Mezcal Los Siete Misterios Arroqueño
Mezcal Los Siete Misterios // Oaxaca, Mexico
Los Siete Misterios (The Seven Secrets or Mysteries) was founded in 2010 with the mission of preserving the dying tradition of mezcal making. This expression is produced from 100% organic arroqueño agave which is produced traditionally and is double-distilled in clay pot-pot stills. It is unaged and is bottled at a proof of 97.4. The seven mysteries are the bottlings themselves; they have seven expressions available, each representing a different type of agave.
Mezcal JovenA spirit distilled from one or more different varieties of agave. Can only be produced in designated areas within 8 different Mexican states. Must be bottled in México. This is unaged or aged in stainless steel or plastic containers before bottling.
"This mezcal starts off with lemon, but quickly evolves into gummy bears, passion fruit, pineapple, juniper and newly-tanned leather. The fact that this was distilled in a clay still becomes very apparent on the palate with complex and intriguing with notes of cedar, fresh leather, chalk, terra cotta, coriander, sage and marjoram. The sensation is quite tannic and high toned, so much so that it feels almost ethereal. The mouth puckers from its bright acidity leaving you quenched and ready for another taste."
