Are you sure it is authentic? Pics?

Yes it is. Nakhla DA in glass jars is wetter and more flavorful than cartons. Remember, Nakhla was my absolute exclusive smoke for 9 years. Never tried tin cans but heard they are same as jars. By double I mean double its price here. Nakhla sells here for 60 cents and Nakhla jars sell for $1.2. I guess the high markup in the US/Europe for Nakhla is due to export duties in Egypt, import duties in the other country, shipping, local distributor's margin ....etc, and hence I guess the jar - if it exists - would not be double the price in the US/Europe. I guess it would be one or two dollars higher and that is it.
