Los Siete Misterios Mezcal have become known for two things: their tremendous bottle designs, and their excellent single-agave strain Mezcals. This is an excellent example of both – made exclusively from wild Doba-Yej agave and featuring a strikingly well-dressed skeleton on the label. Terroir is enormously important for Mezcal, and therefore, this is an excellent bottle to really get to grips with the taste of a certain strain of agave, from a certain part of Mexico. This is an extraordinarily floral Mezcal, offering up notes of honey suckle and lilies on the nose, with a rich juicy fresh smoke. The palate leads with succulent agave notes, and again that floral note recurs, with the Mezcal very reminiscent of enjoying the scent of cactus flower on a hot day. The finish is long and warming, with a delicious drying smoke. We enjoyed this served neat, but could see it working excellently when paired with elderflower and soda water as a tall drink on a summer’s day.
