As this is a thicker cut, plug version of Byronic Slices, this review is similar to the latter, with a couple variations. The stoved, matured red Virginias provide a burst of tangy stewed, fermented ripe dark fruit, earth, wood, sugar, some bread, mild tart and tangy citrus, light vegetative grass, vinegar, and spice with touches of smoke, cream and floralness. The strength and taste levels just miss the medium mark by a hair. The nic-hit is a tad less potent than that. There’s no chance of bite or harshness, and has few small rough notes. This plug version needs a little more dry time than the Slices, and takes more time to prepare. Burns cool, clean, and rather slow with a very consistent sugary, tangy, fruity rich flavor that translates to the pleasantly lingering after taste and room note. Leaves a tad more moisture in the bowl, and requires a couple more relights than the Slices. It’s a notch sweeter, smoother, fermented and refined than the Slices are. Despite the deep flavor, it can almost be an all day smoke.
