As the second third begins, toasted oak remains up front, with the cream the next prominent flavor. The red pepper has transitioned to a mild black pepper. At a quarter inch in, a very faint meatiness is detectable in the profile. At three quarters of an inch in, the toasted oak transitions to a slightly bright pine note while there is still some creamy and meaty notes in the background. The retrohale carries a mellower version of the slightly bright pine. At an inch and a half in, the pine isn’t quite as bright as earlier. There is still a slight cream present, but the meatiness has gone away. As the third comes to a close, the toasted oak is trying to fight it’s way back in to the profile, but the pine isn’t quite letting up. The strength has bumped up to mild-medium.
