As the second third begins, the equal amounts of wood and cream along with a mild black pepper continues. At a half inch in, a slight char joins with the wood while the cream remains at an even level. Just before the inch mark, a mild wintergreen note joins the profile of charred wood, cream and slight black pepper. The retrohale also carries the charred wood and wintergreen note. As quickly as the wintergreen note appeared, it left the profile. At an inch and a quarter, the char begins to increase slightly. As the second third comes to a close, the profile is charred wood with a slight creaminess and the black pepper has left the profile. The strength in this third bumped up to right at medium.
