The second third loses out on the milk cream, and is mainly centered around cocoa, barnyard, tapered black pepper, slightly gritty and dry earth. On and off notes of milk coffee is tasted, a note I wish was more consistent. The retrohale is still the same with deeper notes of black pepper, cocoa and sharp cedar. The finish is also the same, still providing medium length notes of wood bitterness and dry oak. Body and strength maintains it’s medium stride.
