About this mezcal

Marca Negra Sanmartin is made with 100% estate-grown maguey Sanmartin, which is an agave Karwinskii similar to Cuishe and Cirial. This mezcal is produced by Basilio Pacheco in La Noria Seccion 13, Ejutla, Oaxaca. It has aromas of river bed clay, and clean flavor notes of cocoa beans, figs, hay, and moss. It carries a slight aftertaste of bananas and wild mint.

Marca Negra Mezcal

Mezcal Marca Negra is made for all who wish to explore and embrace the ancient traditions of true mezcal. The handprint on the bottle represents the tireless work of the master distillers and the ancient knowledge that marks each and every batch. Marca Negra seeks the purest and most diverse expressions of this fantastic spirit, wherever they made be found. Due to limited batch production, the product line changes constantly. New mezcal varieties are created while others cease to exist. Mezcal Marca Negra is 48% ABV or higher because the mezcal is bottled at the alcohol level preferred by the maestro mezcaleros. Check your bottles for details about each specific batch.

Marca Negra make some of the best mezcals (IMO) – I have not had one I didn’t like. I just brought San Martin back from MX and it’s very good, it drinks quite warm (as it should) – would buy again and again

XBP14-18. Nicely balanced. This was definitely made by someone who knows what they are doing. Warming spices. Cinnamon, clove, allspice. Brown sugar and caramel. Sweet but in a good way. Not at all bitter or floral or fruity, just woody, warm, and spicy. Good complexity. I dig this one.

Lot XBP14-18 12/300. Awesome complexity. Karwinskii lovers will enjoy this. The Pacheco family makes some tasty juice.

This is from memory in Mexico a week ago. Spend a good portion of my day getting to know this bottle.
Bottle : 1501/1800

Nose : very closed at first but halfway through the bottle it became incredibly complex with layers that opened different personalities.

Taste : intense and concentrated. Hot and powerful. Spicey and herbal. Wow…

Finnish : for days.
