Nose: agave forward / has champagne sweetness/ bright floral / vanilla/ caramel/ pear / plum/ flowers / maple - a very sophisticated group of scents Flavor: sweet agave / vanilla/ caramels/ cherry / grape / orange peel / white pepper / Baking spices / Finish: long lasting slightly minty / vanilla as long staying flavor Sometimes the final score isn’t fully indicative of how much enjoyment I get from Tears of Llorona. There’s some X factor that makes this tequila special beyond its TMM score. It calls to me….the taste, the experience the X factor gives, and it simply has the best name in the business!

The aroma, while initially inviting, lacks complexity with its soft caramel, light oak, and light molasses. The faint minerality, brandy, light ethyl, trace vanilla and whiskey tone, though potent, do little to elevate the profile beyond a basic interpretation. The palate, however, offers a more gourmand experience. Soft earth, oak and cooked agave raisin note provide a foundation, accented by light pepperiness and butterscotch. Subtle notes of cocoa, sweet cognac, dark cherry, cooked sweet potato, soft sarsaparilla, peppermint, cinnamon, and delicious minerality are well-integrated, creating a balanced and piquant flavor profile that induces salivation. The finish is distinct, with soft light smoke and faint ash, pepperiness, salinity, molasses, and oak, providing a satisfying albeit short lived conclusion.

I’m a blanco guy, so XAs don’t top my lists. That being said Tears is a beautiful juice, complex in its flavor and gorgeous in my glass. Deep and balanced, and a powerful force that pours from your glass. Cognac and sherry is the bedrock of this tequila that caramel, wood, and anise lay. Unfortunately for me the agave is lost in the mix. If it was there I missed it, possibly over powered by this powerful punch of a drink. I don’t smoke, but I imagine this would pair beautifully with a cigar.

nose is amazing - vanilla, caramel, cinnamon, fruity, some barrel notes. palate - some vanilla, cinamon, sherry notes. finish is medium and dry, assume from the sherry

One of the best XAs out there on many levels. Each release varies slightly on the nose and palate. The Diamond release like the rest is agave forward, followed by cherry, berries, figs, dried apricot and pineapple, citrus, cinnamon, sweet smoky oak, nutty, minerals, etc.. very complex and ever changing linger. Proper XA.

Wow this is extremely complex. Pettiness upfront with agave then it literally changes every 5-8min. Wow. Very nice.

Aroma: A pleasant blend of oak, cooked agave, caramel, and vanilla. Taste: Vanilla and caramel across the pallet, mixed with sweet cooked agave and dried apricot. Finish: Cooked agave and dried apricot, with the same notes of caramel, oak, and vanilla present throughout. Lingering taste coupled with a nice dryness, one can taste the alcohol but the bite is almost non-existent. Overall: An amazingly good extra añejo, one of the best without question.

Aroma is of apple, agave, and wood. Faint caramel and licorice. Taste is a beautiful balance of agave, wood, and a medley of fruit and herbs. The wood is subdued just enough and really accents all of the characters of the juice. Well crafted, great XA!

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.

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.

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.

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.

Great NOM, uniqueness of blending three distinctive barrel choice. This is definitely the scotch or brandy drinkers XA. Liter bottle, pricey, but with the angel’s share over 4 yrs of aging, it’s priced right.

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!
