Yes, it's sad what one bad drunk can do to good booze. The ONLY way I can drink tequila (any tequila) anymore is in a margarita. I used to enjoy tequila shots. But one night I did 17 of them, and now the thought of a tequila shot makes me retch.
My original liquor of choice was bourbon. Then one night I drank a bottle of Jack Daniels and threw up on a cop (relax, I was riding in the back seat of the car that got pulled over and the driver was completely sober). Now, I keep my distance from all bourbon.
I also learned to drink differently than I used to - otherwise there wouldn't be much left that I could stand to simply enjoy, as opposed over indulge in.
Fortunately I've been immune to this phenomenon, so I've never quite understood it even though I know lots of people who've told the same story, particularly with tequila. I've gotten sick on too much tequila as well, but I also knew that had I done a dozen or so shots of vodka, bourbon, rum or whatever (usually in addition to beer), it would have been the same result. My wife doesn't drink any wine at all since a similar night of over-indulgence. Fortunately I never scarred myself for life and can still enjoy a few shots of good tequila, in moderation of course. :-)
