Default Nakhla Light Apple

What exactly is nakhla "Light Apple"?

Is it Esk. Apple? Is it Nakhla's Silver Apple?

It isn't listed on their site, and is only available from H-S in a Jar. I want to maybe purchase it, but not if it is their Esk. Apple.

Anyone know?

me as well, and I didn't see that.. crap. But they always re-stock every once in awhile so Maybe I'll have to get it when it is available. After hearing what the Esk. Apple is like, I don't want to take my chances.

Only Nakhla is sold in jars. Nakhla Basha does not, but here Nakhla jar costs double as much as a carton

it could be just the reg. apple. Which may be considered light compared to the DA? just a guess. I know the Esk. apple isn't availiable in the US.

I have heard several times that the Nakhla in jars is supposedly a different recipe then what is packed in the box. I have wondered if it's true but I'm not curious enough to pay double. My guess is that it's all apocryphal.

Sorry but that is not entirely correct. I picked this batch up at a market here in Dallas and they have plenty of El Basha in jars. Or rather they did when I bought my grape and strawberry.

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.

ve had the tins that Kwikwi posted before in el basha grape and strawberry.. I had them in lemon.. and I would say they are not authentic.. First of all they were 0.5% nicotine which I think is wrong for the el basha series cus as Ive understand it they were supposed to be 0.05% nicotine?
and second.. They tasted really bad.. I throwed the cans away..

I just got a box of El Basha grape and it is marked 0.5% and I'm sure it is authentic.

Thanks for showing me why I like HP so much. This is the sort of thing I want to know but can't find out anywhere else. I suppose i'll have to shell out for the higher prices of jared Nahkla.

As to price I that in large measure it's based on what the local market can bare and of course, excise taxes/tarrifs. Clearly Egypt has a much lower per capita income then the U.S. (although not for long it seems) so the distributors/vendors charge what they think they can get away with.

taxes and shipping do play a huge role in it though, just look at the US, tobacco products range a lot, marborls are like 3.50 and skoal is about 4.50 from my home town in va where as up in mass your paying 8-9 bucks for each of those.

shipping across the atlantic is going to be a big part of it too plus if course there are going to be huge fees for import and export with tobacco in the amount.

Here is Nakhlas website link showing El Basha in a 250 jar.
http://www.nakhla.com/ProductDetails.aspx?PID=41

Just for those who may still have a doubt it was ever in a jar. Both the strawberry and grape were good, it's Nakhla why wouldn't it be? Grape was a candy/soda flavor but good.

It was like grape soda, or Jolly Ranchers. Get a fresh 50gr of it and try. It was good.

Sorry. I was reading the post from work, which blocks almost every photo sharing provider such as photobucket and the such, hence I saw no pics.

Exactly, also besides the per capita income, the supply chain within Egypt is shorter (Factory is in Monofeyya, less than 150 KM north of Cairo, no import/export duties ...etc.) and tobacco change hands from factory to smoker much less than it does to the export markets.
