Got absolutely hammered on whisky at the age of 16 and now cannot stand the smell.
About 20 years ago rented a holiday house in the Cairgorms at New Year. The owner invited me in for a 'new year drink'. His accent was very broad and he seemed the ultimate Scotsman. 'What'll ye have' I was asked. Thought 'there is no way I can ask for anything than whisky with the way he seems as he is bound to be a whisky man' so asked for that. He had a gin and tonic!
