About this mezcal

Marca Negra Sanmartin is made with 100% estate-grown agave Sanmartin, which is a karwinskii agave similar to Cuishe and Cirial. This mezcal is produced by Basilio Pacheco in La Noria, 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

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

  • Overall:

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.
