Alec Bradley Filthy Hooligan Returns for Fifth Year

The tradition continues. For the past five years, Alec Bradley Cigar Co. has released a limited-edition green candela cigar in honor of St. Patrick’s Day called Black Market Filthy Hooligan. This year, the company has brought back Filthy Hooligan in its popular barber pole format, draped in Honduran candela cover leaf intertwined with Nicaraguan tobacco from Jalapa. The cigars are shipping to retailers now.

Along with its eye-catching combination of wrapper tobaccos, Alec Bradley Black Market Filthy Hooligan Barber Pole contains an Ecuadoran Sumatra binder and filler leaf from Panama and Honduras. The cigar comes in one size, Toro, measuring 6 inches by 50 ring gauge, and retails for $8.75.

“We are thrilled about the popularity and staying power of the Black Market Filthy Hooligan; so much so, we get requests from consumers and retailers around the world to keep them in stock all year,” said Jonathan Lipson, director of sales and marketing for Alec Bradley. “Whenever the Hooligans come out, the support from our fans is overwhelming.”

Black Market Filthy Hooligan ships in 22-count, green-and-black striped boxes. This year, only 2,000 boxes have been produced for consumers worldwide. The cigars are rolled at Plasencia's Tabacos de Oriente S.A. factory in Honduras.
