TEARS OF LLORONA EXTRA ANEJO TEQUILA

Tears of Llorona is an extra extra anejo tequila. It begins as 100% blue agaves from high volcanic slopes in Jalisco, where growth is slow. Master Tequilero German Gonzalez hand selects the agaves and has them harvested late, increasing their starch and sugars. The pinas are roasted slowly in the traditional way. His yeast is proprietary and fermentation is slow. Distillation is by copper pot still and barreling is at very high specific gravity.

Tears is aged in three different barrels -- oak that has previously held scotch, sherry, and brandy -- and brought together in very small batches to create a complex fusion that is more like a cognac than a tequila. German then bottles at 43% specific gravity to balance the flavors. This results in a very high rate of osmotic loss - the "angel's tears" that are one reason for the name, Tears of Llorona.

DISTRIBUTORS NOTES:
Each cask is hand selected and blended in ultra small batches. While I tend to lean away from older tequila (because I don't care what anyone says, it often doesn't taste very good), this is the perfect example of how over-aged agave spirit can be done right. The higher proof keeps it structured and the powerful agave flavors balance the rich oak and spice perfectly. Clearly, this is the work of a true master.
