Trust me, I have not read any further than what you've said eloquently & without offense.

I can't for the life of me figure out how you'll eliminate the other couple of thousand variables and isolate rusty ole' oxidization.

Have you considered all the natural and unnatural factors that you'd have to rule out as being responsible for alteration between batch leaps? Everything from global warming to hurricanes to Diageo sucking up or selling off the product line (to name one large conglomerate), to the wood, water or cane sources being altered? There's more but let's stop there.
