As the second third begins, the earth becomes very heavy and dark and has a slight lead over the dark wood while the mustiness and black pepper are a bit behind. At a half inch in, the dark wood and dark earth are even and the wood has gained a decent level of toast to it. The overall profile is becoming a bit dry. The retrohale is a dry mix of wood, earth and light mustiness. As the third comes to a close, the wood now has a heavy toast as the black pepper is light in the background. The strength remains at slightly above medium.
