As the third begins, the toasted wood, slight cream, pepper and vegetal notes continue on, but the profile is becoming a bit dry. At a quarter inch in, the cream and pepper have left and the toasted wood, now more defined as oak and slight vegetal notes are what remain. The retrohale carries a musty oak note. At an inch and a quarter, some cream starts to pop in from time to time. As the third comes to a close, the toasted oak and slight vegetal note continue as the profile increases a bit in dryness. The strength in this third was right at medium.
