A yearly release that has been a popular St. Patrick’s Day classic since 2013, the Alec Bradley Filthy Hooligan Barber Pole 2022 is a unique treat that you do not want to miss. In case you are unfamiliar, a barber pole cigar features two distinct wrappers that are intertwined up the length of the cigar in much the same way as a classic spinning barber’s pole.

The intricate barber’s pole design makes this style of cigar one of the most difficult to make, which factors into why the design is exceedingly rare. For the Alec Bradley Filthy Hooligan Barber Pole 2022, it wears two top-quality Nicaraguan wrappers, a Nicaraguan Habano and a Nicaraguan Candela over an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder and long fillers from Honduras and Panama.

The two wrappers add a ton of complexity to the profile, resulting in a rich medium-full bodied bouquet of zesty spice, leather, and nuts over layers of creamy sweetness. Made in small batches, the Filthy Hooligan Barber Pole 2022 is a fleeting experience worth any aficionado’s time.

    I so would have loved to see the five as a sampler or at least some type of small number or singles offer. Even though I would love to give these as a gift to my Irish husband on St. Paddy’s, it is beyond my means. But very exciting, indeed.
