As the second third begins, the baking spice is quite mellow and the dark earth is showing a very long finish. The retrohale remains wood and toasted earth. At an inch in, the baking spice has transitioned to a mild, dull black pepper with a long finish. As the third comes to a close, the wood has gained a char note as the dark earth remains even with it and the dull black pepper remains in the background. The strength in this third bumped up to medium.
