    it's hard to characterize what appears at the finish, but the overall impression spoils decently

    Dave Broom says:

    Nose
    Again, mature and quite deep. The Muscat has
    the upper hand here, adding quite solid, sturdy weight to the
    distillery’s existing light fruitiness. There’s some slightly dusty oak
    in time, and with water it blooms into a rather lovely oiliness. Becomes
    considerably more aromatic as well.

    Palate
    As with the nose, this is quite cask-forward
    with considerable spicy elements, some chocolate and some green notes
    underneath (chilli pepper/sour apple). Thicker with water, where you
    pick up more of the mace-like spiciness. Lightly structured, with some
    char.

    Finish
    Orange Pekoe tea.

    Conclusion
    This grape grows on the banks of the Dnieper
    river, close to the Black Sea. Again, ageing was for 18 months. The oak
    is also Ukrainian. Decent enough balance here, but slightly wine-heavy.

    Right place, right time
    It’s late. The wine flows gently into late-night drams.

    Score: 7,8/10

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Mannochmore 15 yo 1999/2014 (46%, Scyfion, Ukraine, muscat Dniprovskyi finish, 312 bottles)  This is probably our first bottling for Ukraine! And I need to add that we haven’t tasted many Mannochmores (of Loch Dhu fame), and neither have we tried many muscat finishes. So, this is a genuine first. Colour: gold. Nose: this feeling of entering an old wine cellar, with whiffs of mushrooms, old oak, saltpetre, gravel… And yet it’s not totally musty, not at all, especially since notes of sweet white wine do emerge indeed. Even if to be honest, I wouldn’t recognise Muscat. Rather sweet pinot gris, in fact (late harvest). With water: becomes cake-y, which is great. Orange cake, apple cake, apricot pie. It never gets heady. Mouth (neat): it reminds of Glenmorangie’s older Sauternes finish (a 1981) that I had found quite excellent. Notes of apricot jam, roasted peanuts, chamomile tea… The good news is that we remain ‘around’ malt whisky. Some tart oranges as well. With water: really good! Musty oranges – much better than that sounds. Mirabelles. Finish: rather long, very sweet but not sugary. Wine gums. A leafiness in the aftertaste, cherry stems, buds… Comments: I was scared; I was wrong. Sweet wines, when not used ‘excessively’, may really work. SGP:651 - 86 points.
