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

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!

Got a 1 oz pour at a bar, I’m sure it has some evaporation, but still taste delicious. Will buy a bottle and rerate

Delicous. Really opens up on the palate. Beautifully balanced, but has a nice dryness for how present the agave is

I had read wonderful reviews about this Extra Añejo and they were all true. Agave, oak, caramel, and butterscotch dance around the nose. Beautiful color and viscosity. Citrus, oak, agave, anise , cinnamon and pepper on the palate. Are enjoyed in every sip. I will always have a bottle of Tears on standby in my home. It's a tequila to be shared with friends to experience the authenticity, art art and integrity of the way it's made.

Undoubtedly an incredible, quality sipper. I'm excited to share with all my Bourbon/Scotch/Whiskey sippin' friends who don't believe there's a tequila out there for them! Notes of Cherry, Vanilla, Oak, with some Smoke and Leather shining through. The sherry, cognac, and scotch cask/barrel aging methods all really pop here. For me, the one thing that dials back the rating is personal preference. I find myself yearning for more of an Agave presence that seems to get lost among all the barrel aged-in flavors.

Compared with Rey Sol 10yr and G4 5yr. Tears: Color is caramel Not much of a nose really. Moderate nose of chemical citrus rot? Taste - very different from the others. Peat is present with notes of black tea, peaches and some smoke. A nice molasses envelopes the cooked agave throughout.

Aroma - barrel spices, clove, vanilla, oak, agave Flavor - oak, vanilla, roast agave, caramel Finish - flavors stick around especially vanilla on my pallet

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!

This one is something. Heavy aromas of peat mixed with pear, apples and dried fruit sweetness coming from the Brandy and scotch barrels. Texture is pure silk. Flavor profile is through the roof. More delicious fruit, banana, oak, peat, coconut that lingers and begs you to keep sipping. This one is special. Savor it.

Aroma: cooked agave, smoke, vanilla, oak, caramel, cinnamon, fruity, alcohol. Flavor: smooth agave and smoky opening, followed by fruity, vanilla, oak, caramel with a hint of cinnamon. Finish: smooth agave, smoky, oak aftertaste that stays with you Opinion: Knot Batch a bit dryer but with beautiful aroma, dark color, high legs, clean, smooth and complex, non burning tequila after taste, balanced. Bottom line, I will definitely drink it again.

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 sipped from a brandy/cognac glass. This is a new fav for sure.
