In the second third, cocoa moves to the front of the flavor profile, with sweetness falling in intensity. The middle of the profile still maintains cedar at light plus. On the post draw, drying cedar steps up to medium, with bitter hay joining once the cigar has settled in. In the bottom half of the second third, the cocoa falls off, leaving hay and cedar driving the flavor profile. The second third was a step down in flavor complexity and balance when compared to the first third.
