Parce 8 Year Rum
Parce // Colombia
Colombian rum isn’t well known to the casual consumer, but there are several high quality expressions that originate there. Parce (slang for “good friend” in Colombia) is a relatively new U.S.-based private-label brand importing existing aged rum from Colombia, creating eight- and twelve-year versions. The Parce 8 is a blend of rums with a minimum of eight years in ex-bourbon casks.
Aged RumRum that is aged, but no specific type or size barrel required. No set time required for length of aging, but will often carry an age statement (which should be taken with a grain of salt). Often thought of as "sipping rums".
"In the glass, the rum is moderately dark for its age. Nosing it yields vanilla and charred oak. The initial palate is noticeably dry, and there’s very little in the way of fruit. Midway through, a tiny hint of oiliness makes its presence known. The finish is not particularly long and is slightly ragged. In typical Spanish style, this rum’s flavor is dominated by barrel-induced elements. This is not a particularly complex rum for a somewhat premium price."
