Mezcal from the much-loved Marca Negra selection, made with the also-incredibly-popular agave variety, Espadín. This particular agave makes excellent spirit, hence its popularity among distillers and mezcal drinkers alike.
Nose: You've got Mezcal smokiness up front, though in the background there's fragrant, almost perfumed notes wafting through.
Palate: Well-cooked agave with a touch of char. Citrus fruit notes develop on the mid palate, with a little hint of freshly chopped herbs.
Finish: Herbaceous with smoke and tobacco.
Overall: Quite a bold expression, though rather good for showing off classic Mezcal characteristics (as well as cocktails, of course).
