Caribbean Airlinesbaggage policy

I recently travelled from Jamaica to Toronto on Caribbean Airlines. After checking in and verifying carry-on luggage, I purchased liquor at the duty free store.

With this purchase, I now had one piece of carry-on, one small personal laptop case and the duty free liquor in its box.

On final check-in before boarding, I along with several other passengers, were informed that the duty free purchase constituted a piece of carry-on luggage and therefore we had to check the carry-on piece.

I, along with most of the affected passengers were surprised by this. I've never seen this rule being applied over the many that I have travelled by air on various airlines to and from various destinations.

I am certainly open to hearing how this makes sense.
