As the second third begins, the buttery note and nuttiness go away and a slight cream joins in with a wood that is slightly green now. At a half inch in, the greenness goes away and a slight char joins the wood while the cream remains in the background. The retrohale is the same slightly charred oak note. As the third comes to a close, the cream increases while the charred wood note continues. The strength in this third remained at slightly above medium.
