I've never regretted not being a Oeniphile- but I feel I've missed out not developing a taste for Scotch. Alas alack...I'm a double shot of well vodka & splash of seven for color kind of guy. Does the job, minimal hangover, but 0 on the panache scale.
I do not like wine, either. Tastes like mildewy wood, except for the fresh young wines, or some folk wines, the ones that the snobs won't drink.
But, all you need to do to appreciate good Scotch, or Irish whiskey, or bourbon...is to invest in one excellent bottle, maybe eighteen years old. Unlike wine, which seems to get nastier with age, Scotch gets smoother.
