Overrated Liquors that Unsuspecting Masses Consider Quality
Does anyone else laugh whenever they see people so proud at the fact that they bought Patron, Corona and Grey Goose? They consider these to be quality beverages and I don't get it; they pale in comparison to the majority of their lesser known competitors. I can understand the popularity of low-cost, low-grade liquors like Svedka, Bud Light and Yellowtail but I cannot believe the power that marketing plays on unsuspecting masses' affinity for the popular, yet crappy product. Name some other brands that you think are highly overrated and/or voice your opinions on the aforementioned brands.
