As the second third begins, the wood isn’t so green anymore and some bitterness has settled into the profile. At a quarter inch in, the young/green note returns, which carries some bitterness as well. At three quarters of an inch in, the profile moves away from the young wood and more towards the charred version with some bitterness. At an inch in, the bitterness really takes over and the wood is just an afterthought in the background. As the third comes to a close, the bitterness settles down and becomes even with the wood. The strength in this third was slightly above medium.
