As the second third begins, the cedar becomes a bit darker while the spice and cream remain at their previous levels. At a half inch in, the cedar transitions to more of a general wood note. At an inch in, some mustiness joins the mix of wood, cream and spice. The retrohale provides creamy wood with an elevated spice level. As the third comes to a close, the cream has increased a bit to become even with the wood. The strength in this third was slightly above medium.
