Nakhla, Layalina and Al Fahker are the most popular and the highest grade. However i have not tried Al Amir, Al Waha or Havana. Those are the most well known ones that i can think of off the top of my head. Why?

Here in Israel, ALL they sell is Nakhla. I've seen maybe ONE store that carries other brands (and that was Al-Waha anyway :P)
Also, stores carry some local tobacco (no label), which is a bit more expensive, but very juicy and very good

Its always alfakher or alnakhla around here in Abu Dhabi. my brother tells me some stores carry some other brands but I've yet to check myself. last night I went to shop for more flavors but only found AF and nakhla.. and some mix the store carried in silver bags (grapes only). I'm checking stores in Dubai over the weekend -- wish I could find starbuzz here, I'd be over the moon! lol.

Nakhla and Nakhla Mizo are pretty much the ones smoked everywhere in Egypt. There is also Al Fakher. I have to completely disagree on the Layalina part, it is not high grade tobacco and is probably one of the worst tasting tobacco ever created.

No Label!!!!
I want to hear more about these tobaccos. Those are probably the ones that are best.

here in israel the top selling (at least in the north) is made in kfar yasif, they are the largest importers of nakhla and they make unbeliveable apple and watermelon, which i reviewed. The best i tried. Other than that, the known brands are nakhla, some al waha and al-masah, which is pretty lame but super wet.

In Lithuania, near Baltic sea mostly nakhla, but just because people wouldn't buy better ones... In canada mostly nakhla cause no stores carry anything else...

As far as "packaged" brands go, Nakhla, Salloum and Alfakher. Double Apple is the most popular choice, Lemon Mint is second however the majority of the shops mix their own flavors and sell it by the weight. Its really cheap (about $3) for 250-300G tub. Also, coffee shops and hookah lounges have their own private shisha that they serve. Nobody ever heard of the Starbuzz or even locally produced labels like Fusion and others that are made for export to the US.

Hey,
Im from Brazil too, didnt know that there were brazillians here. Glad to see you. Could you pm me with your msn?

yeah al fakher is getting pretty hard to find. Making Nakhla the only great brand available in the country. But on the other hand, you can buy 50gr boxes of nakhla for R$3,50 (~US$2,00).
