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?
The 21 is produced and bottled at DDL.
I do not think it was sold earlier in the USA, I'll confirm it and let you know.
