I thought both tasted worse than piss when I started drinking them.

Personally I think taste is a different thing to flavour. A good whisky has a great flavour, but a good vodka can equally have a great taste. I'm not a fan of flavoured vodkas at all, but the purity of a good, smooth, crystal clear vodka has a taste I can really appreciate when I'm looking to enjoy a serious drink. I'm a partially recovered alcoholic, so such things as strength and ease of partaking remain fairly important to me. I find I can drink an entire bottle or vodka without feeling sick for example, whereas not so with an entire bottle of whisky; too many impurities and flavour to remember it by; too many bad tastes left in the mouth.

As I say my girlfriend has banned me from drinking vodka these days, and not without reason. As much a I love the stuff, it's the devil's drink when you love the stuff, just as I'm sure any whisky lover will attest to in equal measure.

Scotch is an acquired taste, I acquired mine every early.

Good thing about Christmas is that you can get smashed and nobody bats an eyelid.

This year I will be mostly on a Polish tip, drinking Zubr beer and Zubrowka vodka with apple juice.

If nobody has tried Zubr, get down your local Polski Sklep and get some bought. It's 6% but no way does it taste it. There are some stronger beers too that are also nice, it's just that I prefer Zubr. Unfortunately I haven't sourced the cinnamon beer they do, 'cos that's well nice.

What's everyone else on?

I got an alcoholic ginger beer making kit that appears to be pretty infinite in how much it can produce.

I've been on whisky most of Christmas, and a few of my favourite beers. Unfortunately after a few days of over-consumption, I made the damn stupid decision to go dry this January. Started to crack on the 3rd. Now it's just my stubbornness pulling me through

Is the beer any good? Mine has mix for an IPA apparently though I still need to get a couple of bits. Think it will be a fun experiment anyway.

Have you tried the 18 year old Jameson? I had some at xmas. I know nothing about whisky but I liked it a lot more than other whisky I've tried. Seemed to be less burn.

Don't think I could do a dry January btw, good luck with that one. I would probably lose some weight though.

I don't know, I'm not in one place long enough to brew up a batch yet.

I don't think I have, but I certainly would. Irish whiskies are generally not as harsh as Scotches, they are distilled 3 times as opposed to twice.

Me and some hunting buddies tried taking a few of these on one of our hunts. The instructions said to add the mix with water in the included bladder and keep cool for 7 days, do not disturb and after a week filter through cheese cloth. After a week the beer tasted like shit, after two week (when we had run out of regular beer) it still tasted like shit but not as bad as the first one we tried.

We have not taken them since that year.

This one seems fairly hands on and has decent reviews so I'm interested to see how it turns out.

What kind of beer do you usually drink?

I find IPA's to be very hit or miss, there is a local mirco brewery, Prescott Brewery, the does a decent one but otherwise they are far too spotty for my taste.

The Innis & Gunn IPA is lovely. Got major brownie points from my girlfriend's dad for introducing him to it

Not had that one, will look out for it. I've found here which is called oxfordshire something or other which is decent.

I've had a couple of double and triple ones as well which were nice

My beer actually tasted really good. It only produced five 500ml bottles so not technically worth the effort but it was fun to make and produced nice beer and I can try a different flavour next time.

I like beer Lao. Thai beers are pretty shit. Chinese beer is absolutely terrible. There was actually a place that did craft brew in yun nan which was alright except for one which they thought would be cool to make taste like corriander.

Marcus can get fornicate though as my beer was very nice.
