    Mezcal Marca Negra

  • ABV:


  • Age:


  • Price:
  • Raided Score: 93
  • Publication: Distiller
  • Excerpt: Erupts into a haze of herbal smoke, with cooked ancho chile, bitter herbs, and lemon peel before finishing with a medicinal, lozenge-like note. If a shaman's house burned down, this is what the air would likely smell like. This is a complex and challenging mezcal, yet one that delivers flavor in spades.

  • Intro:

    Also known as Mexicano, Agave Dobodan is used to produce this release by Alberto Ortiz for Mezcal Marca Negra. Distilled in Santa Maria La Pila, this is Batch XAO014-17. Bottle 450/890. Let's dive in!

  • Nose:

    Rich vanilla bean, cream, praline, pepper and some pineapple. Roasty agave is front and center. Enticing.

  • Taste:

    Thick, rich, mouth feel. Lots of honey, pepper, pineapple, melon and jalapeƱo pepper. Really complex, lots going on.

  • Finish:

    Long and exceptional. Minerality steps in to pair with faint ash, some smoke, some pear and pineapple. Excellent agave character, really roasty character.

  • Overall:

    Whew, this is downright lovely. I could drink this all day. This shows off so much great Mexicano character, in a way that just jives with my palate.
