Product: Iwan Ries Three Star Blue 7oz
I can see why this is one of their best selling custom blends. Perfect balance among its many elements with a very pleasant room note that the ladies enjoy. Medium strength, no burn and wonderful, minimum effort burn. At this price it’s a winner by... Read More

I like the low moisture content, truly one of a kind smoke.
A Nice Change

I generally hate aromatics but lately I've been coming around. This is very subtle but I like the flavor no matter that I cannot identify the taste. Has been tasty in 4 different pipes so I'll likely keep a pouch around.
So good!!

The taste is unrealistic, highly recommended
Best Seller for a Reason

Product: Iwan Ries Three Star Blue 1.5oz
This is a daily smoke for me, no matter what else is in the rotation. It's what little Burley seedlings dream of being on Career Day in Kentucky Kindergarten. Incredibly smooth, toasty yet rich, it's a classic that's never dated.

For an aromatic,this is really first rate.Good for a morning smoke,and really still the way I remember it back when I first purchased some back in the early 90’s in Florida back when drug stores still carried a better selection than they do today.I r... Read More
What is this?...I think I get it!

Product: Iwan Ries Three Star Blue 1.5oz
Nice smell, visually it looks like light colored fine wood chips mixed with darker tobaccos of various cuts. The taste is typical aromatic at first light but quickly dissipates to a flat tasting burley. I note no Virginia or other tobacco at all. S... Read More
Every day smoke

Product: Iwan Ries Three Star Blue 7oz
This is good stuff. I am going to put this in my daily all day smoke category. If you are looking for an all day blend give this one a try. It packs well, lights easy, no bite, good taste and room note.
Something different

Product: Iwan Ries Three Star Blue 1.5oz
My pouch arrived rather dry but it was no worse for that. The first few pipes were not anything spectacular but the blend grew on me. The Latakia was extremely subdued in both the taste and the smell, only wafting in and out. The topping was more pro... Read More
Nice!

This is a wonderful tobacco, the Latakia is just enough to add some body but not overpowering, the smell according to the wife is of baking cookies and is indoor approved!

I'm not sure what I can add that hasn't already been said about Iwan Ries' Three Star Blue so much of this will cover well trodden ground. Three Star Blue is a wonderful and original tasting tobacco. It's somewhat English, somewhat aromatic (in a goo... Read More

What is a 5-star anyways?

Product: Iwan Ries Three Star Blue 7oz
If I hadn't purchased my first pouch from the store in Chicago I would have never given it a chance because usually Sutfliff and I don't get along. It's not a matter of smoking too quickly or any user error - just the slightest puff of anything Sutl... Read More
Hot,,

Product: Iwan Ries Three Star Blue 7oz
One of the hottest burning tobacco blends I’ve ever loaded in a pipe. If you slow down it goes out, speed up a pinch and you’ll be drinking butter milk to heal the burn. It has a somewhat nice aroma, or is that the briar wood of my pipe burning.
Not my cup of tea

If you're going to review something, refrain from saying "well if you're a real pipe smoker, you'll like this". No, this hobby is all about enjoyment. If you want to buy a ton of pipes, and grumble over the nuances of this blend vs that blend, well..... Read More
Intriguing, but...

Product: Iwan Ries Three Star Blue 7oz
This is at once an intriguing but frustrating tobacco. I'm a few bowls into the tin and still don't know what to make of it. First, the tin note is very unique. Think grape soda. The tobacco was a little on the dry side right out of the tin, but look... Read More
