Nose is "fun" and fruity -- apricots, apples, peaches, cherries.  Light caramel and vanilla.  Time for a sip... it's a fruit-bomb delight!!  Lots of Fruit Stripe bubblegum, and everything you'd expect from the nose.  Hints of assorted Jolly Ranchers make me feel like a kid again (no, I did not drink whisky as a kid, Mr. Funnypants). Cumin and cayenne round out the palate with light spice.  There's not great depth or even great complexity here, but what's here is really tasty.  The fruit zing is what I love the most.  B+/A-

N: Pineapple and coconut.
P: A sort of strange chalky / waxy mouth feel, all fruit and some funky spice, like nutmeg.
F: Gets piney / minty in the finish.
I've been really impressed with the old Benriachs I've tried lately, really unique fruity profiles, gotta seek out more.
