Alec Bradley has announced that its annual St. Patrick’s Day cigar, the Black Market Filthy Hooligan, is back for 2018 and currently en route to retailers.
The cigar’s fifth release features the familiar barber pole design, with a bright green candela wrapper contrasted by a cocoa colored Nicaraguan wrapper grown in the country’s Jalapa region. An Ecuadorian Sumatra binder sits beneath the dual wrappers, with the fillers coming from Honduras and Panama.
It returns in a 6 x 50 toro vitola priced at $8.75 per cigar before taxes, and presented in 22-count boxes. A total of 2,000 boxes have been produced for this year’s release, a total of 44,000 total cigars, by the Tabacos de Oriente factory in Honduras. It’s the same amount produced for last year’s release, though the cigars have had tacked on 25 cents to the price.
