The 2017 Alec Bradley Black Market Filthy Hooligan
St. Patrick’s Day, the famous time of the year when we celebrate with Irish Soda Bread and cook a traditional dinner of corned beef, potatoes, and perhaps heading off to our favorite watering hole is happening tomorrow! On this day, everything seems to be available in green – clothing, candy, cookies, bagels, milkshakes, beer, and for the last five years, thanks to Alec Bradley, even premium cigars!
The cigars, called Alec Bradley Black Market Filthy Hooligan, are handmade in Honduras. This seasonal release for St. Patrick’s Day made its debut in 2013 as a special candela wrapper extension off Alec Bradley’s Black Market line. That candela cigar returned in 2014 and 2015. This year’s 2017 version is the same barber pole blend as last year’s, and it has already become a top-seller even before the holiday has begun.
Along with the eye-catching Candela and EMS wrapper combination, Black Market Filthy Hooligan Barber Pole also contains an Ecuador Sumatra binder paired with aged filler tobaccos from Honduras and Panama. The result is a medium to full flavored smoke that explodes on the palate with savory notes of sweet tobacco, spice, pepper, coffee, and cream.
This limited 2,000-box release comes packed in striking emerald green St. Paddy’s day themed boxes containing 22 of these striped beauties featured in a most popular (6 x 50) size.
Make this St. Patrick’s Day special and find a local cigar friendly lounge in your city, eat some Irish food, drink a good hardy stout, smoke the super-delicious Black Market Filthy Hooligan, and May the luck of the Irish be with you!
