Just over a month ahead of the holiday it commemorates, the 2017 installment of the Alec Bradley Black Market Filthy Hooligan has begun arriving at retailers.
While a representative from Alec Bradley declined to comment, this year’s version appears to be the same as last year’s: a 6 x 50 toro that uses a barber pole wrapper of a Nicaraguan leaf and a Honduran candela leaf to provide the green stripe. The binder is an Ecuadorian Sumatra while the filler comes from Panama and Honduras. It comes priced at $8.50 per cigar and comes in 22-count boxes that are produced at Tabacos de Oriente S.A. in Honduras.
Production is reported to be capped at 2,000 boxes.
This is the fifth year that Alec Bradley has released the Black Market Filthy Hooligan.
