Enjoyed a glass of Ron Parce 8 year old rum with my friend during a 5,000 mile road trip across 18 States. Bottle and label design are just okay, but nothing spectacular. Semi dark mahogany color. A little bit of oak straight to your nose and palate followed with overwhelmingly sweet notes. Mild burn at the end. Very surprisingly the 8y is much better and much more smooth than the 12y. For whisky lovers, add 2 points.
Very nice on the nose with hints of vanilla. It is an excellent transition spirit for those that traditionally prefer whiskey. The Parce 8 year, aged in whiskey barrels, has a nice character to it that reminds you of sipping a good drink, straight up or on the rocks, in the company of good friends and family. Highly recommended. Love the bottle design as well.
Smooth nose with fair amount of vanilla. Opens up after at least 20min. Round mouth, a bit sweet with candied fruits and hints of bourbon. Pricy I find, and I bought in Colombia where it is produced.
Parce 8-Year is a nice transition rum for those that are used to drinking whiskey. You will not find it on their website but parce is aged in Jack Daniel's barrels. On the 8 year, this gives it a sweet candied fruit taste. There is enough of the whiskey character left in the taste to remind one of sipping on Jack.
The parce 8-Year is a great starting point for a whiskey drink just starting to explore aged rums. With parce, when they list the rum at 8 years, they mean that the youngest rum in the bottle is 8 years.
Me regalaron una botella de Parce 8. Definitivamente no es para tomar puro pero va muy bien con un poco de coca cola. Ron con mucho cuerpo, sabor fuerte pero sin predominar el alcohol.
Here in Colombia, it has a name. Maybe for that reason I was expected THE rum. It really its a good rum, nice color and very good if you consider the aged. But I was expecting a more tasty flavor. Its a little expensive when I consider cost/benefit.
I love its nose, there’s a lot of bourbon vanilla, banana, cocoa and honey. But I think it’s the driest rum I’ve ever tasted. A lot of oak, alcohol and that’s it. One-dimensional taste and the fact that it’s so dry makes it a mediocre-sipper just for whisky fans and not so good cocktails’ companion
I liked it better straight than mixed. Somewhat oaky. Cool bottle and I like the bottle top with the 8 on it. Plus, for each bottle purchased they plant a tree! Enjoying a nice beverage and helping the world! It’s a win-win all around!
Good rum with hints of dry tobacco, mild cigar, leather, and a touch of dark fruits. Zero sweetness and goes well neat alongside of a pipe. I liked this rum more than the 12 year. Man's rum for sure.
Full disclosure: My preferences run to rum. This is my favorite sipping rum. Add a little water if you wish, but it’s not necessary. This rum has great taste without the bite of alcohol.
Subtle notes of banana and coca on the nose and mouthfeel- not too sweet like most Anejo rums are. Balanced flavor of fruit and leather. Very strong rep of a true 8 yr rum most likely no coloring and extra sugar added like a real rum. First time I have had a rum from Columbia. Nice!
The comments on Parce 8 year-old are love/hate with little in between and I understand why. Sampling rums with good friends, we'd tried a couple of sweeter rums before cracking open the Parce bottle. Tried it on the rocks with little time to breath first. SHOCK. I thought my friends were having some fun and had slipped me a bourbon. Look, I love a good bourbon, but not when I'm expecting rum. This was unpleasantly overpowering, although it is smooth. I could try it another night and enjoy it, but make sure your expecting something closer to Jack than Ron when you try this one.
It goes down nice but it’s just too smoky for the rum I like. Tastes more like a whiskey which would make sense since it’s aged in oak barrels.
for parce 8 year is my best For every bottle of Parce sold, Parce will plant a native species tree in deforested regions of Colombia. To date, more than 30,000 trees have been planted, with 60,000 more estimated in the coming year
