The second third continues on with the cream, wood, hay and mild black pepper. At a half inch in, the wood gains a toast note to it as it has the lead over the hay and cream. The black pepper is still faint but continues with a long finish. At an inch in, the toasted wood (now more defined as oak) gains some char and remains up front while the cream and hay are faint in the background matched up evenly with the black pepper. The retrohale has charred oak and a light cream. As the third comes to a close, the cream and black pepper increase and are slightly behind the charred oak. The strength in this third bumped up to slightly below medium.
