I don't believe that the (small) difference in the specific heats of
the beer and the liquor would make a significant difference. And such
things as freezing points, latent heats of freezing, etc., are
irrelevant because neither liquid froze.
I still think that the different thermal conductivities of the metal
cans and the glass bottles is the basic cause. That's one of the
reasons why they sell beer in cans - so it can be cooled fast.
