As this third begins, a bit of minerality has made its way in to the mouth to mix with the earthiness and wood. Some creaminess is also beginning to come in to play. A little bit of sweetness comes into this complex mix of earthiness, wood, minerality and cream. The retrohale is now primarily a light dry wood. About an inch in, the flavors settle down to wood, minerality and slightly sweet cream with the earthiness going away. A little further in and the sweetness is now present on the retrohale along with the woodiness. Half way into the third, a bit of char is mixing with the woodiness, which is more defined now as oak, and cream. The oak is also the dominant flavor on the retrohale. At about an inch and a half in, the char goes away and it is primarily oak and cream. A little further in and the char returns. The minerality also returns to the retrohale. Nearing the end of the third, the retrohale has become very mellow with light oak and creaminess. The strength in this third remains slightly above medium.
