You've never had alcohol? I remember when I was in the middle east, it was illegal... but we found plenty! haha.
It really depends on the alcohol and the 'proof,' or the percent of pure alcohol. For example, that scotch was 43% alcohol (86 proof). There are alcohols like Everclear that are 95% alcohol (190 proof). That drastically changes how harsh it is to drink. The scotch, for example, is pretty rough (to me, again not a drinker), so a sip burns on the way down. Everclear? Forget it, that's like drinking gasoline! But I had some 'deep south hick' friends in the Military that loved it.
Other alcohols aren't as bad. Tuaca is probably my favorite. It's a very smooth italian liquor. Tastes very citrus'y with a hint of vanilla.
All depends on the type (rum, whiskey, etc) of alcohol, and the purity (20% vs 60%) that determines how smoothly it goes down.
Humans are the only creatures that won't live up to the their potential. Give everything your all. When you die, die on E.
So I ask you, what do you intend to do now?
