For the sixth year running, Alec Bradley is releasing its annual Black Market Filthy Hooligan cigars; a seasonal project made to coincide with Saint Patrick’s Day.

The 2019 iteration of Filthy Hooligan shares similar characteristics to past years’ offerings, including the cigar’s updated look from 2016, a familiar 6″ x 50 toro format, and the barber-pole-style wrapper of Nicaraguan Jalapa and a vibrant, green candela leaf. The cigar’s filler blend has not changed, featuring Honduran and Panamanian long-fillers and a Sumatran binder.

New for 2019, Alec Bradley will also be introducing an even more limited version of Filthy Hooligan that combines a whopping three leaves for the cigar’s wrapper. This cigar has been dubbed Shamrock, making use of a Honduran candela leaf, Habano maduro, and Habano seco—this three-piece wrapper is secured over an undisclosed filler blend.

Both the Black Market Filthy Hooligan and Shamrock cigars are rolled in the same 6″ x 50 toro size. The original Filthy Hooligan is packaged in 22-count boxes, retailing for $9.50 per cigar in the US (prices vary internationally). The Shamrock is much more limited, with only 500 boxes of 10 cigars rolled for 2019. In addition, Shamrock cigars are only being sold to the US market, priced at 11.95 MSRP.

Both cigars are now shipping to retailers.
