We’ve just received our annual allocation of Alec Bradley Black Market Filthy Hooligan cigars for 2023, just in time to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.
FILTHY HOOLIGAN BARBER POLE
This year’s Filthy Hooligan Barber Pole begins the company’s second decade of special releases of this seasonal St. Patrick’s Day treat. The cigar sports Panamanian and Honduran fillers, an Ecuadorian Sumatra Binder and dual wrapper leaves consisting of Nicaraguan Habano Maduro and Choice Honduran Candela, presented in a barber pole format. The company made 2,000 boxes of 24 cigars.
FILTHY HOOLIGAN SHAMROCK
2023 marks the fifth year the Shamrock has been released. Shamrock is a special project by Alec Bradley’s second generation, Alan Rubin’s son Bradley Rubin. This triple-wrapped barber pole kicks it’s big brother up a notch by adding a third wrapper leaf of Nicaraguan Habano Natural, for a triple-wrapped barber pole. Production of Shamrock is much more limited, with 1,500 boxes of 10 cigars released for 2023. (that’s roughly 69% less than the original for 2023.)
