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, Oaxaca using the agave Tepeztate that take between 20-30 years to mature. This has an intense minerality with notes of spicy green peppers, chives, and peat.
Nose: Green peppers, grass and wild chive underlie a rich smokiness akin to peat smoke.
Palate: Hot chili pepper and citrus add further complexity.
Finish: Long, lingering spicy/smoky.
