The last third’s profile is less dry, with namely an interplay of cream and dry wood. Leather moves to the forefront as well, but the remaining aforementioned flavors become quite distant. The retrohale is still the same, giving strong black pepper, creamed mixed nuts and sharp cedar. The finish becomes more muted, with mainly faint black pepper and creamed dry wood. Strength moves to medium-full, and body stays at the medium mark.
