Default The importation of Molasses

I was just curious as to Rum Distilleries that actually grow their own cane for example Appleton Estates and perhaps most of the ones in the DR. Compared to the ones that don't and import their molasses say for example Cruzan rum.

In theory I would believe that the former would have the better tasting rum after all their molassess is fresher and they have the pick of the litter. Where as the former has to wait for their molasses to be shipped and who knows how adulterated it might be. However does it really make a difference? Afterall Cruzan consistently makes great rum.

Does anyone know much about the molasses importation business? Thanks for the info.
