Working with Mezcal experts in Oaxaca to get it just right, the third scent in the Kelly + Jones Mezcal trilogy is alluring, complex, and delicious – all in a single inhale. A holiday celebration in the mezcalerias in the city’s center, you’re warmly welcomed with darkly sweet fruit, a sparkling heat from the warming of spices in the distance, and as these begin to be carried by the breeze, a gently smoky, ambery wood starts to fill your nose. We know there’s a leathery, sweet green of agave nearby, somewhere, aging to take on a golden-brown hue and the intoxicating, spicy-hot, oak-worn, honeyed burn mezcal is so known and loved for. Not only a top-tier tribute to this venerated spirit, a portion of their proceeds go to Programa Vaca, a Mexico-based organization helping to rebuild the country’s earthquake-affected areas.
Notes include velvet jasmine, leather, smoked amber, guajillo, and golden peach.
