I'll have to do some more research. I've always tried not to rely on producers/distillers website but rather personal experience.
No doubt that as Pernod continues to market Havana Club outside Cuba that the lineup will change. I'll see if I can get some better information.
As for my own database, there is always a lot of work to do.

The Barrel Proof is a good example. Obviously, "Barrel Proof," is simply a trade name like "Bacardi 8" which isn't aged 8 years at all. I am certain that the rum in the "Barrel Proof" doesn't come out of the barrel at less than 50% abv. Though it could be diluted, put in another barrel, and then drained at barrel proof, but then who's watching?

Máximo sounds like a marketing name to me.
