As the second third begins, a little baking spice jumps in to mix with the earthiness, cocoa and cream. At a quarter inch in, some general woodiness joins in which knocks out the dryness of the earthy note and brings the profile together quite a bit. The wood note is also present on the retrohale which is a slightly smoother and more refined version of the mouth flavors. At an inch in, some wood bitterness and char join the wood and earthiness as the cocoa, cream and baking spice have left the profile. At an inch and a quarter, some cream comes back which pushes out the wood bitterness. As the third comes to a close, the profile consists of slightly charred wood, earthiness and cream. The strength in this third remained at medium.
