
