Unless you do a side-by-side taste test, I doubt many people could tell a difference. If smoke is applied right, not oversmoked, but as part of the whole experience, very few people will notice any difference.

That said, I have never used mesquite. The majority of my smoking has been oak, hickory, and cherry,(on poultry). My son swears by peach, but I can't tell any difference in the finished product.

I am right with you there. Still, plenty of people like one wood or another that I do not. If it makes them happy, fantastic!

I cant tell much difference except Mesquite from all others. Mesquite is Heavy smoke taste. I use hickory mostly but use Pecan, Apple and Cherry also.

About 60% or 70% of cases there is difference, the remainder may have more to do with other factors besides wood.

Most certainly, for me it does. oak, hickory, pecan for meat and some pork.
Cherry, apple, pear for poultry and some pork.
I like cherry for Texas style ribs.
