I last visited the highlands area and coming from a good local source they say, since the distillery was sold to a non family member (Don Julio) there have been some changes over all. from packaging to the way its made. Note: this bottle does not have the "don Julio" image on the bottle anymore.
Seagram/Diageo bought 100% of Don Julio around December 2000 then 2 years later sold 50% to the Beckmann family. Don Julio figurehead, Julio Gonzalez Estrada sadly passed away in March of 2012. Master Distiller Enrique de Colsa has been there for years no? Isn't it still Diageo 50% & Beckmann family 50%?
Remaining family members of Don Julio left that company's board of executives years ago to start Reserva de Los Gonzalez NOM1518....
Guessing Don Julio is a somewhat privately held company and doesn't really need to publicly disclose things a la Patron... so yeah.
Keep seeing old Don Julio Blancos & Repos 6+ years old - the design before new presentation - undecided if its worth it. Saw some Cabo Wabo Añejo NOM1467 $550MX pesos lol
