By that I mean different kinds of alcohol. And the sensation and effects that comes along with it.

If you get close to 200-proof (100% alcohol), as with the case of Spyritus or Everclear, the taste is almost like gasoline or kerosene while instantly drying up your entire throat and potentially even triggering a gag reflex.
It's not the best taste.
If you've never tried alcohol and want to try, my suggestion is an easy cocktail like a Margarita or Pina Colada. I imagine almost everyone would like the taste of those.
For beer, it's an earthy kind of taste that's really off-putting at first for most people, even more so than straight coffee. It's not sweet, not salty -- something very unlike any other food or drink I can imagine. But you tend to come to mysteriously like it over time, especially when accompanied by certain types of food.
Wine is generally quite bitter and sour -- some more bitter/sour than others. It's a little easier to drink than beer perhaps, but still a bit harsh if you're not used to it.
Then ~80-proof liquors like straight vodka, tequila, whiskey, rum, gin -- they all have a very unique flavor. I actually found these easier to drink straight than wine or beer at first, but I might be an oddball.
Anyway, it's hard to describe the taste of something. For example, how would you describe the taste of an apple? Best to just try it if you're really curious.0

I'm not a fan of alcohol. I've tried quit a few different kinds and they were all terrible. I wouldn't suggest trying Bacardi 151. Its so nasty with a not so pleasant taste. If you don't like just regular alcohol, then you might wanna try something that has fruit flavor in it. I've had mikes hard lemonade and it was actually alright.1
