As the second third begins, the cream increases slightly as the char disappears from the wood. At three quarters of an inch in, a slight bitterness joins the profile of wood, cream and baking spice. The retrohale carries a creamier version of this same profile but no bitterness. At an inch and a half, the bitterness begins to increase, becoming even with the wood while the cream and baking spice are very faint in the background. As the third comes to a close, the bitterness has settled way down while the wood and cream are now up front and the baking spice has left the profile. The strength in this third bumped up to medium.
