As the second third begins, the black pepper lightens up a bit, letting the musty, toasted cedar shine a bit more. The retrohale remains an even mix of toasted cedar and black pepper. At an inch in, the toast level has become pretty heavy and the black pepper has a very long finish. As the third comes to a close, the heavily toasted cedar with light mustiness is a fair bit ahead of the black pepper. The strength remains at medium.
