This year's Alec Bradley Filthy Hooligan has two varieties, each with an assortment of wrapper leaves.

As we draw closer to St. Patrick’s Day, the color green starts to sprout, and cigar shops are no exception. Alec Bradley’s annual release of the Black Market Filthy Hooligan and Filthy Hooligan Shamrock will begin shipping this Monday. Retailers can expect the cigars to start arriving by February 18.

Both cigars measure 6 inches by 50 ring gauge and share the same interior blend: an Ecuador Sumatra binder and fillers from Panama and Honduras. What distinguishes the two cigars are the wrappers: The Barber Pole is a twisting of two wrappers—one Nicaraguan Habano and the other bright green candela—while the Shamrock is triple-wrapped with Nicaraguan Habano, maduro Nicaraguan Habano and a green leaf of candela.

The cigars were available for presale in August in runs of 2,000 boxes of 24 for the Filthy Hooligan Barber Pole and 1,500 boxes of 10 for the Filthy Hooligan Shamrock. The cigars have suggested retail prices of $11.15 and $13.25 respectively, before taxes. Both are produced at Tabacos de Oriente in Danlí, Honduras. 

To get further into the spirit, Alec Bradley is offering Filthy Hooligan limited-edition t-shirts through Alec Bradley’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts starting today.
