I dont get it. It literally all tastes the same. Sometimes i'll get a vague hint of an aftertaste but mostly it all tastes like alcohol. how do i actually start tasting all the various "notes"? or is it all a placebo

If you think absinthe, vodka, tequila, and rum taste the same there might be something wrong with you.

You probably burned out your palate on sugar and artificial flavorings. A good way to taste anything more, not just liquor, is to cut out soda and cheap candy from your diet and eat real food. Make your tongue remember there are flavors besides pow wow in your face fake ass grape and shit

yep the only alcohol that actually tasted good to me was some cheap beers after hard manual labour... everything else just disgusting.. most of all vodka.. which is actually my favorite alcohol because it gives you the effect but almost no hangover later (at least to me)

You can just avoid a handover by eating or drinking water. it isn't rocket science unless you're a hard core alchoholic who'd need to drain a local lake to stay hydrated

The most important thing: take small sips, only enough to where it mixes with your saliva, or just barely enough to swallow anything. If you're taking big sips, the alcohol simply overpowers everything. Swish it around it your mouth or "chew" and you start getting the idea.
Use a glass that's appropriate for nosing/tasting, one that holds a relatively small volume, and has a smaller mouth so you don't get hit with alcohol when you go in. See pic. Compare sticking your face in a big tumbler full of whisky vs just sniffing the opening of the bottle, it's a huge difference.
It can help to let the drink sit in the glass for 10-30 minutes.
It can help to add a few drops of water, especially to higher proof whiskies.
Nosing is another aspect I've glossed over, but I think just learning to drink the stuff without wincing or burn is more important.

Also, should be obvious but it helps not to drink bottom shelf liquor if you're trying to appreciate taste.

This

Alot of drinks young people drink are very sweet forward. For example vodka raspberry, Expresso Martini, rum&coke for example.
Drinks like greyhound, blood and sand, Intro into Aperol and clover club will play to the sweetness but add a complexity.

A lot of it comes down to how you frame your mindset.
That "burning" sensation you get while drinking hard liquor can either be painful, or it can be a washing feeling that flows through your body.
It's fire water. Either it will hurt you or it will warm you.
If you can reframe your mindset around that, you'll start to understand really quickly what separates good whiskey from bad whiskey.

If it has sugar it will leave an acid aftertaste, but bitter black coffee will delete any residual smell or taste.

If you can't tell the difference between smoky and smooth whiskey your palate is broken. You're probably just drinking different brands of the same type. Pick up some bourbon, Islay and Speyside and see if you can't tell the difference.

Do not put ice in whiskey, you need to take small sips at room temperature. Putting ice in kills most of the flavour.
