Default Ron del Barrilito 5 Star?

In the USA, all I can get is 2 & 3 Star versions. When I was in Puerto Rico a few years back, a bartender told me that there was Barrilito 5 Star available, but they did not sell it in the USA. He also went on to say that the Family that produces the Rum are Nationalists, and vowed not to sell it until P.R. became and independant country again. Not sure about the latter, but I thought I had R.B. 5 star when I was there.

Did I have too many Mojito's, or do/did they have a 5 star? I've looked all over the internet, but cannot find anything to corroborate this story. Maybe a special Reserva they had a limited release of???
