    I just received a pipe from Iwan Ries & Co., they sent a free 1.5oz. box of IRC Three Star Blue tobacco with it, Who has tried and what did you think of it? I have not opened it yet and what to get some opinions about it as it gets mixed reviews.

    It tasted like a Mixture #79 knockoff to me when I tried it about 40 years ago.

    I tried it. All I remember is that it bit me like a rabid pit bull.

    So the three star Blue has both perique and latakia. I'd try it if I were you. Ya just never know...

    Keep it to trade to someone you hate. Nuff said.

    They sent a free sample. Took one drag and threw it away.

    I tried it once. One of the pastors at my church only smokes that blend, so another got that to try it.

    I don't remember how I felt about it, because I didn't really know how to smoke very well and only smoked aros at the time.

    I say light it up. If you like it, keep it. If not, send it to someone. I know I have some friends that have wanted to try it "because it's what Wayne smokes."

    They sent me a free sample too and, honestly, it ain't bad. It is VERY similar to Smoker's Pride Vanilla Cavendish. Of the two, I'll stick with the SP, cheaper and locally available.
