1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    For me it would be Glenmorangie, but Glenfiddich at the right price would be just as acceptable.
    Bushmills 10 year old single malt is also very smooth and currently on offer at Waitrose £25. Despite reservations from some of my friends in the South that it is not a proper Irish whiskey, I'd willingly accept a bottle or two.

    they do lots of different types and they're all good but some of them are a bit "designery" like the fire and cane and i would avoid them as they would most likely disappoint someone by being too different, the choice goes from the standard £30ish up to £27,500 for the 50 year old :eek:

    choices - The Whisky Exchange : Online Whisky Shop - Buy Single Malt Scotch Whisky, Whiskies of the World, Rare Whisky : The Whisky Exchange

    assuming no expense spared also means keeping it reasonable which in my mind is under a hundred, the bottle i would most like would be this one - Glenfiddich 15 Year Old Distillery Edition Scotch Whisky : The Whisky Exchange as it is harder to find, cask strength standard aged glenfiddich and a litre which will last longer and works out about 70ish in standard bottle size so he won't be scared about drinking it

    anything over a ton a bottle and people tend to leave them on the shelf as ornaments

    interesting aside, a bottle of 8 year old whisky bottled fifty years ago will only ever be 8 years old as it can only mature in the casks not the bottle

    i have had no problems with orders from whisky exchange or master of malt

    Are you specifically wanting a Glenfiddich, or just Whisky of that style, basically a Speyside?

    Personally I'd maybe go for something a little different as a gift as it's always nice to get something someone wouldn't buy themselves, due to price or style.

    One of my favourites is the Irish Midleton rare range - https://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/p/15233/midleton-barry-crockett-legacy

    I find Irish Whiskey can be a nice change to Scottish and still very very good.

    Also the Japanese stuff is getting extremely good, especially the Yamazaki, although a little pricey for what it is, but nice to try different things.

    Just don't buy him Laphroaig. Possibly the worst whisky ever made. Stinking of smoke n peat, utterly utterly bogging!

    I know it sounds silly but have a look on Amazon, they often have great deals on single malts

    Glenfiddich is my personal favourite, on the rare occasions that I take strong liquor.

    Other makes can taste very different ( = vile) to some taste buds - Laphroaig had already been mentioned,for example.

    Just being allegedly "prestigious " is no guarantee that the recipient will enjoy it.

    Lots of snobbery - as with wine etc - but taste is very personal.

    A litre of proper 15 year old Glenfiddich would be ideal, if you ask me!

    I have to agree. One dram was enough for me, it was like bonfire ashes in liquid form.
