Mezcal Marca Negra Espadin

The Schtick: This is a Mezcal distilled by Jorge Mendez Ramirez using the Espadin agave for Marca Negra. Batch M21-17, Bottle 121/5325, this proves to be an interesting bottling, as I have 4 others to compare it to shortly. Let’s see how it is.

Review #1345 | Mezcal Review #50

Distiller: Jorge Mendez Ramirez

Bottler: Marca Negra

Brand: Marca Negra


ABV: 49.8% ABV

Age: NA

Nose: Bright citrus, agave nectar, vinegar, clay and some funk. Light pepper.

Taste: Medium mouth feel – pleasant sweetness. Proof feels just right. Sweet cream, pepper, light clay and soil with a nice earthy finish. Light minerality. Excellent mouth feel as it sits.

Finish: Short but crisp and clean. Lots of pepper, mango, light clay, then it whisps away.

Overall: Excellent look at another Espadin – and one of my favorites so far. This does what it needs to well, and doesn’t do anything poorly.

Thanks for reading!
