In “Don Quixote” I ran across this line about a host who has had enough of the knight errant’s behavior: “The innkeeper, who began somewhat to disrelish these mad tricks of his guest, resolved to dispatch him forthwith.”
“Disrelish” is now on my current list of favorite words. If you want to add a little savor to your writing, you can attach the “dis” prefix to a lot of words and still retain your good standing as a practitioner of English.
