More of my money has also been going to US wine auctions, foreign purchases (Italy for me), and to direct purchases from agents. There is absolutely no way that I am going back to the days when I'd set my alarm to go line up to buy a bottle of wine on release day.
The first-come, first served approach they have taken to Classics is basically a reversion back to the old communist method of distribution, and I'm not doing that. I used to buy something from every Classics release, and now I have missed every one since the switch to the new first-come, first served format. I also skipped the Dominus silliness. Having broken the habit, it feels rather refreshing.
Fortunately, I travel enough that I'm not dependent on the LCBO, but I feel for the folks that have no choice but be jerked around by the swings in LCBO policy.
