I didn't mean to imply that the rum in the 21 year old was not made by DDL or contained any potentially foreign components.

The suggestion was that at some time in the past the 21 year old was distributed differently than the 5, 12 & 15 year olds. It was secondarily suggested that the final product may have been completed at a different facility than the other iterations. That I took to mean either a different bottling facility or that it went to a different distribution channel.

The main reason I gave these "suggestions" merit is because until maybe 2004 or perhaps 2005, the only time I had seen El Dorado 21 year old was in Europe in a 700ml bottle. Was it previously not sold in the US?
