Marca Negra Mezcal

If a worthy expression of traditional Mezcal is to be found in the most remote village - be it in the Oaxacan Sierra, or the desert of Durango- Marca Negra will go there to make and available for you in its true, original form. Their bottles display specific information on their label, such as the type of agave it is made of. Be sure that it is of 100% pure agave and that the alcoholic volume is above 45%. Another important fact to consider is the region your Mezcal comes from as well as the name of the maestro who distilled it. That is how you know your bottle is unique. Check your bottles for details about each specific batch. Mezcal PhD did a nice blog on these guys - Mezcal Marca Negra: Good Things Are Happening

At first smell, you get the fresh smell of petrol. Mix around a few times and you will get hints of burnt rubber.
Once you hit the first swig of mezcal it starts off smooth with a pungent taste of Mexican plastic sandal . Gulp it all down and you get the full flavor or a good year tired drifted on a few times.

XJM16-17, 50.2% ABV, Jorge Mendez Ramirez. Aromas of light citrus & vanilla, vanilla again for taste, accompanied by mild candied orange and rainwater; nice, pretty mezcal.

Vegetal and woody on the nose. This espadin has notes of pepper, vanilla, lime, and fig. At 50.2% ABV there is a smooth coppery finish. Batch MJ18-15. Recently I tried the espadin from Jorge Mendez at Las Perlas in Austin and was blown away. It has tons of bright floral notes that dance around on your palate. That espadin is one of the best I’ve ever tasted. 50.2% ABV. Batch Xjm16-17.

Batch MJ18-15. This is a really good Espadin. It’s a bit hot at +50% ABV, but still soft enough for sipping. Tasting notes of fresh coconut, almond, cinnamon, and fruity hints of apple and apricot. The finish is warm and clean.
