Virgian is golden leaf tobacco while rustica is barker and richer in flavour. It also contains about 10-20 times more nicotine. They also dont use glycerin in Nakhla which is why it doesnt have the soappy taste all the other brands have.

BTW: all the tobacco used in moassel is washed but others much less soaked. nicotiana is almost unsmokable without being washed.
Explains a lot actually.
