As the second third begins, the baking spice and mustiness both pick up a bit. At a half inch in, the toasted cedar transitions to toasted oak. At three quarters of an inch in, the earth increases and the baking spice transitions to black pepper. The retrohale is now toasted oak, earth and mild black pepper. As the third comes to a close, the profile is toasted oak and earth up front with black pepper in the middle and light mustiness in the background. The strength has bumped up to medium.
