Mezcal is often referred to as the South of the Border cousin to Islay Scotch. While not every bottle merits this comparison, the new line from Mezcal Marca Negra stands out with distinct smokiness and a strong, proud identity of where it was grown. Every bottle of Marca Negra contains information on the type of agave used, where it was made, the master distiller’s name and even the batch and bottle number- quite literally, a thumbprint of its origin. Marca Negra (Black Hand) might be one of the smokiest Mezcal's around actually, making it a fine candidate to pair with a fine cigar on a cold night.
Mezcal Marca Negra Espadin uses 100% Agave Espadin. It's very smoky, and we could consider it as the South of the Border cousin to Islay Scotch. This makes us very excited indeed! Made in a very limited quantity of 3150 only. Apparently the hand print on the bottle is the one from a Mezcalero.
