Default 1920's Bacardi

Last night at Corona Cigar, they had a few very old bottles of rum in special cabinet that were for sale. There was a 1920's gallon jug of Bacardi from Cuba in a weave basket from the prohibition days, yes, full of rum.
The price: $15,000:eek:!!! There were a few others, but those escape me.
My only question was: How could we know how the rum was distilled and aged? The same question I would ask on any vintage rum or other expensive collector's item. I must say, the bottles were very cool to look at, and they made me wonder about how things were way back when.
