MX Release. Very balanced and complex but on the pricier side. Excellent for winter.

2020 Three Barrel(s) Tears of Llorona Release Nose: Round barrel spices entwined in sweet oak and cedar aromas. Dried fruit, snappy citrus rind, cherries and a tart cider note. Vanilla and leather notes. A touch of wet mulch. No overbearing oak presence so far... and I am detecting agave. Flavors: Fruity, nutty amalgam with dark chocolate, cafe au lait, and honey. More pepper heat than the nose foretold. Develops a velvety Grand Mariner/Amaretto butterscotch vibe. This profile has great range in its repertoire. It’s like experiencing an ever evolving organoleptic kaleidoscope. Finishes long and luxuriously. This loses a point on value - more expensive in Mx than the USA.

It’s a blend of tequilas aged in three types of barrels — scotch, sherry and cognac. Aged over 4 1/2 years. I detect light cooked agave, dark fruit, oak, dark chocolate, worn leather and unfiltered honey. I taste the cooked agave, cinnamon, dulce de leche, American whiskey and scotch, oak char, plump fruit, black pepper and some light honey. The finish is excellent. This is a complex tequila. Maybe the most complex I’ve had. It has a good mouth feel. The flavors linger even though there is some dryness to it. It’s 86 proof but you can’t tell because there is no alcohol burn. It stays on your pallet for several minutes, that’s a bonus! It’s expensive but I think it’s worth it even if it’s only to ever have just one bottle. It is a one liter bottle.

Tears is absolutely phenomenal in the way German uses 3 different barrels and then blends them all together after they sit in separate barrels for up to 5 years. There's levels and levels of flavors and aromas. I think it's worth the price, and this might be the best extra anejo presently made.

I’ve always thought of this as an extension of the T1 lineup and it certainly doesn’t disappoint, TONS of agave flavour left with rich oak running up and down your tongue. This is a must have for your home collection.

A wonderful multi barrel aged blend is used to create this extra añejo and the care taken shows in every sip.

Aroma: Notes of caramel, cherry and oak. Also slight hints of leather and coffee. Flavor: An intense combination of caramel and coffee. There's a subtle hint of oak which creates a very smooth balance. Finish: Although it's slightly high proof the finish is very smooth. Not overly hot and sits in the back of your mouth.

Rich, complex aroma of oak, cherry and olive with a bit of grass or juniper. Wonderful flavor of sweet spice and almond with slight oak. The flavor is as complex as the nose and continues to evolve over time with floral, fruit and vegetal flavors. The finish is long, smooth and warm. This is fantastic. Tasted side-by-side with Crotalo Gran Reserva, Avion 44 and Diablito.

Wow. This tequila is killer, and it shows German Gonzalez's level of talent and skill. The aroma is spectacularly inviting. The flavor is rich and nutty and not too heavy with wood. The finish is long lasting, slightly dry, and has layers of complexity that evolve on the palate. I'm bummed that we only have 1 bottle.

Great aromas of hazelnut and vanilla with a too-easy-to-drink body (at 43%!) and surprisingly tingly spice finish. The only reason this didn't rare higher is price- at around $250 a bottle. But, there's only 600 bottles available!

On the nose it is clear this was a special EA. Oak, sweet, caramel, vanilla, hints of the sherry and brandy barrels we found in the initials tasting. An interesting sweetness on the pallet when dipped in a brandy/cognac glass. This is a fav for sure.

If it weren’t for how expensive this is, it would be a 93+. This is 86 proof? Absurdly easy to drink. Beautiful color. One of the best noses. Lovely spice on nose and flavor. Finish leaves interesting spice on tongue and practically no heat. You could drink this whole thing in one night.

Well, i mean, it’s delicious. It’s one of the most complex tequilas i have had and i love the depth. Flavors and notes go on and on. Nariz: Oak, melted butter, caramel, butterscotch, chocolate, dried cherries. Boca: Dried fruit, toasted nuts, brown sugar, honey. I love the layers of complexity of German’s tequila. The price is commensurate with the juice.

Aroma: when I first poured I mostly got cooked agave, barre spice, earthy notes, and some light citrus. As I let it get some air the caramel, fruit, and vanilla notes started to stand out more. Taste: loads of cooked agave up front, then fruity, caramel, oak, and smokey flavors layered on top of a nutty earth flavor that is there but not overpowering. Anyone who enjoys tequila, whisky, or scotch should be able to find something they enjoy in this one.

Excellent XA! Aged 5 years in separate used scotch, sherry, and brandy barrels before blending. Plenty of layers to this one. Great for whiskey drinkers and cigar smokers.
