Plainly and simply, this is RYO cigarette tobacco masquerading as pipe tobacco. However, one can smoke it out of a pipe, and that is exactly what I did.
Though this is supposedly a Virginia and burley blend, I detect only burley. (In fairness, unless I'm smoking a straight Virginia, I never notice its presence.) It's cut small enough that it should fill even the smallest of pipes pretty easily. When fresh, it isn't a horrible smoke.
The sample I just finished, however, had been sitting in its bag, neglected, for over a year.
I packed a full bowl, and got it going after one relight. Less than ten minutes passed before it died. It was so stale and harsh I didn't bother to relight it. The taste was roughly akin to that of an unfiltered Lucky Strike (or maybe an unfiltered Pall Mall); I don't recall such a taste when thr tobacco was fresh. The nicotine hit almost had my eyeballs swimming around in their sockets.
Perhaps, like me, this Good Stuff just didn't age well. I would suggest that if one must buy this stuff, it should be placed in a glass jar for long-term storage.
For what it is, Good Stuff isn't terrible. But unless you're on an extremely tight budget, there are better alternatives for your pipe-smoking enjoyment.

After doing some research on google on top ranked pipe tobacco. I saw this came in 2nd place. The stores around me and even in 2 different towns did not carry this. I finally found a citgo gas station in 1 of the towns that carried it. $14.99 for a large bag and $7.99 for a small bag. Then recently found a tobacco store opened and selling this brand. Then asked the manager of the little store next to our house to look in to selling this brand and a week later. they started selling it. $13.99 for a big bag. ANYWAYS, here is my review.
