About this mezcal

OAX Original

OAX Original is a mezcal meant to be experienced. Unboxing an OAX bottle is unveiling a piece of art, exclusive and unique, carefully packed in a custom cardboard box for protection. Their bottle is inspired by vernacular Mexican architecture, a blend between the mysterious monolithic pre-Hispanic architecture and Euro-American Modernist design, spearheaded by Luis Barragán and presently embodied in the work of architects Frida Escobedo, Mauricio Rocha and Gabriela Carrillo, among others. Made out of ceramic, their bottle and full packaging have been produced in Mexico.

Lot TPZ1A. 44% ABV. Smells nice. Aromas of orange peel, lemon, and lime. More aromas of sweet vanilla bean and macadamia. The palate is also very citric, with notes of orange and apple juice with lots of smoke. There’s a heavy smoke element to this, more so than with most I’ve had recently. I’m not getting a lot of the peppery notes I typically associate with Tepeztate, but this has some really nice fruity notes.
