    Well today I tried UF for the first time. I took one flake out let it dry for about 20 mins., then took a pair of scissors and cut it cross grain into tiny little cubes. Next I got my PETERSON DUNMORE #78 and started rubbing it out into the bowl as I loaded it up ending with a slight tamp. One char light a little tamp and then ignition. The skies cleared, trumpets blared and the gates opening up, I was in heaven. At this point I realized it was all coming together, I took my time no rushing things, didn't tamp to much and just enjoyed the experience. This is one of my greatest triumphs in piping.

    I love UF. It's my regular rotation as a diversion from English and Balkan blends. I have not found a better substitute for it. The nicotine kick is really decent and it has a subtle fragrance that just tantalizes the senses. It is sublime.

    A great tobacco, usually under rated here in Spain. I don't know why, as it a very balanced and tastefull baccy.
