Start of the second third gives me a good nicotine buzz, making my head a bit cloudy. Still powerful, distinctive and balanced notes of graphite minerality, palate layering black pepper, medium bodied sweet cream, cedar, rich nuttiness and bread. The retrohale is still black pepper dominant but less than the first third, being tamed slightly by the sweet cream, rich nuttiness and cedar. The finish continues to be full of sweet cream, cedar and mouth caking black pepper. Strength within the second third moves up to a medium plus while body stays at a medium.
