With a color of polished antique gold, the Deviator is pungent with aromas of honeysuckle, calymyrna fig, and subtle bright citrus notes, leading into a saturating full-bodied mouthfeel that slathers the palate in ripe apricot and citron oil. The powerful finish lingers pleasantly for over a minute.
