About this mezcal

Siete Misterios Doba-Lá is made from maguey Tobalá (Agave Potatorum). “Doba-Lá” is the Zapotec name for agave Tobalá, and the brand chose this name to differentiate it between the Siete Misterios Tobalá which is distilled in clay pot stills. This mezcal is distilled by Don Celso Martinez in San Luis del Rio, Oaxaca. The magueys are cooked in an underground oven, crushed using a horse-drawn tahona, fermented naturally in pine vats with mountain spring water, and distilled twice in copper stills.

Siete Misterios Mezcal

Siete Misterios was founded in 2010 by brothers Julio and Eduardo Mestre with the intent of keeping traditional mezcal production at the forefront of the mezcal industry. The company sources a wide range of mezcals that all highlight a single agave varietal. They are backed by those who are deeply saddened by the industrialization seen in most tequila and some low-grade mezcal, and they’re doing everything in their power to keep the art of the mezcalero alive. The mezcaleros making their bottles change batch to batch, so one batch’s bottles may taste entirely different from the next batch’s bottles. This gives Siete Misterios a lot of variety in it’s bottling as each batch is made by a different person, with agave grown in a slightly different micro-climate, and the mezcal may hold a slightly different ABV. Make sure to check your bottle for these details.

In 2021, the Mestre brothers formed a partnership with Chatham Imports with Chatham becoming the exclusive global sales and marketing agent for Los Siete Misterios, excluding Mexico.

While I didn’t like this nearly as well as the Mexicano or Arroqueño or Barril, it’s still pretty good. However at $165 at my local store I don’t think I’ll get it.

Nose – Light and fruity with a tiny bit of ethanol notes

Mouth: Goes in and flairs up with heat a bit, but then settles down and coats in a nice way

Taste: Light nuts, maybe almonds. Shifts to light leather and Nilla Wafers – then out of nowhere comes this big earthy rosemary bang.
