This Week in COLAs: Another Beam Signature & the 2014 Laphroaig Cairdeas

A few weeks ago, there were a half dozen new labels for the Jim Beam Signature Craft series.  This week, there's another one for a Jim Beam quarter cask finished bourbon.  Unlike the others, this one is NAS. According to the back label, the bourbon is "finished with bourbon aged in quarter-sized casks for four to five years."

The 2014 Laphroaig Cairdeas will include "double matured Laphroaig from bourbon barrels and Amontillado seasoned traditional hogsheads."

Highland Park cleared a label for something called Dark Origins, described as "double first fill sherry casks for a naturally DARKER, richer flavor." (emphasis theirs).

Interesting on the Beam quarter cask. The Laphroaig quarter cask is my goto Laphroaig. I look foreword to learning how the same process works with a bourbon.
