About this mezcal
OAX Original Tobalá is made from Maguey Tobala (Agave Potatorum) from San Luis del Rio, Oaxaca, Mexico. Picked up at the agave’s premium and brought to distillation at the maturity point, the plants were ~12 years old.
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.

Smells and tasted fresh cut grass on a summer morning. Delicate in the beginning but warms the chest up a 5 seconds later. Thick palate through out the process. Since it was in a ceramic bottle I thought I would get a weird taste but not the case. Bubble gum also comes to mind.
