Second thirds flavor profile continues to be one that is namely sweet, spicy and earthy. Further, the profile in general does a better job of melding together. Continuous flavors of burnt caramel sweetness, dry biscuits, leather, hay, dry roasted cashews, coffee and black tea. The black pepper is no longer caking my tongue, instead, it has moved towards the rear palate. About a quarter inch in, the strength ramps up to a medium full, giving me a slight cloudy head. On the retrohale, nasal clearing black pepper, rich cedar and toasted nuttiness. The finish consists of toasted nuttiness, black tea, cedar, airy bread, slight black pepper on the backdrop. By the end of the second third, strength is at a medium plus while body stays at a medium.
