Thumbs down Nakhla Double Apple bought out?

Does anyone know why the price of Nakhla went up? My salesperson says it got bought out by a Japanese company. Is there any truth behind that bc the price has almost doubles per kilo!

Nakhla WAS purchased by JTI..... in 2012. My wholesale cost on Nakhla went up negligibly in the last couple years following the acquisition.

If your local stores charging the same as Star Yuck, theyre a bunch of unscrupulous whores or their too ignorant to purchase it from the best source.

Yeah, the problem with kilos is if theyre not buying it direct from Karabetian the US distributor and are buying it from somewhere like Hookah Wholesalers, their cost is going to be much higher. Essentially theyre paying 35 bucks a kilo just like u can online .
