      Freshly poured, you get stormy, light polish, some leather, clear mineral notes, sherry and a little sweetness with a little maggi. Dark chocolate and something meaty again. After adding a few drops of water, the Mars II becomes significantly rounder and sweeter, and some fruit is added. Changes completely and is very interesting. Later I have nice milk chocolate and sweetness.

      Intense, strongly engaging and warming, the taste has more sweetness to offer than the nose, something dark, earthy again. It completely covers the palate and lets it work. Here the sherry dominates, caramel clearly more and also here it becomes very easy to drink with the addition of water, a few drops are enough. It gets more and more massive and you can't get away.

      You've had some of that for a while, intense, warming with sherry and a fruit component in the finish.
