As the second third begins, a light, dry earth joins the profile. At a half inch in, some baking spice joins and mixes with the black pepper for an interesting combination. At three quarters of an inch in, the toast level picks up a bit. The retrohale is now toasted cedar and dry earth with light black pepper. At an inch and a quarter, the creaminess has left. As the third comes to a close, the profile is toasted cedar up front with dry earth not far behind and the pepper/baking spice mix a bit further behind. The strength in this third bumped up to slightly below medium.
