Marca Negra Tepeztate is produced in limited quantities due to the scarcity of the agave Tepeztate. This mezcal is made by Jorge Mendez in San Luis del Rio using the agave Tepeztate that take 25-30 years to mature. This is a delicate mezcal that many revere as one of the finest Tepeztate mezcals available outside of Oaxaca. It has an intense minerality with notes of spicy green peppers, chives, and peat.

    This is a really nice Tep that has mellowed out in the glass. There are some big fruity flavors of black currant and cherry here along with pepper and licorice. This Tep is a bit ‘dark’ but enjoyable. 47.3% ABV. Batch MJ04-15, 494/600.

    smell is mild, slight sweetness, almost a little earthy (or like vegetables). flavor doesn’t have much smokiness or pepperiness of most mezcals. has a slight sweetness but is harsh in flavor and not my favorite.

    Didn’t get a chance to look at the bottle for year or batch number. On the nose pretty standard. Notes of ethanol charred poblano and a bit on the floral side. The palate is not overly exciting but clean and relatively balanced. Finishes with a good length and tingle.

    Batch number is hard to read: I1J04-1g? This mezcal is very balanced and flavorful. It’s a bit hot like the Tobala that is made from this same mezcalero. This is a bit odd as the Tepeztate is only 47.3%. The notes are sweet and full. I prefer the Don Beto releases from Marca Negra, but this one is also good.

    (can’t read batch #/ bottle 402/600) AROMA: attractive fresh clean sweet aromas. no sign of smoke. piquant exotic nose blossom to guava & strawberry. pear. peach. pineapple. PALATE: alcohol seems to emerge midway and expands firmly to finish, expanding the structure broadly on the palate nicely. firm, focused core. solid & compact. taut. restrained exchange of minerals around the edge with long earthy adobe brick. sophisticated gunpowdery dry finish.
