Thank you eli, I wasn't the one to start, but I'll be the one to end, as you know what they say is the problem arguing with idiots:"they first drag you down to their level, and then finish you off with experience", so I'm done.
now that were done lets learn from this experience that well try to stay away from ridiculous and bizarre comments

A Rav once told me that if people would have been invited at a wedding, where a thousand portions of soup are being served, and word got out that in one of the bowls the cook might have dropped some poison, no one would touch the food.

When talking about kashrus, if someone has heard from his third cousin twice removed, who heard from his friend who's uncle dreamed that it should be okay, people often rely on it...

in the 2009 kashrus book put out by the london bais din it says that if Kahlua is not made in the usa it is kosher

All Kahlua is made in Mexico. It is a Mexican product, they do not make it in Spain, the USA or anywhere else. The factory in Mexico is not kosher, so even if it is bottled in Spain or the USA it is still not kosher.
Starbucks is better anyway and that is OU

I came across a sealed bottle in my in-laws liquor chest. My wife tells me that its at least 5 years old. This is the second bottle I found there. The 1st one had a Hechsher, this one does not.

CRC doesn't rely on it. There are no markings on the bottle. I did once hear that there's a way to tell from the bar-code on the bottle. I also read online that OU seemed to have some politics as to why the got fired/left Kahlua.

Either way, anyone with any info? And if it is kosher, any $$ offers for a sealed bottle?

As per London Beth Din's website- "All Kahlua is approved, except when purchased in the USA"

Source: Search here for Kahlua.
