Liking caviar or not has sooooooo got nothing to do with the taste of truffles. I get they are both high end, but you make it sound like your palate won't or can't accommodate upper echelon.
I find truffles to taste of the darkest dankest earth. Think a spot on the earth that is fragrant with roots and foliage, yet cloistered from the sun for decades. Musk, while a pitiful analogy is the only image I can hope you'd conjour. Actually, it would be ever so much easire if you'd simply crawl through my lobes.
Based on what you've written over the years regarding your tastes, I don't believe you'd care for it. You'd appreciate the age of the earth in tasting it, and the degree with which we can produce strange flavours at such an advanced, but I don't think you'd overmuch care for the flavour.
