We're dealing with a really cool, unique whisky here.  The nose is green apple Jolly Ranchers, with caramel (caramel apples!).  Amazingly, this continues 100% into the palate, where you can taste that green-apple-martini/candy thing (or some assortment of crazy fruits) with medium-to-rich sweetness.  And it holds up pretty well.  The finish is long-ish, and it turns slightly bitter here with heat, but in a manageable amount.  Delicious!
