I understand Ed-

I just thought maybe you could have a thread that manufactures could post about new products or their latest news. Many cigar manufactures in the cigar industry join web sites like this to reach out to their core audience. These are multi million dollar companies that are very busy people that seem to “find the time”.

But I think it would be great for us to be able to summit questions. Another reason why I enjoy this website. Keep up the good work.

Are they apt to be offended by such questions? Given the lack of information to this point, wouldn't such questions just be unlikely to receive a detailed response? Would it really hurt to ask?

The distillers will have the opportunity to answer those questions they want to answer. If they don't want to answer a question, that question will be suppressed to public view. If in the future they want to go back and answer more questions, that will be up to them.

I'm talking to several companies about sponsored forums where they can post new product releases, event announcements, contests and general information. In this space they could also interact with Ministry of Rum members in an environment where they could moderate the discussion. Stay tuned.

How many different marks are distilled by DDL to begin the aging process?

Welcome Carl. It is wonderful that you have joined in here and opened a venue amongst the rum lovers on board.

Your rums are not easy for me to find here in Puerto Rico, but those I have tasted are quite lovely.

One thing that has interested me are the age statements on the El Dorado line. For instance, The "25" states a full 25 years in cask, Where as the "15" describes a "blend" of up to 25.

Can you flesh out an overview of the age statements for the El Dorado line?

A warm welcome once again.

Best regards, and keep up the good work.

Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions!
I am curious about the barrels you use, and how they are treated prior to the inclusion of the rum.
