Last night i was invited round to dinner where wine was the only alcoholic option. So I had to make do with fruit juice as I really dont get the appeal of wine. OK for putting in sauces or removing stains. Anyone else not into wine?
Oh yes i was also offered cola. An exceptionally unpleasant oversugared concoction. Some people pollute dark rum (the prince of spirits) with this muck!!!

White wine gives me chronic heartburn, so I never drink it. Whisky does the same, but I like the taste, so I indulge occasionally with a single dram. My dislike for wine always leaves me feeling like a tool if I am in a posh restaurant.
I always imagine the waiters are thinking "You poor uneducated half-wit, drinking beer with the delicate flavour of truffle sauce"
meh.

And although I am a blokey bloke, that goes down the pub with other blokes, I am the only one of my friends that has no interest in football. I don't support a club. I find it tedious. Always have.

I used to love wine, could tell my New World from the Europeans, but can not drink it all, and have not, for over 3 years. A good heavy red was my preference. Cabalie was near the top, if you are interested. In fact, it was the last wine I drank. Still have a bottle sitting there for over 3 years. Yep, the switch off was that dramatic. I don't even know why I went off it. It, all wine, just suddenly became unpalatable and the smell acerbic, even after breathing etc.... Any Drs got any ideas?

Not into football/rugby/tennis either, unlike Mrs W and my eldest, who can produce encyclopedia style reviews of any player/club/season/manager etc..... I let them get on with it and do other anorak stuff.

Don't understand the appeal of running......all that extra wear and tear on the joints etc....not good. Like swimming though.

Used to like footie before Murdoch/Sky etc ruined it by turning into big business. I dont see how anyone can follow teams of greedy, foreign mercenaries who've no affiliation to the clubs they play for and the fans. Back in the glory days of Liverpool FC we used to think of Kenny Dalglish, Alan Hansen and Ian Rush as being foreign.
Sad to say rugby (which I like) and cricket (which I dont) have followed suit with shirts spoiled by horrible advertising. Really dont get why people like to watch Formula One on TV. A trip to the Monaco Grand Prix, cool, but sat on a settee in front of the goggle box?

with you there, nuge, the taste, smell and effect of wine are repellent to me, and will opt for the soft drink option in the same situation. tipples are irish whiskey, scottish malt, or a good 'blend', with a quality lager type beer (currently have a taste for 'jeremiah weed')

enjoy football, tho', used to attend most killie matches, stopped as protest at jim jefferies (the worst and most boring manager ever). never have got back into the way of it.

ERRR...yeah?!!...

I have NO taste at all for wine - I just don't seem to be able to get whatever it is that everybody else seems to from it? To me, any wine is simply nothing more than how I would imagine a glass of petrol mixed with a generous slug of nail polish remover and a large splosh of malt vinegar might taste like?!! I guess that some people, of which I must be one, just don't develop the taste for things in the same way as others do?

However, after years of going out and being absolutely bored to tears as well as also feeling rather excluded and perhaps even a little childish in my tastes too, I finally discovered a drink that I really enjoy drinking?...a double Captain Morgan in a tall glass topped up with (*a-hem?*) Pepsi (and not bland and far too bubbly Coke), ice and a large slice of Lemon...!

So? - I shall take my contribution to the thread back and leave now then, shall I...?!! ;o>

ARRRGGGHHH!!!...if I had a penny for every time someone told me that and then forced me into trying to swallow down a mouthful of the most disgusting thing that I could ever imagine putting in my mouth! I honestly think that I would actually probably prefer to drink petrol?!! ;o<

Here's another penny, then, Suzy - you just aren't drinking the right wine ;-D

I used to think I was the only person in the world who didn't like coca-cola but could manage pepsi. A bit of useless info but you can get pepsi in Saudi but not coke - apparently they are part of the zionist conspiracy, along with Harry Belafonte amongst others ffs.
A bootle of white or rose (but not red as it always conjures up and tastes like peasants' feet) with a meal is nice with an irish coffee afterwards.
Am I unusual in the fact that if I never had bread again it wouldn't bother me? Any kind from wonderstodge to rustic from hillside hovels; I just wouldn't miss it.

Don't understand gym-goers. Waking up an hour early or otherwise restructuring your day to go to a place that charges huge fees for you to then have to worry about whether it's leg day or arm day, to take part in an eternal pissing contest to see how much you can lift and who has the most pronounced pecs etc. There have to be cheaper, easier and more enjoyable ways of keeping fit.

And aside from that, why have a six pack when you can have a keg?

What is the right wine? i've tasted wines from all wine producing countries - red, white, that horrible pink muck rose - from budget to the best Bordeaux. As a student I spent a summer at Pauillac picking grapes. Part payment was two bottles of the stuff a day. I drank it cos there was nowt else and it was quite the party vibe there with 30 students from across Yurrp. I think part of the problem for me is the culture of snobbery that has grown around it where you get wine ponces like Oz Clarke, a man in need of a slap if ever there was.

I do also love an Irish Coffee - thankfully too, as it is almost a compulsory drink given to young and old alike at many of my family's Irish Weddings and Wakes that I have attended. I remember being handed my first steaming mug with a generous splash of 'God's nectar' in it when I was about 3 years old!...by my Great-Grandma (my beloved Nan...x).

Bread, hey?...Ooooh?...hot, soft fluffy centre?...thick, crispy and crunchy yet yielding crust?...straight out of the oven?... and torn into huge pieces? and generously slathered with ice cold butter?...!!!

Ohhh yes!!!...I can definitely feel a Meg Ryan (When Harry Met Sally) moment coming on!!! HA HA HA!!! ;o>

Slap a few thick rashers of lightly smoked bacon in it, with a good dollop of Heinz tomato ketchup and a sprinkling of freshly ground black pepper...and I'm yours!!! ;o>

In reply to an earlier post on 24 Jan 2014 12:06:47 GMT
All hard prickly bubbles and no discernible taste?!!...and don't get me started on the Coke!!! ;o>

The only thing Coke is good for is cleaning brassware and limescale in toilet bowls.

I would go for something like this tbh Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva Venezuela Rum 40% 70cl. Wood's is nice but it's 'rocket fuel' at nearly 60% abv. Speaking of Guyanese Rum, I got a 15 year old bottle (from Aldi of all places) just before Xmas that is even nicer than those two, this stuff here: El Dorado 15YO Old Special Reserve Rum 70cl

I have drank plenty of them, even Mundies on one memorable occassion.

Can't understand what has happened.

Why would you be putting brassware and limescale into a toilet bowl?
