As the second third begins, the complexity of the mustiness begins to subside as the wood takes on a slight char. At a quarter inch in, the char continues to build masking most of the mustiness. At a half inch in, the creaminess kicks up to stop the char from running away and balances the profile back out between the charred wood and mustiness. At an inch and a quarter, the cream drops out and the char increases again with the wood and creates a slightly drying profile. As the third comes to a close, the charred wood gains a little bitterness while there is a faint mustiness in the background. The strength in this third bumped up to slightly above medium.
