Alec Bradley: First Established in Florida in 1996, Alec Bradley is the brainchild of Alan Rubin, the son of a hardware importer, who transferred his knowledge and passion of Cigars into his new venture with the help of Ralph Montero and Henke Kelner who was a cigar maker for Alfred Dunhill. Named after his 2 children, Alec Bradley has become a well known name in the cigar world and now produces between 2 and 3 million cigars each year.
2021 Filthy Hooligan Alec Bradley's annual St Patrick's Day cigar, the Black Market Filthy Hooligan Barber Pole is back for 2021! This marks the ninth spring release of the limited edition Hooligan series. The popular blend features a subtle Candela wrapper intertwined with a dark Nicaraguan Jalapa wrapper leaf adding a rich flavour to accentuate the more delicate notes of the green leaf. Within the dual wrappers, you have a complex blend of long-filler Honduran and Panamanian tobaccos, held together with a flavourful Sumatran binder.
Loose Cigars: The Alec Bradley Filthy Hooligan leave the factory packaged loose in a Cedar lined box. This helps the cigars to develop and flavours to diffuse. They are stored in our humidors until dispatch and ideally should be transferred directly into a humidor. If you are buying them for a special occasion they should keep for up to a week in a cool, dark place.
Hand Rolled: The tradition of being rolled on a maiden's thigh can be questioned but the added quality a cigar beholds from being hand-rolled by an experienced Cigar Roller cannot. Each cigar is rolled to the same density with full-length filler (leaves), providing the perfect draw and ash build-up, which cannot be matched by a machine.
Preparation: Please note the Alec Bradley cigars require cutting or punching before they can be enjoyed.
