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).
