@fiddich1980 thanks Tony, I believe it's time to slow down on buying for a while.
@Astroke congratulations! You plan to drink it, right?

@Astroke, I am overjoyed to learn of your good fortune. I can now leave your sample in my open bottle.
So I thought I would leave my first review on the LCBO website. Of course it was rejected. I mean I did review it :)

@Astroke I also had a review rejected. It was for Bumbu Deluxe or whatever their higher priced offering is called. Not sure why it was rejected....the title of my review was “Fraud In A Bottle”.

Sounds like the LCBO will accept only compliments. Apparently honesty is not allowed. What is the point of soliciting reviews when all you want is positive propaganda? The LCBO might as well just write all the reviews itself,..sort of like Scotch producers putting tasting notes on whisky boxes and tubes, telling you what they experienced and suggesting that you are supposed to taste the same things that they did.

@Victor I think they might screen for keywords. My negative review of Bacardi’s bottom shelf white rum was accepted but it also contained recommendations for other lower priced white rums that actually have a taste (Havana Club 3 and Plantation 3 Stars).

@Astroke @OdysseusUnbound Maybe you guys should start a site where people can post honest reviews of the LCBO offerings. Maybe they would eventually get the message - yeah, probably not...

@Victor - 'Apparently honesty is not allowed.'

@Nozinan Does the LCBO monitor Connosr?
I just got my "You get nothing, loser" email from the KGBO. The oh-fer streak continues. No Stagg Jr, no Blanton's Gold, no EHT.

@OdysseusUnbound That’s the trifecta of suck.

When you are the only game in town, positive and non positive reviews don'tmatter to them.
