As the second third begins, the cedar remains aged, but the sweet component has left. The dry earth is now quite faint. At three quarters of an inch, the dry earth has picked back up as the spiciness of the cedar has also increased. The retrohale has the cedar and dry earth up front with the mustiness right behind. At an inch and a half, the dry earth has the lead with the cedar and mustiness even in the background. As the third comes to a close, all of the components are now even. The strength in this third bumped up to slightly below medium.
