@Paul I usually have a few preferences, and they rarely include any American wines(most California wines especially seem to be of inferior quality, at least to my tastes). I have a strong preference for French and Spanish wines. As for whiskeys, Canadian blended is my typical go to, since Irish and Scotch are often out of my reach. Aside from that, I typically drink mixed drinks. Not hard to drink enough when you prefer liquor, wine, and mixed drinks.
