So what's the deal with Castillo?

So what's the deal with Castillo rum? If I understand correctly, it's distilled by Bacardi. Is it the same rum at a younger age than the Bacardi flagship brands, or are there other differences?

Castillo are rums branded to sell for a little less than Bacardi. The product line is also smaller and lacks an old rum. These are primarily used as well brands and since less is spent on advertising, they don't cost as much. Most of the Castillo brand that I am familiar with is produced in San Juan so it should be aged at least a year, probably not much more.

In the Caribbean, a lot of don't want to drink Bacardi, so Castillo has been popular though both are very light bodied rums.
