Re: is money the only factor or not?
I think Nakhla is more traditional and original. It comes out of Egypt so you know that it's going to be good because it actually supplies the Arab world as well as the rest of the world with real, traditional, good quality hookah tobacco.
Seems to me that SB just kinda picked up on the hookah trend, learned how to make shisha tobacco with some Tobacco they bought from KY, slapped a heavy price on it and presented it as the new thing.
It seems like the modern style Tobacco, whereas Nakhla is the traditional one, like I said.
Guess I'm just more of a traditional guy....
