Anyone tried Iwan Ries pipe tobaccos? What did you think?

I haven't tried their house blends- but I'm on the "call list" for a few Dan blends with them and they are very nice to work with. A+ for customer service at least. :nod:

Their house blends are fairly expensive; their "Gourmet English" is $62.50/lb. Most of the other blends run about $42/lb. They sell their tobacco in 7 oz foil packs, not in the traditional way. I bought some pipes from them back in the early 80's and bought some of their 3-Star Blue, an aromatic. But I've never tried their other blends.

If I remember correctly, they have a sampler in the $20 range which has 1 or 1.5oz samples.

Yep, $22.50 for four 1.5 oz. samples.
