There is an historical aspect to such older bottles of CR, as they date from an era when Seagram actually ran multiple distilling sites across Canada, including the well-known Lasalle and Waterloo operations as well as lesser-known ones such as Amherstburg and Beaupré. Nowadays, to be able to taste a CR that actually contains any quantities of these distillates, you have to opt for the upper echelon offerings such as Special Reserve and XR. The Limited Edition did contain some, but I'm not so sure this is still the case.
Unfortunately, as has already been alluded to, these sorts of considerations don't really matter in the open market unless you happen upon that 'rare' collector specifically interested in what you have to offer.
