Let me start off by saying I don't smoke a pipe, I roll cigars with pipe tobacco and wraps, so my opinion may not relate exactly to the opinion of someone smoking this tobacco from a pipe. This tobacco is quite good, it has just the right amount of amaretto flavor and a very mild, smooth tobacco taste, and is quite good for rolling cigars with. The cut is a mix of smaller bits and longer cut pieces, which I like because when rolled in a cigar helps even out the burn - Tobaccos of only smaller cut pieces tend to allow the cherry to fall off unexpectedly. It combines well with both fruity and mildly flavored wraps, each combination giving a new and pleasant experience. Overall a quite good product, and I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone who rolls their own cigars.
