Alec Bradley Filthy Hooligan Returns, Along With New Shamrock

Alec Bradley Filthy Hooligan Returns, Along With New Shamrock
Black Market Shamrock is covered in not one, not two, but three different wrappers.

Alec Bradley’s annual St. Patrick’s Day cigar, the Black Market Filthy Hooligan, is back. The barber-pole cigar began shipping to stores today along with another limited cigar called the Black Market Shamrock, which is covered in three different wrappers, a rarity in the cigar industry.

This will now be the sixth straight year that Alec Bradley fans will be able to purchase the Black Market Filthy Hooligan, a Toro measuring 6 inches by 50 ring gauge that’s draped in Honduran candela cover leaf intertwined with Nicaraguan tobacco from Jalapa. Both the binder (Ecuador Sumatra) and filler (Panama and Honduras) remain the same, too. 

Like in past years, Black Market Filthy Hooligan comes packed in 22-count boxes that are painted in green and black stripes. The 2019 version of Filthy Hooligan carries a suggested retail price of $9.50, and only 2,000 boxes have been produced.

Joining Filthy Hooligan this year is Black Market Shamrock, whose dimensions also measure 6 inches by 50 ring gauge. What sets Shamrock apart from Filthy Hooligan, and other barber-pole cigars, is that it’s covered in not one, not two, but three different wrapper leaves: candela, Habano maduro and Habano seco. All three were grown in Honduras.

Alec Bradley would not divulge the binder and filler details for Shamrock, but the company did say that it will retail for $11.95 per cigar and comes in boxes of 10. Only 500 boxes were created.

Both Filthy Hooligan and Shamrock were rolled at Plasencia's Tabacos de Oriente S.A. factory in Honduras.
