    Product Description

    Tears of Llorona Extra Anejo Tequila is a rare, small batch, extra anejo Tequila, aged five years in oak barrels that have previously held scotch, sherry, and brandy. This unique triple barreling and extra-long aging create a complex, layered fusion more like a cognac or a very old whiskey, yet it retains clear agave notes. Master Distiller German Gonzalez harvests only high-altitude, late-season blue agaves from the volcanoes in Jalisco, known for their high sugar content. It is called "the Pappy Van Winkle of Tequila" by Food & Wine Magazine and "the tequila that will turn a whiskey lovers head" by The Wall Street Journal.

    German Gonzalez is considered by aficionados and critics to be one of the best master tequileros alive. Making tequila has been a generational family passion for German. He was taught his craft by his father, Guillermo Gonzalez Diaz Lombardo, with whom he worked on what is now considered the first true super-premium tequila to be imported to the United States, the Chinaco tequila from early 1990s fame as well as the inspiration for today's handcrafted tequilas.

    German's father was taught by his father, and so on, going back generations. Indeed, if you go back through German's direct family line, you arrive at General Manuel Gonzalez, President of Mexico from 1880 to 1884. In fact, General Gonzalez is one of the most compelling figures in Mexican history.

    Tasting Notes

    Aroma: Let it breathe. Swirl it in the glass and choose your glassware carefully because this is an experience for all five senses: the deep amber, the lingering nose, the feel of the legs on the glass, the conversation that ensues, and, of course, the unforgettable taste.

    Palate: Bouquet of black cherries, vanilla, honeysuckle, and apples, leading to notes of chocolate, toffee, and creme brulee on the palate.

    Finish: The finish is spicy and elegant, with notes of cinnamon and cloves balanced by sweeter touches of raisins, caramel, and oak.
