As the cigar progresses into the second third, the dark chocolate notes remain prominent, joined by a subtle creaminess. Hints of coffee and cedar wood surface, creating a well-rounded and balanced profile. The pepper spice remains present but subdued, providing a pleasant counterpoint to the sweetness.
