Alec Bradley’s annual St. Patrick’s Day releases are heading to stores.

The company has begun shipping the 2020 versions of Black Market Filthy Hooligan and Filthy Hooligan Shamrock.


After quickly selling out last year, the company has tripled the production of the Shamrock to 1,500 boxes of 10 cigars. The cigar is a 6 x 50 barberpole that features three different wrappers—Honduran candela, habano maduro and habano seco—over an undisclosed filler blend.

Pricing for 2020 is $12.50, up from $11.95 last year.

Filthy Hooligan 2020 is also a 6 x 50 barberpole, though with only two wrappers: candela and Nicaraguan Jalapa. It sits over an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and fillers from Honduras and Panama.

Production remains the same as last year—2,000 boxes of 22 cigars—and it’s priced at $10.50 per cigar.

The Filthy Hooligan is produced at Tabacos de Oriente in Honduras.
