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.

Very complex. Flavors and aromas if agave, oak, vanilla and nuts. Pricey
