As the second third begins, the spicy cedar, cream and dry earthiness are all at equal levels creating a nice profile depth. At three quarters of an inch in, a mustiness joins in. At an inch and a quarter, the cream, dry earthiness and mustiness are at equal levels up front while the spicy cedar is in the background. The retrohale is a complete reverse with the spicy cedar up front. As the third comes to a close, the cedar loses the spiciness and gains some char and moves up to the front. In the background, the cream has dropped out and the mustiness and dry earth remain. The strength in this third bumped up to slightly below medium.
