The Alec Bradley Black Market Filthy Hooligan is returning for a second run. Earlier today, the company made the initial announcement to Cigar Aficionado. The Filthy Hooligan represents the company’s first candela wrapper offering.
According to the company, the blend and size (toro) are remaining the same on the Second Edition as the 2013 inaugural release. The difference is that the candela wrapper being used has an extra year of aging on it.
It was about a year ago when the Filthy Hooligan was released. For this release, the company chose to base it off its popular Black Market blend, but use a candela wrapper. It has become a recent trend in the cigar industry to time candela releases close to the St. Patrick’s Day holiday and the Filthy Hooligan is no exception.
Last year’s edition had 2,000 boxes produced. For the Filthy Hooligan 2013 edition, the company is releasing 3,000 boxes. Like last year, the Filthy Hooligan will be packed in boxes of 22.
The 2013 edition of the Filthy Hooligan scored a 90 back in March, 2013 on Cigar Coop.
